J-Lo might not be from this particular block anymore, but British rocker Phil Collins is. He snapped up a Miami Beach mansion she once called home for a cool $33 million.
"It's true, Mr. Collins purchased this house," Mathieu Rochette at Barclay's Real Estate Group, who represented Collins in the transaction, told AFP on Tuesday.
The vintage late 1920s home sits on a large, one-acre plot with sweeping views of Biscayne Bay and the downtown Miami skyline.
"It's amazing, one of the best houses in Miami," Rochette said. The home also boasts its own boat slip, pool and koi pond.
The house was sold to Collins by businessman Mark Gainor. Gainor in turn bought it from Lopez, in 2005, for $13.5 million before renovating it from top to bottom.
Collins, the realtor said, also likes that his Miami home has quite a bit of tree cover.
One of his neighbors will be Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, according to the South Florida Business Journal.
The 64-year old, who first rose to prominence as the frontman and drummer for Genesis, is now a solo artists, producer, actor and author.
