Exclusive Look at MANSIONS of the SUPER RICH on STAR ISLAND
Star Island is a highly exclusive neighborhood of South Beach in the city of Miami Beach on a man-made island in Biscayne Bay, Florida, United States. The island is south of the Venetian Islands and just east of Palm and Hibiscus islands.
Known for its waterfront lots and celebrity residents, Star Island real estate is a man-made island on South Beach that’s just a bridge away from the action. Initially developed by Carl Fisher in the 1920s, Star Island is accessible via the MacArthur Causeway.
Though guard-gated, the island is open to public access and contains a single, oval-shaped street aptly named “Star Island Drive”. Homes are all situated on waterfront lots, while beautiful Buoy Park runs along the interior of the island.
The owners of 42 Star Island, a couple featured on reality television show the “Real Housewives of Miami,” have opened their home, which the Historic Preservation Board of Miami Beach voted last week to attempt to preserve, to the Miami Herald in order to show that the mansion is not worth saving.
Leonard and Lisa Hochstein have already filed the necessary paperwork to move ahead with the demolition of the house, which they bought in a foreclosure auction last year, the Herald said.
The Hochsteins want to tear down the home and replace it with a new 14,000 square-foot mansion with a five-car garage, but the preservation board’s move to protect the home could imperil their plans. As it stands, the 1925 home is built in a “railroad” format, with no hallways between bedrooms, the Herald said.

Celebrities who own or have owned homes on the island include Sean Combs, Gloria Estefan, Don Johnson, Rosie O’Donnell, and Shaquille O’Neal. Tour guides and realtors have made false claims of some other celebrities having homes on Star Island, such as Julio Iglesias, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone, and Elizabeth Taylor
