Celebrity Homes: Alex Rodriguez Industrial Style Mansion – Alex Rodriguez certainly knows a thing or two about knocking it out of the park. The sports legend is a discerning aesthete and it might surprise some fans. The man has an arm; it turns out he also has an eye and that’s what he showed in a interview for Architectural Digest.
After all, the longtime New York Yankees star has racked up some 690 career home runs.The athlete known as A-Rod has created a stunning home for himself and his daughters, Natasha and Ella, as well as his impressive art collection.
Rodriguez started actively looking for real estate a few years ago. At the time, he was commuting between Manhattan and Miami Beach, where he had built a contemporary-style manse overlooking Biscayne Bay. Waterfront living, suffice it to say, did not always allow for total privacy. So he went off in search of a more secluded sanctuary.
“Traveling as much as I do, what I really wanted was someplace peaceful, where I could rest and recover and be with my daughters,” Rodriguez says (their mother is his former wife, Cynthia).
A tip from his sister, Suzy Dunand, a real-estate agent, led him to a quiet lot in Coral Gables, a city that is part of metropolitan Miami. After purchasing the one-and-a-half-acre parcel in 2013, he enlisted architects Ralph Choeff and Paul Fischman in addition to interior decorator Briggs Edward Solomon —the three locally based talents had worked on the hitter’s other residences—to design a house.
