Captain Peabody’s daughter Patty married Elliott Roosevelt, the son of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It boasts 12,580 square feet of living space with 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. The landscaped grounds feature numerous gardens, an aviary and a children’s treehouse. It is listed at $6,500,000.

This Mediterranean waterfront mansion is located at 100 Palm Avenue on Palm Island in Miami Beach, FL.
