Radio host Tom Joyner lists Miami mansion with boxing ring for $20 million

Radio personality Tom Joyner, who hosted the nationally syndicated The Tom Joyner Morning Show for 25 years, is selling his Miami mansion for $20 million, The Post is able to report.

Joyner, 72, who resides in the Golden Beach gated community, originally bought the three-bedroom, four-bathroom home in 2015 for $10.5 million. But it’s not exactly the profit you would think if it’s able to fetch its initial price.

The 7,300+ square foot space was renovated for a whopping $7.5 million with an elite team including designer Deborah Wecselman of Wecselman Design, architect Wesley Kean of KoDA, contractor Larqcon Group and landscape architecture firm Enea.

Inside, the staircase in the foyer functions as an art gallery, featuring works by Picasso, Robert Pruitt, Allora & Calzadilla, and Ernie Barnes. A touch of Joyner’s favorite color red is diffused through each work, while a custom Bocci pendant light hangs from the ceiling.

The property extends over 7,400 square meters.

Dubbed the “unicorn property,” the master suite features an office and bathroom with a glass-enclosed RiFRA tub in the center of the room and an expansive open closet.

The lower level features a professional gym with a boxing ring and bright red floor.

Described as a “sophisticated luxury” residence, oceanfront living lounges are placed throughout the home with ocean views in almost every room.

At the back is an oceanfront swimming pool with spacious porches, a summer kitchen, a beachfront slatted cabana – and of course, direct access to your own private beach.

Outdoor amenities include an oceanfront swimming pool with spacious verandas, a summer kitchen, a beachfront slatted cabana and direct access to your own private beach.

Golden Beach is South Florida’s only private sand homes community. The ultra-exclusive gated community has its own police force, a private beach with a gazebo and beach service, tennis courts, a basketball court, several parks, and a children’s playground.

Dina Goldentayer with Douglas Elliman holds the list.

“This is a unicorn property in one of South Florida’s most exclusive neighborhoods – and the only one with a private beach,” Goldentayer repeated to The Post. “A turnkey seaside home of this level of design is extremely difficult to find. From the moment you pull up, you’ll be amazed at every turn by the stunning ocean views and incredible attention to detail by designer Deborah Wecselman.”

In 2017, Joyner announced that he would be retiring after his contract ended in December 2019.

“I’m retiring and for the next two years we’re going to be reminiscing, walking down Memory Lane and talking about all the things that we’ve done over the past 25 years,” he said on his show at the time.
