Our friends at TopTenRealEstateDeals.com have rounded up a cool mix of multimillion-dollar homes presently on the market, from pop star Shakira‘s Miami Beach home, to former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue‘s Colonial-style house.

Shakira’s Miami Beach Home

Pop singer Shakira—who now resides in Barcelona with her soccer star boyfriend, Gerard Pique, and their son, Max—has put her gated Miami Beach home on the market once again. The property—which has gone on and off the market with prices ranging from over $14 million to the current price of $12.99 million—now sits up for grabs as an unpublicized pocket listing.

Boasting views of the Miami skyline, the 8,400-square-foot, two-story residence—comprised of six bedrooms and nine baths—rests on a half-acre lot only two minutes away by foot from the Miami Golf Club greens, and sits on the same block as several other celebrity homes, including those of Matt Damon, Cher, Billy Joel, and Jennifer Lopez. Touting zen-inspired interiors, the beach-style house has light hardwood floors, an updated kitchen equipped with professional appliances, and a gym, not to mention a fireplace and a bougainvillea-framed, two-car garage. The Colombian songstress also added a wooden deck around the pool area, accompanied by an open-air dining pavilion (complete with a built-in bar), and a 1,663-square-foot, three-bedroom wing.

There’s also a screening room for 12 guests, a gym, a master suite, a massive closet and luxury bath, a gourmet kitchen with Siematic and Miele appliances, and an outdoor kitchen located on the home’s incredible terrace, outfitted with an infinity pool and spa. A billiards room with a bar and a cigar lounge also open to the ground floor courtyard.

Among its classic features are a spiral staircase, a functioning wood-burning fireplace, original light fixtures and beams, a cantilevered wardrobe, maplewood floors, skylights, private outdoor space, and marvelous 20-foot-high ceilings. Though the home emulates a cozy, traditional feel, its stock of high-end appliances make it appear just as luxurious as it does comfortable.
