    Usual FL ugliness with regards to the interior…It is so old that when I first saw it, I wondered what happened to talented interior designers in FL…Unacceptable
    interior for $26,000,000.But it overlooks the Atlantic ocean, someone will say…YEAH RIGHT…I don’t care:The house doesn’t deserve that amount of money for the amenities which offer…A FLOP mansion…

      You’ve mentioned before about a few homes that exhibit a “Florida ugliness”. I’m curious what you mean by it, and what state or style you think is nice. Just wonderin’….

    The exterior shots are completely incredible, love the beach setting. The interior is tastefully done but I need a decorator to give it some color and flavor just a bit too much white inside.

    Eh. If it’s possible to dislike a newly-built Palm Beach (almost) oceanfront home, this is it, especially considering the asking price. It needs to be dropped by at least $10 million. I’d much rather have this home for $1.5 million more 4 homes north.

    Bermuda style is down there with industrial contemporary regarding my least favorite architectural styles. It’s SOOO boring, and cozy to the point where the song “Sleepyhead” by Passion Pit should be cycling through the home 24/7/365.

    Overall, The detailing is nice, but certainly not worth of the price tag. Like I said, I would rather have the home above, which could be negotiated down to the high teens/low twenties with no problem.

          Ehh. Nice neighborhood and view, but the house is a little too boxy for me. Not nearly as horrific as some other contemporary homes on this site, but in my opinion, certainly not the best. I’d much rather have this home. It is very very white, but I like how it still looks and feels livable. It sold for $6.8 million in March, by the way.

          My absolute, 100% hands-down favorite dream homes are those built by Jeffrey Smith (He did the Indian Creek home featured on here a few days back) along with Davis General Contracting. They’re creation, La Reverie in Palm Beach, is my number one dream home. I’d take it as-is, where-is, with every single piece of furniture as shown. STUNNING, if a little formal and even a bit too museum-like:

          davisgeneralcontracting.com, and it’s house #4. Honestly though, you can’t go wrong with that team.

            Ha! You live in S. Florida? I live in Boca and drive by the neighborhood (Sun and Surf) almost daily. I’m a Por La Mar, Spanish River Road or Royal Palm fan myself. Christine Lynn’s house in Royal Palm is magnificent, especially around this time when she puts up all the Christmas lights! Tis the season!!!

            Kenny,

            Proof is in the pudding – – – sort of. Make sure you click on “Structural Detail”. The TOTAL Square footage is 42,000+, and that includes garages and balconies. Air-conditioned square footage is 18,785.

          Or if you want contemporary without even a drop of white (which seems almost impossible to do with some of these architects/designers), check out this home. Also another home I would take as-is, where-is. Some of the furniture needs to go, but overall it is spectacular, especially the rear elevation and pool. And that garage (certainly not those cars though)….HEAVEN!!!!

            LOL, no I’m not from FL.

            You know, I was wondering if you can take some pictures from some Manalapan (it’s my favorite town in whole FL) mansions, Coral Gables (Mike Fernandez’s 30.000 sq.foot mansion for example),Hobe Sound,Key Biscane,Indian Creek Island,Tampa etc.It’s much better to see pictures from these incredible mansions rather than seeing it via Bird’s Eye View.It will be nice for all HOTR readers to see all these magnificent mansions.You can send the pictures to Kenny and he will post them.

            Ha. Maybe next time I’m in Palm Beach (probably this weekend 😉 ) I may take a couple. Although it is isn’t the same, Manalapan is now available on Google StreetView. Also, many many homes aren’t visible from the road sadly as they are blocked by hedges and gates. And many are also in gated communities, such as Mike Fernandez’s home in Coral Gables (1 Arvida Pkwy…I am dying to see what it looks like inside/outside). Same thing with Indian Creek – gated. Star Island is accessible but most of the homes are gated as well. And as for Hobe Sound and Tampa, those are out of my territory…Palm Beach, Broward and (rarely) Miami-Dade counties are all fair game for me.

            As a side note, which Manalapan mansion is your favorite?

          Tonio Arcaini’s mansion address is:

          S Ocean Blvd,Manalapan,FL

          It is close to Peter Lowe’s mansion.
          the newly-built home of Dr. Tripuraneni, located next door to the Taylor home.The Bing Maps don’t show anything.How many sq.foot is?

    The exterior is OK to me. I don’t mind the Bermudan style, although it is a little boring. The interior is way too stodgy for my liking. The builder went much more Georgian with the interior and, least in my opinion, it’s too “old” looking. As for the some of the details: I don’t like the main staircase at all; the bar in what I assume is a library looks like a puppet theatre; I don’t like the grey marble in the floor; and, the bathrooms are very lackluster. If I had it, I wouldn’t even consider paying $26,000,000 for this.

    My view of the pictures displayed moulding, trim, doors, cabinets and floors available at home depot. Paint too… . Not a bad thing, but not worth $26 mil. I wonder what is under the paint and under the roof. Knowing Florida construction, I would worry.
