Messi’s Potential South Florida Residence: A Glimpse into His Possible New HomeJuly 21, 2023
As Lionel Messi makes his official debut as a player for InterMiami CF, there’s been speculation about his whereabouts in South Florida. Social media has been buzzing with photographs of Messi spotted shopping at a local Publix supermarket. Surprisingly, even one of the greatest soccer stars does ordinary tasks like grocery shopping.
The photos revealed Messi was with his family at the Publix in Sea Ranch Lakes, a small village in Broward County, about 5 miles away from Drive Pink Stadium, where InterMiami plays their matches. The team trains at the nearby Florida Blue Training Center, making the location of Messi’s potential residence quite convenient.
Sea Ranch Lakes is known for its privacy and waterfront properties, making it an attractive choice for someone like Messi. With just over 500 residents, most of the village is a gated community, ensuring a sense of exclusivity and security.
Sources have indicated that Messi is actively looking to purchase a home in Broward County. While he already owns three condos in Sunny Isles Beach, including one at the prestigious Porsche Design Tower, he is unlikely to reside there. Instead, he may explore other high-end neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale, such as Bay Colony.
Real estate experts believe that Sea Ranch Lakes aligns well with Messi’s preferences, offering privacy, guard-gated security, and proximity to good schools and the stadium. Chad Carroll, a top Compass broker, highlighted the appeal of Sea Ranch Lakes for Messi and his family.
Suppose the soccer star and his family decide to make Sea Ranch Lakes their home. In that case, they may be considering some of the most expensive waterfront properties in the village:
5 Saranac Road: Listed at $12.9 million, this five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom house spans 6,600 square feet on a 0.3-acre lot. The property boasts private beach access, 112 feet of deep water frontage, a home gym, a theater, a pool, and cabanas.
28 Minnetonka Road: Priced at nearly $11 million, this 6,215-square-foot, five-bedroom home features a stunning $500,000 saltwater infinity pool with a custom waterfall, 112 feet of water frontage on the Intracoastal Waterway, and a sunken fire pit.
7 Seneca Road: With an asking price of nearly $9 million, this 7,100-square-foot, seven-bedroom house is among the most expensive homes on the market in Sea Ranch Lakes. According to the listing, the 0.3-acre property is either almost completed or about to be.
As Messi prepares for his first home game with InterMiami CF against Cruz Azul, fans and real estate enthusiasts eagerly await news of his final choice for a residence in Broward County. With its exclusive and picturesque waterfront properties, Sea Ranch Lakes seems to be a fitting choice for the soccer superstar and his family.
