Colombian singer Silvestre Dangond just closed on land in Pinecrest where he’s planning to build a mansion with a recording studio.
The Latin Grammy-nominated singer paid $1.22 million for the 38,000-square-foot lot at 5750 Southwest 91st Street, property records show. Francisco Mendez sold the property.
Dangond plans to build a 10,000-square-foot home on the site, according to Marianna Dubinsky of Engel & Völkers Miami. He also just listed his home at 5975 Southwest 102nd Street for $4.6 million. Dubinsky is representing him in both deals.
The new house will feature seven bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms, six walk-in closets, maid quarters, a home theater and a pool deck with a man-made beach and a spa.
A number of celebrities have owned homes in Pinecrest, including current and former Miami Heat players Dwyane Wade, Chris “Birdman” Anderson and Dion Waiters.
Dangond and his wife paid $3.9 million for their home on 102nd Street in 2016, according to property records. The 6,700-square-foot, six-bedroom house features a private master suite with a large terrace overlooking the pool and deck, a summer kitchen and more than half an acre of trees and landscaped grounds.
Dangond, whose albums are produced by Sony Music Colombia, has been nominated four times for Latin Grammy awards and eight times by Premios Nuestra Tierra, a Colombian award.
Silvestre Francisco Dangond Corrales is a Colombian singer. He was born on May 12, 1980, in the town of Urumita, located on the eastern end of the Colombia’s Caribbean coast. Silvestre attributes his talents to his father, the singer William José “El Palomo” Dangond Baquero, who during the mid-1970s recorded 10 singles with Andrés “El Turco” Gil; and his mother, who comes from a musical family and passed down her charismatic nature to him, while also playing a major role in his formal and personal education.
Dangond is the son of amateur singer William José Dangond Baquero (known as ‘El Palomo’) and Dellys Corrales Rojas and has one brother, Carlos Ivan. He is married to childhood sweetheart Pieri Avendaño and they have 3 children, Luis Jose, Silvestre Jose and Jose ilvestre .
One of the leading lights of Colombian music in the 21st century, singer and instrumentalist Silvestre Dangond has become a star with his updated take on vallenato, a traditional musical style from the Caribbean regions of Colombia. Dangond was born in Urumita, La Guajira, Colombia on May 12, 1980. His father was William José Dangond Baquero, who performed as a vocalist in his spare time, using the stage name El Palomo.
Growing up in a musical household, Silvestre became interested in performing at a young age, maturing into an accomplished singer and timbale player. After completing high school, he chose to make music his career, and teamed with accordion player Ramón López. The duo began playing parties and club gigs, making a reputation as a solid live act. In 2002, Dangond and López landed a record deal with Sony Music and soon released their debut album, Tanto Para Ti.
In 2003, Dangond was introduced to accordion player Juancho de la Espriella, and the two soon struck up a professional relationship; de la Espriella replaced López in the act, and Dangond and de la Espriella teamed up for an album, 2003’s Lo Mejor Para los Dos. The duo soon delivered two more albums, Mas Unidos Que Nunca (2004) and Ponte a la Moda (2005), as they became major stars in Colombia.
By the time Dangond and de la Espriella had released their seventh album together, 2011’s No Me Compares con Nadie, they were the nation’s top vallenato act, and received diamond certification for Colombian sales, while the album topped the Colombian album charts. They were also selling out venues in Colombia, Venezuela, and Ecuador, and attracting a growing following in the United States. But despite their success, the duo broke up, and Dangond took solo credit for his next album, 2013’s La 9a Batalla, which featured accordion player Rolando Ochoa.
If Dangond was worried about how his audience would react to his split with de la Espriella, he didn’t fret for long; La 9a Batalla once again topped the Colombian album charts, and 2014’s Sigo Invicto not only earned Dangond another diamond sales award, but topped out at number nine on the American Tropical Albums chart.
