In 1997, the 50-year-old Versace was killed in front of the property by a man who later committed suicide. Tourists can still routinely be spotted taking photos in front of the house.

The property had been operating as a 10-room boutique hotel but had closed.

Versace had famous friends including Princess Diana, Madonna, Elton John and Cher.
