Baseball star Alex Rodriguez sold his Miami Beach home Friday for $30 million.

The 54,000-square-foot piece of waterfront land at 4358 North Bay Road was among the highest sales on record in Miami Beach.

Rodriguez bought the property for $7.4 million in 2010. Using his own construction company, Newport Property Construction, he spent another $7.6 million building a nearly-20,000-square-foot mansion.

With views of Miami's skyline and Biscayne Bay, the nine bedroom, 11.5 bathroom home is equipped with a home theater, vanishing-edge heated pool, stand-alone gym and guest house.

The sale will earn Rodriguez a $15 million profit.

Rodriguez's business partner Jose More said he decided to sell because the buyer, who More wouldn't name, made A-Rod an offer he simply could not refuse. More says Rodriguez also loves the design process and is already planning to buy another home in South Florida with a little more privacy.

A-Rod is recovering from surgery on his left hip.
