Phil Collins just snagged a slice of tropical paradise that once belonged to Jennifer Lopez. The $33-million deal was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

Built in 1929, the Mediterranean-style estate in Miami Beach includes 200 feet of waterfront on Biscayne Bay. The home measures 12,153 square feet and boasts 7 bedrooms, 9.5 baths, and views of the Miami skyline.

J.Lo sold the home in 2005 to businessman Mark Gainor, who told the Journal he spent three years renovating it. Against all odds, he removed the roof and reconfigured the second floor, including creating a roughly 1,000-square-foot master suite.

He kept the exterior’s charming villa style, but remade the inside for contemporary living with an elevator, a giant wine cellar, custom walk-in closets and a three-car garage.

Built for privacy and entertainment, the gated, 1.2-acre spread features a royal palm forest, a pool and spa, a summer kitchen and a cabana, plus a large new dock with a boat lift and double jet-ski lift.

The listing agent for the sale to Collins was Nelson Gonzalez of EWM Realty International, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate.
