Rocker Iggy Pop gives Coconut Grove home to his wife, sells Palmetto Bay home at a loss
Rock music recording artist Iggy Pop transferred title to a Coconut Grove house he bought for $4.1 million to his wife, Nina Alu, after selling a Palmetto Bay house at a loss.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom house in a gated community has black limestone floors, a library, a 20-foot entryway ceiling and an outdoor entertainment pavilion with a barbecue area that overlooks a swimming pool and a canal.
Iggy, 71, whose real name is James Newell OSterberg Jr., married Alu in 2008 and bought the house in Coconut Grove in 2016.
The Palmetto Bay property occupies more than an acre and features an aviary, a tennis court, swimming pool and spa, waterfall, wine cellar and library.
Iggy bought the house for $1.46 million and sold it for $1.225 million in June. [NZCity] – Mike Seemuth
