A House With a Dark Past, Al Capone’s Florida House for Sale


I love a house with a dark past, so news that Al Capone’s Florida house is for sale caught my attention. Capone’s winter home is selling for $6.8 million and it’s a fixer-upper in need of love. The current owner has lived there for 35 years (he bought it for $56,000) and the walls are cracking, the plumbing is vintage and there is no air conditioning.

The Miami Herald reports that the home was originally built for Clarence Busch of the Anheuser-Busch brewing dynasty and sold to Capone in 1928 for $40,000. The home has all sorts of Art Deco details and is a decent deal considering the real estate prices in Miami Beach which is why it looks like it has already been sold.

A quick jaunt over to Majestic Properties reveals that the home is listed as pending. You can get an interior peek at the home (oh yes, it’s dated all right) through this story done by the Local 10 news station.
