I don't believe Jay-Z & Beyonce owned this house, but it is possible they leased it. During the time frame (2007 - 2010) they are alleged to have owned it, Eric Feder, actually owned via Island Capital LLC. The owner prior to Fedor lost it to bankruptcy and Feder bought it from the court, likely with the intention of flipping it. Earlier in 2007 Feder and his wife purchased a house in Aventura where they still live.

TROTER pictureHarrison Ford's Plane
This looks like it could be a P22 but the engine cowl and tail is not the right color for Harrison Ford's plane. Engine cowl on Ford's plane is dark red and half the vertical stab is red/white horizontal strips also the prop isn't the right color either. It's possible that there are covers over the tail and the engine cowl, it's hard to tell. Or it could be pre-restoration. But Ford is known for hangering his planes. Great find though and is a definite possibility that it is his plane.

Hi Paolo, I am sorry to hear about the death of you father in law.I was a member of a band called Pandoras Box who played many times at the Flamingo Club in the 70's and most probably would have met him . Unfortunately I don't have many photos of that time, I was too busy enjoying myself. We stayed in the Complesso Turistico Averno in Pozzuoli and went to Arco Felice many times. I think the Damiani brothers owned the Averno.
I hope you find what you are looking for. Also if anyone else...
