Ricky Martin officially decamped from Miami Beach after selling his house last week for $10.6 million, reports The Miami Herald. Martin's mansion, which closed Thursday to an undisclosed buyer, was originally listed for $12.5 million. The home is so posh that even Jay-Z and Beyonce reportedly toured the estate last December.

Although very lavish, Martin's Miami Beach mansion had been on and off the market for nearly five years. The singer scooped up the property back in May 2005 for $10 million, which means he did indeed make a slight profit on the sale of his home.

The luxurious home features bay views from most rooms in the house. And it comes in at a whopping 9,500 square feet. What's not to love?

Here's an interior shot of the first-class mansion, which Martin is leaving behind for the Big Apple. Martin's spokesman commented to The Miami Herald, "“As much as Ricky loves [South Florida] ... Ricky is currently performing eight shows a week at the Marquis Theatre in Times Square, and it would have proved to be a somewhat difficult daily commute.”

This spacious kitchen boasts enough room to whip up some tasty meals. And, if the new owners are looking to throw a dinner party, they can invite over Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and Bee Gees frontman Barry Gibb who all live just up the road.

A view of Martin's former dining room. Martin owned another property in South Florida in Golden Beach. He unloaded it for $6.3 million last fall.

The luxurious home features a fully wired media room and a private dock (not photographed). We guess Martin will certainly miss livin' la vida loca in this sweet mansion.
