Once the home of arguably the most famous gangster of all time, Al Capone's old 10,000-square-foot mansion in Miami Beach is up for grabs again. Capone acquired the mansion in the early 1920s and added a cabana, pool, and lots of security in the form of concrete walls, a guard house, and heavy doors. There's a seven-bedroom main house and two guest houses on the property, so you and your mini-mafia can pretend you're the real deal.

Capone was released from Alcatraz and returned to the house in the '40s, dying there in 1947 and leaving the estate to his wife and kids. The asking price is around $8 million, or if you're into digital currency, you can drop 16 stacks of bitcoins to live like Capone. We're not sure why they think that the Bitcoin option will be a major draw for millionaires, but people have attempted to buy cars with them, so anything is possible. Check out the tour of the property in this CNN Money feature below:
