Al Capone’s Miami Mansion

Apr 30, 2018

Category: Living

Though best known as the iron-fisted ruler of the Chicago criminal underworld in the 1920s, Al Capone’s second home was Miami, where he could lay low and avoid the constant threats–from rival gangs or the police–that he faced in the Windy City. Trading in one kind of heat for another, Capone resided in a beautiful Florida mansion from 1927 to his death in 1947. Now you can live in the former home of one of America’s most notorious crime bosses, if you buy Capone’s former winter home on 93 Palm Avenue in Miami.

Fresh out of Alcatraz, Capone purchased the house in 1928 and immediately decked his new stronghold out as only a cautious gangster would. He built a command post, a 7ft high wall, search lights, a cabana and a coral rock grotto. Despite the vestiges of the justified paranoia left behind by the original “Scarface,” the mansion at 93 Palms is as opulent and beautiful as it was in 1928. A simple and restrained elegance marks the facade of the 6,103 square feet, two-story home. A separate, two-story cabana overlooks the cavernous swimming pool to the East, and Biscayne Bay to the West. Despite having undergone two renovations and one remodel since 1982, the home retains its original Prohibition-era allure. Period-accurate interior decor harkens back to the era of Capone and Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde and others of their Tommy Gun-toting ilk. If you’ve ever had dreams of gangster grandeur, then the mansion at 93 Palms might be your paradise.
