Univision anchor wants $3.4 million for Gables home

“Noticiero Univision” anchorwoman Maria Elena Salinas put her Coral Gables house on the market earlier this month, and she stands to make a mint.

Salinas, 62, wants $3.4 million for her property on Granada Boulevard in the heart of the city, according to real estate records.

WFOR-CBS4 anchor Eliott Rodriguez was once married to Salinas, and they bought the place together in 1995 for $500,000.

Then when they divorced in 2007, Salinas kept the property as part of their settlement, and Salinas now owns the place free and clear, according to records.

Rodriguez didn’t return a call for comment. Salinas said she didn’t want to talk about her divorce or that she bought the house with Rodriguez 22 years ago.

“I don’t want to talk about my house,” she said. “It’s for sale. That’s it.”

The property, meanwhile, is touted as a 1937 architectural gem on a corner lot with five bedrooms and a giant family room with exposed beams.

The 4,500-square-foot mansion was designed by Phineas Paist, Coral Gables founder George Merrick’s architect.

Salinas has held the anchor’s desk at Univision for more than 30 years. She announced in January she’ll host an English-language investigative journalism show, “The Real Story,” slated to premiere this summer on Investigation Discovery.
