7 bedrooms, 8 full baths, 5 half baths, water views and 13,278 square feet…a grand home in posh Palm Beach, Florida. All of that for $42.5 million!
Huh…$42.5 million…I am speechless. I wish I had an extra $42 let alone $42.5 million. Again…I am speechless.
Okay…just got my voice and words back…let’s see is there anything I like about this home? Not at all my style but here goes…I know I can find something I like here…I like the views of the Intercoastal waterways, I like the lanai, I like the pavers in the driveway and lining the pool, I like the pool, I like the exterior facade (front and back), I like the second floor outdoor balcony, and I like the arched doorways and windows. I don’t know what style the home is architecturally but it is new…built in 2008.
What do you think? Take a look…
Okay…just figured it out…wasn’t sure I liked it at all…now, I’m thinking this house does have some potential. Never have thought about living in Palm Beach but this could be my winter vacation home – place to get away from the chilly winters here in my small cottage in the Hollywood Hills (LOL!)!
I would make some big and major changes to the decor…the interior design needs a lot of work in my opinion – I would immediately get rid of all that wall-to-wall carpet in the bedrooms, I would redo the kitchen, take out the scrolly ironwork stuff on the arched front doors, get rid of that stone thing above the living room fireplace, stain the paneled library walls a rich dark color wood so it felt like a real library, change all of the furnishings (except for the lucite table in the living room). I would give the home a design point of view and then use it as a vacation home…yes…January to February (two months out of the year) in Palm Beach. I wonder if that is high social season there. I wonder who my neighbors would be…?
