Mamma Mia! Here’s Your Chance to Own the House That ABBA Built

The Swedish supergroup’s former island retreat in Florida just hit the market for the first time in nearly four decades.

Location: 873 2nd Avenue South, Tierra Verde, Florida

Price: $3,950,000

Year Built: 1982

Footprint: 4,527 square feet (six bedrooms, four-and-two-half-baths)

Lot Size: 0.61 acres

From the agent: "On the quiet island of Tierra Verde, a home suspended in time and originally designed and built in Swedish Longhouse style for the iconic band ABBA has come to the market for the first time in almost four decades. Imagine the band members arriving at the home under the grand porte cochere and beginning their time away from London in this home, custom designed for relaxation and fun. The small island community of Tierra Verde is a very desirable place to live, and Fort De Soto is a short car or boat ride away."

At the home’s entry, a lush front lawn peppered with mature trees extends a warm welcome.

Complete with modern appliances, the kitchen is located steps away from the dining area.

A light-filled, enclosed deck overlooking Tampa Bay features an oversized hot tub.

Because the home was designed to meet the needs of the two couples in the Swedish supergroup, its interior is divided into two "mirrored" floor plans, with each side offering a downstairs primary suite, a loft area, and two bedrooms with a Jack-and-Jill bath. 

"Stories continue to be told of backyard pool days the four talented musicians enjoyed at this home," writes the agent. Other noteworthy upgrades include battery-ready solar panels, a three-zone HVAC system, and a new roof with skylights.
