Miami Herald file The three-story, four-bedroom home, at 3521 Bayshore Villas Dr., Miami, sold for $578 per square foot, a record sale for Bayshore Villas, an exclusive waterfront community in the Grove. Brandt paid $712,800 for the home, which includes an elevator, in 1990, according to county property records. It was designed in part to showcase his prized art collection, which was auctioned off last month. Among his works were pieces by Damien Hirst, Rudolf Stingel, Yoshimoto Nara and Christopher Wool, according to the New York Times. “The spiral staircase was custom-designed to show off the art as you walk up,” said Allan Kleer, a Realtor at Fortune International Realty who handled the sale.
