Renowned football superstar Lionel Messi, along with his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo, has made a significant real estate investment by purchasing a waterfront mansion in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The acquisition was carried out through a company led by Messi’s wealth manager, Alfonso Nebot, as confirmed by records and sources.
The property at 91 Compass Lane was sold to Messi and Roccuzzo by John and Stacy Dickerson for $10.8 million. The Dickersons had acquired the estate in May of the previous year for $9 million, signifying a 20 per cent increase in value over 16 months.
Situated on a 0.4-acre lot, the mansion boasts 10,500 square feet of living space, eight bedrooms, and 170 feet of waterfront with two docks. It features a waterfront pool, a gym/spa room, and an Italian kitchen, as listed in 2022.
The house, initially constructed in 1988, underwent expansion in 2000, as indicated by property records. The primary suite owned by Messi and Roccuzzo covers a sprawling 1,600 square feet.
Messi’s new residence is conveniently located approximately 5 miles from Drive Pink Stadium and Inter Miami’s adjacent training facility in Fort Lauderdale. While the team currently operates there, it anticipates a future move to Miami.
