Mixed Martial Arts fighter Vitor Belfort wants to sell his knockout mansion in Lighthouse Point, FL. The gated estate recently landed on the market for $2.89 million.
The prizefighter picked up the waterfront property, located in a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, for $2.16 million in 2019.
Built in 2003, the ârecently reimagined” contemporary space measures 5,000 square feet and offers five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Located on the Flamingo Waterway, the property includes 86 feet of water frontage and a deepwater dock that can accommodate a yacht. From the backyard dock, it’s just a short ride out to the Atlantic Ocean.
Inside, the floor plan includes a formal foyer entry, a living room with a fireplace, and eye-popping wall decor.
A large dining area allows for a long dining table, which is set by glass doors that open to the pool.
The gourmet kitchen includes two sinks, granite counters, and a large island, as well as a breakfast bar with seating. The kitchen opens to a family room, which looks out on water views. An outdoor area for dining has a built-in grill.
On the second floor, the master bedroom and bathroom includes a sitting area and a balcony, a massive bath, and a walk-in closet stuffed with designer duds that the Home Edit team might like to get their hands on. All five bedrooms in the home are en suite.
Other luxe details include marble flooring, a wine bar, an elevator, and three balconies.
Outdoor living options abound, with a lounge space and an infinity-edge pool and spa. Boats and other water toys can be parked at the dock.
A three-bedroom garage completes the property.
Before he bought this property, the cage fighter owned a crib in Parkland, FL, which he sold in 2018 for $1.35 million.
Belfort, 43, is a native of Brazil and made his UFC debut in in 1997 at UFC 12. In 2004, he won the light heavyweight UFC championship at UFC 46. He last entered the ring in 2018, and holds a career record of 26-14-1.
Joe Anastasio with Campbell and Rosemurgy Real Estate holds the listing.
