Rapper-Turned-Designer Vanilla Ice Has a Home for Sale

If you’re a child of the ’80s or ’90s, you probably remember Vanilla Ice for his chart-topping single, Ice Ice Baby. During the height of his hip-hop career, Vanilla Ice, born as Rob Van Winkle, developed a loud, cocky persona. But today, the rapper seems to have outgrown his out-sized personality of early adulthood, and he has made a name for himself as an accomplished craftsman, renovator, and house-flipper. While you won’t find outlandish outfits and over-the-top hairstyles, his home design is definitely well worth a look.

Post rap career, Vanilla Ice established The Vanilla Ice Project, a popular HGTV program that shows him as a home renovator in action. One of his recent projects on the show took him to Lighthouse Point, Florida, where he and his crew renovated this 4000-square-foot home. This Vanilla Ice home project transformed a standard four bedroom, three and a half bathroom space into a sleek and stunning home. Curious? Read on for details about this celebrity-renovated home.

Enjoy Canal-Front Living in This Vanilla Ice Project Home

Set in an oceanside community near Boca Raton, the home is a waterfront gem. This Vanilla Ice Project house borders the canal, offering tropical views of the Hillsborough Inlet. If your ideal evening includes heading to the ocean for fishing, enjoying the sunset from your pool terrace, or setting sail on a SeaRay boat, this property has it all.

While the setting alone is enough to draw you to this property, this home’s, dare we say it, “icy” interiors are equally as alluring. Inside, floor to ceiling finishes and fixtures are white, sleek, and shiny. Designed for someone with contemporary, high-style and taste, the home acts as a minimal, blank background to the home’s canal surroundings.

And while you might find the white floors blending into the white floors a tad “vanilla,” the bare bones showcase statement art pieces and bold decor choices. Dripping with white marble, this home is bright and open, making it a perfect oceanfront home.
