Rosie O'Donnell

Selling Fancy Florida Mansion

3/30/2012 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rosie ODonnell has put her enormous Miami Beach mansion up for sale.Rosie O'Donnell has put her enormous Miami Beach mansion up for sale -- and she's asking for $19.5 MILLION.

Rosie put the Star Island property up for sale today -- just days after her show was canceled on the Oprah Winfrey Network. It's unclear if the real estate move is related to the TV flop.

The home features TWO private guest houses in addition to the main house -- and 203 feet of prime water frontage.

Rosie purchased the 11,000 sq. ft. beachfront property in 1999 for $6.75 million. Apparently, it was a damn good investment.

Thanks to South Beach Condo Blog for the heads up.

Rosie's publicist tells TMZ, the actress now lives in New York full-time -- adding, "She's loved being in Miami for the last 15 years and loved her house on Star Island. Now that her kids are grown with 2 away in private schools there is very limited vacation flexibility and they are not able to use the home as much.."

Her kids are grown? Like that dyke ever gave birth to a child. What a joke. I bet the neighbors can't wait for her to leave and good ridance.

Apparently it's the same house the Ethiopian Zion Coptic Church once owned back in the late 70's/early 80's.

She loves this place like a personal Xanadu. Very surprised she's selling. I'm a fan, but perhaps her un-successes are taking a financial toll.

Good for you, Rose! She's a quality chick and can proudly move into the next stage of her life with her head held high. She wins.

Zillow shows an estimate for Rosie's property at only 8.6 mil. Why does she think she should get more than double it's worth?

Two kids are away in private schools! To me that sounds like she wants the kids but does not want to be bothered by them. What's wrong with public school? That's the whole point of parenting, if you can't spend quality time with your kids and take them to school and pick them up...what's the point of having kids?

I hear they raised the speed limit in front of her house from 25MPH to "Lickity Split".

Star Island has been selling at increased prices for the last 6 months. Rosie paid $6,750,000 for it in March 1999. If she gets $14,000,000, she will have more than doubled her price. House HAVE sold for 20 million + on Star Island recently. It costs a fortune to maintain that property and if she is not using it, she SHOULD unload it now. She owns 2 mansions in New York that are side by side.

If you move and sell the home before you have recouped the costs, you won't end up receiving a financial benefit from refinancing. Use our refinance calculator to help you decide. Check out 123 Refinance calculator to find your refi rates in seconds.

Maybe she is selling because Miami is no longer a sought after vacation spot as it once was, when as a kid we went there on vacation! I now think of Miami as dirty with violence, drugs(quack doctors selling oxy etc), scams, corruption and too many illegal aliens. And No I am not running for Mayor..LOL
