Tom Gerrard, the current mayor of Manalapan, FL, has put his 42,709 square foot oceanfront mega mansion on the market for $35,900,000. It is located at 1920 South Ocean Boulevard. It was built in 1989 and boasts 5 bedrooms and 12.5 bathrooms. I’ll post up more pics and information as they become available.

    FYI, the listing link takes you to Guy Dreiers website.

    As for the house, it’s typical South Florida mansion, albeit a big one. Interesting that it only has 5 bedrooms despite its size.

    Can’t wait to see what it looks like inside, considering it is being sold furnished.

      This was exactly the first thing that I considered when I saw the post: How it will look the interior?

    I would be curious to see the inside. But, honestly, I can’t figure out why anyone would need a 42,000 square foot house.

      It’s actually a *paltry* 18,000+/- air-conditioned square feet. The rest is garages and balconies.

        That makes more sense to me, based on the pictures. It doesn’t look like 42,000 sq. ft. 18,000 is definitely more realistic, if not still huge.

          I agree:18.000 sq.foot in this mansion is closer to reality than 42.000 sq.foot…

    It’s actually just under 19,000 sqft if living space. The 42,000 sqft includes 5,500 sqft of storage, 8,700 sqft of garage (approximately 15 cars), and 10,000 sqft of patios and porches. In addition to the main house, there’s a 300 sqft beach house.

    Even though it’s a huge home, I’m not a fan

    You know what I hate about large mansions? When they sit on too small a plot! This home is too large for the site. Classic example of that

      I hear ya’ LOUD & CLEAR, Stewie……talk about BEATING THE HELL out of the original purpose!! And it looks UTTERLY RIDICULOUS on such a small piece of land……if zero lot-line (or close to it) McMansions became illegal……how many hundreds of thousands (or millions?) of owners would be in jail?

      Also, as a rule I basically loathe such totally useless gargantuan “single family homes” UNLESS there is a reality-based reason for such a monstrous place. Like 5, 6 or more kids, or extended family living there full time. I guarantee you that 95% of owners of such homes today most likely never legitimately used/needed every room in their home, much less all at once, ever!

        I guess mentioning that this is a seasonal residence won’t make you love it…

            Ha! Well, unlike MANY of these gigantic homes with huge price tags, Mr. Gerrard built this home AND has lived in it ever since (1989). He purchased the lot in 1983 for $525,000. So you at least have to give him credit for liking and living in this colossus.

    Where does a mayor come up with that money? South Florida, huh? Maybe some drugs on the side

      Or perhaps he is a successful businessman that decided to give local politics a try. Ya know, not all millionaires are corrupt.

      Here’s a little biography:

        Actually, all millionaires are corrupt, it’s just that most are smart enough to not get caught.

          Your statement makes no sense.
          All millionaires are corrupt?
          Really?

          So if you went out and bought a lottery ticket and won $50 million, you are corrupt?
          If you spent the better part of your life in college and medical school to become a surgeon and save people’s lives, you are corrupt?
          If you wrote a book and it became successful or sung a hit song you are corrupt also?
          My next door neighbor is an awesome basketball player and scores over 20 points a game in the NBA, is he corrupt also?

          Unreal….

          That’s a big lie.

    well i also dislike homes that are way too big for their lots (about 99.9% of florida mansions) but i do like the home in general. i mean theres alot going on but i like aspects. i like the driveway, i like the underground garage, and i like the yacht 🙂 homes not horrible but id have to see the inside.
