Romero Britto is on the move.
The famed pop artist, dubbed the “Founder of The Happy Art Movement,” recently listed his Pinecrest home for $2.85 million.
Jason Zarco of the Esther Percal Team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices (BHHS) EWM Realty has the listing.
The Brazilian native’s six-bedroom, five and a half bath manse is quite the palatial retreat. Custom-built for him in 2003, the two-story, 7,107-square-foot home is located on a lush lot with “verdant views.”
“This property is a treasured haven in one of Miami’s most sought-after, family-friendly neighborhoods,” said Zarco. “It’s an inviting, exquisitely crafted home that could easily be likened to a countryside escape.”
By all descriptions, this place as sounds as fabulous as Britto’s artwork.
“A foyer opens to a sprawling, light-filled living room with 22-foot ceilings and an ornate staircase,” reads a description. “The warm and welcoming library is a showpiece, complete with wall-to-wall shelves and garden vistas. An expansive master suite on the first floor comprises his and her closets and a spa-sized master bath.”
The elegant meets chill décor was reportedly inspired by a French country estate. But the chef’s kitchen has all modern life has to offer, decked out with top-of-the-line appliances, custom lighting and sleek, wood cabinetry.
Other domestic pleasures include an air-conditioned three-car garage, covered backyard lounge and resort-style pool with a Jacuzzi.
Alas, not included in the sale: Britto’s incredibly colorful works which are plastered all over the walls.
So where’s Britto headed? That’s unclear, but his gallery is in Miami Beach.
“No word yet as to where he’s moving,” said Zarco. “But Romero plans to stay in Miami. He’s very much a part of the city and intends to keep it as his home base.”
