At $74.5 Million, This Mansion is Actually a Bargain

Lots of areas can stake legitimate claims to being “the American Riviera,” it’s just that Palm Beach, Florida’s claim is more legitimate than most. The sparkling blue waters, the powdery white sands and the super-fancy housing conspire to create one of the most desirable – and therefore most expensive – communities in the country. And now there’s a stunning, recently-built oceanfront mansion for sale there that is quintessentially Palm Beach.

Completed just last year, this 35,993 square-foot Mediterranean-style villa sits on a roughly two acre lot whose 242-foot long eastern edge abuts the Atlantic shore. The eight bedrooms and 17 bathrooms (seven full and 10 partial) are joined by the likes of a billiard hall/pub, wine room, library, home theater, game room, a bowling alley, a gym, and even a barber shop! Outside you’ll find such amenities as a massive pool with attached spa and an open-air summer kitchen, while dual four-car garages provide room for eight of your prized rides. Yes, the $74.5 million asking price is well beyond the reach of any monetary mortal, but that’s actually 10 million bucks lower than the figure the owners sought initially. Hey, even one-percenters can appreciate a nice discount…
