After two years and two price cuts, Khaled Mohamed Khaled—much better known as DJ Khaled—has finally sold his epic Florida mansion. The waterfront retreat on a private island in Aventura, Fla., was on the market for $5.9 million. It’s currently in pending sale status, with a deal imminent. The New York Post reports that the buyer is a “a Florida-based tech mogul."
The 44-year-old music mogul first listed his over-the-top abode two years ago, for $7.9 million. The price dropped to $6.6 million last April, before dipping to the current price last December. No word yet on the final sale price.
The music exec and social media personality purchased the property back in 2015 for $3.84 million.
He then pumped an eye-popping $2.5 million into a massive remodel, which included his own personal designs, custom sneaker closet, and 14-karat gold chandeliers with Swarovski crystals.
With approximately 6,700 square feet of living space, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom Mediterranean estate is an ideal party pad. The dramatic layout features open spaces highlighted by floor-to-ceiling windows, an elevator, and a grand foyer with a granite staircase.
The interior includes formal dining and living rooms, a gourmet kitchen that opens out to a family room, and a wine room. Along with a screening room, there’s also an office, which housed the DJ’s memorabilia. High-end details include vaulted 30-foot ceilings, marble and walnut hardwood floors, and an iPad-controlled smart house system.
Done up in a purple hue, the master suite contains a platform bed, a sitting area and veranda with water views, and the walk-in sneaker closet, which has room for 500 pairs of kicks.
The bay-front home is located in the exclusive gated community of Island Estates, and is the only home on a double lot with 240 feet of water frontage. Outside, you'll find a tropical pool and spa overlooking the bay, where Khaled has hosted celebrity-studded parties.
The outdoor space includes a 50-foot boat dock, a tropical pool and spa overlooking the bay, outdoor kitchen and dining area, a cabana, and golf cart parking.
As for the hip-hop hit maker, he’s moved on. In 2018, Khaled upgraded to a $25.9 million Miami Beach contemporary estate with an 80-foot-long pool, the Wall Street Journal reported.
And for trips to the West Coast, there’s his mansion in the exclusive Mulholland Estates neighborhood above Beverly Hills, which he purchased from the British pop singer Robbie Williams in 2017.
