Pics of Al Capone's $10 million compound in Miami up for sale

Want to live like America’s “original gangsta”? It’ll cost you close to $10 million.
Al Capone’s massive compound on Palm Island in Miami will hit the market in the next few days — but only modern-day robber barons could afford the $9.95 million asking price.
Capone bought the home at the height of his power in 1928 for just $40,000. Last year, Peter Corsell, founder of the energy solutions conglomerate Grid Point, bought it for $5.65 million with the intention of fully restoring it to its original gangster grandeur.

“Two Versace South Beach villas could fit on this property,” said broker Jorge Alonso of Elliman Florida. “You step up to this huge pool. It’s so glamorous.”
It has verandas, a recreation room, private dock, ornate plasterwork, and a black-and-gold Art Deco powder room that looks the same as when Capone used it.
