    Love house #1! Good location too (although it isn’t direct intracoastal, it does have a wide water view. What I do not understand is why the house next door wasn’t purchased/made an offer to purchase. Obviously the owner could afford it, and he/she would have had a whole peninsula. House is a tear-down anyway.

    House directly to the south is for sale at $12.995 million. It has one of the ghastliest living rooms I have ever seen.

      Oh dear, that livingroom! I laughed. Looks very staged to me.

      You mean you don’t have the urge to put your feet up and kick back in that living room? From the sofa you could admire the fireplace, from a distance. What’s up with that chair WAY to the right on its own, no table, no lamp, just lonely?

      Oh geez…I just realized that the layout is almost the same as the living room from the Golden Girls on a much larger scale, with even worse furniture!

    I love house #1 also. It’s got a perfect blend of traditional and modern details and in spite of being huge looks like it would be very livable. The location is also great. Lake Sylvia is a nice little spot that doesn’t get a lot of boat traffic but has unrestricted access to the intracoastal. I don’t love the Pier 66 tower looming over the house like it does, but I’d learn to live with that.

    House #2, no thanks. It’s just not a good-looking house. All those relatively small windows in the front make it look too busy. The view out the back is nice however.
