LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. — Is Mick Jagger now a Florida man? The Rolling Stones frontman recently purchased a mansion south of Tampa as a Christmas present for his girlfriend, ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports that the four-bedroom home sits on roughly a third of an acre in the planned community of Lakewood Ranch.

It is perched on the edge of a lake and close to its neighbors, with nearly 8,400 square feet under the roof.

The real estate firm that sold it is Michael Saunders & Company. It says the 77-year-old rock star paid $1.9 million for it in late October and put the title in Hamrick's name.
