Rudolf Budja, a prominent art dealer known for his collection of Andy Warhols and more than 8,000 original prints of NASA’s space program dating back to the 1950s, has listed his eclectic Florida home for a whopping $29 million.
Located in Miami Beach on the sought-after Venetian Islands, the six-bedroom property boasts panoramic water views, including vistas of the Miami skyline.
Budja purchased the four-bathroom estate in 2005 for $5 million. But the in-demand location has marked up prices in the area significantly.
Spanning over 3,700 square feet, the round-shaped, contemporary MiMo (Miami Modern) home features an open-floor plan, high ceilings, marble floors and an expansive primary suite with dual bathrooms, the listing notes.
The resort-style backyard features a pool and spa.
The MiMo architectural design comes sculpted by Lawrence Murray Dixon — best known for his work at Raleigh Hotel, Temple House and Tides Hotel.
Vibrant colors in each room with art are featured throughout the home.
Jeff Miller with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
“When I first stepped foot on the property, I was immediately taken back in time to an era when Frank Sinatra was frolicking around Miami,” Miller told The Post. “Built in the 1930s, the MiMo style home still showcases many of its original features on display and will impress history and architecture aficionados alike.”
“The circular curves of the home and unique architecture first captured our attention but once we realized it was a Lawrence Murray Dixon, we knew we had to make it ours,” Budja added.
A native Austrian who moved to the United State at age 18, Budja became a renowned private transatlantic art collector.
His collection includes several rare images of the first moon landing in July 1969, including less triumphant but still significant moments in the program’s nearly 65-year history, like the failed Apollo 13 moon landing in 1970 and the explosion of the Challenger in 1986.
The collection is estimated to be valued in the eight figures.
Meanwhile, Budja — who’s the owner of Rudolf Budja Contemporary Art Gallery located in Salzburg, Austria, and Miami Beach — hosts several exhibitions and artworks by Warhol.
After living in the home for 15 years and watching our three girls grow up, we are ready to leave the US,” Budja explained. “The next owner will surely fall in love with the uniqueness and the seclusion, while still being central to the beach and downtown.”
