The next time realtors market a condo at the Symphony Court development in the Fenway, they’ll have a new selling point: if you live here, you could bump into the “Queen of Latin pop.”
Singer Gloria Estefan, her husband Emilio, and their daughter Emily closed on a $1.1 million unit Friday, according to the Suffolk County Registry of Deeds.
Hammond Realty senior sales associates Joseph DeAngelo and John Ranco, who co-listed the property, declined to confirm the Estefans’ purchase. But DeAngelo did say the 10 remaining condos in the 48-unit development started closing about two weeks ago.
“We’ve been strategically marketing the remaining units,” he said.
A listing on the Hammond Residential website describes the unit as a 1,473-square foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo in a refurbished brick and limestone building originally built in 1910. The condo features wide-plank hardwood floors; quartz countertops in the kitchen; Bosch, Liebherr, and Jenn-Air appliances; and an oversized bath with “modern tile and laundry closet.”
It is likely Emily Estefan will live in the condo, which is situated between Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Berklee College of Music, where she began school in the fall, according to an August 2013 interview with Gloria Estefan published by Newsday.
“I recorded “Embraceable You” thinking of her going off,” Estefan told Newsday. “She’s an amazing musician— the best of all of us.”
A Berklee College representative said Emily Estefan is finishing up her second semester at the school.
On Saturday, she posted a Facebook message about her parents helping her “move and stay sane,” and also Tweeted a picture of herself peeking out of a large U-Haul packing box, writing “This pretty much sums me up.”Erin Ailworth can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
