Missy Elliott Quietly Unloads Florida Property

MissyElliottMissy Elliott is no longer gettin’ her freak on down at her Florida condo.

The singer-songwriter sold her Aventura property on Feb. 10 for $1.45 million, which was less than her asking price of $1.92 million. Elliott scooped up the four-bedroom, five-bathroom condo back in 2002 for $1.3 million, around the same time she released “Work It,” her most successful single to date.

The 4,740-square-foot abode has beautiful panoramic views of Aventura. Other key features include a media room, four terraces, a marble master bath, marble floors and a wet bar. The building’s amenities also include a spa, marina and 16 tennis courts … not to mention the beach just a few steps away! However, the new owners might want to make some changes to the living room, where Elliott has the word “Missy” spelled out in large letters in the center of the room.

Although she owns other property in Florida, Elliott spends a lot of time with her mom in Virginia Beach, where she owns an 11,616-square-foot mansion that she purchased for her mother to live in. It has six bedrooms, 6.5 baths and some serious amenities, including a gym, indoor swimming pool, an elevator and a home theater.

In a chat with Yahoo’s “The Yo Show,” Elliott addressed her hiatus from the spotlight in recent years, saying that she’s waiting for the right opportunity to jump back in. Meanwhile, Pharrell Williams, who went to the same high school as Elliott, has hinted on Twitter that he’s working on a new project with the singer. It looks like we’ll be hearing more from Elliott soon!

What do you think of Missy Elliott’s former home? Would you ever customize your house with your name?
