    Ahh this house. Off and on the market soooo many times. Current owner bought it in April of 2010 for $12.65 million. The owner is also unloading this home he bought in June of 2004 for $14 million. Currently it’s listed at $12.9 million:

    With that said, both of his homes are very very very nice, and both were built by Mark Timothy (marktimothy.com). Overall, I like this home a lot. I like it’s close location to Atlantic Avenue. The home itself is a bit quirky, especially the front entrance. I wish that the walkway and courtyard pool could have been done differently. Not terrible, but odd indeed. Overall, I love the interior. Very elegant yet livable. Master bedroom and sitting area are a little too feminine, though it could be easily changed. What I don’t get is why the oceanfront pool was added (Originally, the home only had the courtyard pool). What a complete waste of resources. It’s not like either pool is a lap pool or bathtub-sized; they are both big enough to swim and enjoy. I would have just made it zoysia grass.

    Overall, an 8 out of 10 in my book. I would be VERY surprised if he got over $15 million for it, considering nothing has changed since he bought it. Dare I say, I’d give up the ocean for his other home…Lake Boca is very desirable and it is a magnificent view either way…plus I’d be saving $3-$4 million if not more for a great armada of Ferrari/Rolls/Lamborghini/Aston Martin 😀

    It’s definitely a nice house, but the interior is flat out not my style. It’s way too stuffy for my liking. Why have a house on the beach but have an interior where you’re afraid to put your feet on any of the furniture? For me, a beach house would be casually elegant; there’s nothing casual about this place at all. The interior is well done and I think the kitchen is great but I go back to the fact that none of it is casual.

    I also don’t get the idea of two different pools, even though the listing tries to portray it as the ultimate luxury.

    The interior is impeccably BRILLIANT!!!I don’t know from where I start: The awesome
    dining room? The impressive and very spacious bathroom?The most parts of the interior are exceptional as I mentioned.However, the bedrooms desperately need more luxury.What the heck?It’s Palazzo…
