Life is good for award-winning rapper Future, who has bought a $16.3 million contemporary waterfront home in Miami Beach, The Real Deal has learned.
The singer-songwriter, whose real name is Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn, purchased the 7,250-square-foot, seven-bedroom home at 6493 Allison Road, according to sources. Laurent and Pascale Ouazana sold the property. Laurent Ouazana was CEO of Entoria, one of the largest insurance brokers in France, and is now a board member, according to LinkedIn.
Future, who won Grammy and BET awards, bought the Allison Island lot at an 18 percent discount off the asking price of $19.9 million, according to the listing. He recently sold the publishing rights to his catalog to investment firm Influence Media Partners in a deal worth “in the high eight figures,” Variety reported in September.
Douglas Elliman’s Dina Goldentayer represented the Ouazanas while Jordan Karp of Jordan Karp LLC represented Future. Goldentayer and Karp declined to comment on the deal.
The sale was recorded on the Multiple Listing Service on Wednesday evening.
Developed in 2020, the property includes staff quarters and a detached guest house, pool and cabana, 75-foot water frontage and a three-car garage.
The Ouazanas paid $12.5 million for the property in 2020, which was part of a double lot. The couple sold the other lot at 6505 Allison Road to developer Todd Michael Glaser and his partners Scott Robins and Jonathan Fryd for $7.9 million. They plan to build a 10,000-square-foot mid-century modern style mansion on the site. Goldentayer also brokered this deal.
The Ouazanas moved to Fort Lauderdale, where in September they paid $9.7 million for a new home and adjacent lot in the enclave in the Coral Ridge Country Club community. Goldentayer represented her in her purchase.
Recently, Grammy Award-winning rapper Lil Wayne listed his 11,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom mansion at 6480 Allison Road for $29.5 million starring Douglas Elliman’s Cyril Matz. Spec Home developer Laurent Harrari built the mansion in 2017.
Though sales in Miami Beach and across South Florida have slowed this year, buyers are still setting neighborhood price records with their deals. French rapper Booba sold his Miami Beach home to Komodo and Gekko investor Nick Smith for $6.1 million in October.
Also last month, Steve Walbroehl, the co-founder of Miami-based blockchain security startup Halborn, bought a nonwaterfront home in Miami Beach’s Lakeview for $8.6 million, setting a price record for dry land the neighborhood.
