The house where Gianni Versace, the famous fashion designer was shot dead on his doorstep in 1997 goes up for auction on 17 September. The property already attracts a number of tourists who pose for pictures in front of the gates which surround the property even though the property has not been owed by the famous designer’s family since 2000.
It is believed the property is still decorated in its original form as it was when Versace originally decorated it with Versace logos. To view the property as a prospective buyer a confidentiality agreements must be signed. Also all potential buyers will have to prove from the outset that they have funds to close a deal when purchasing the Miami mansion.
The property which is referred to as ‘the Versace mansion’ has officially been named as Casa Casurarina for over a decade. When the property was originally put up for sale a year ago it was listed for $125million which subsequently fell last month to $75million. It has now been confirmed the minimum bid for the property when it officially goes up for auction on 17 September will be $25million.
There are high expectations for the sale of this property but only time will tell how much the famous home is sold for.
