$42 Million Real Estate Listing Caught My Eye

$42 Million Dollar Hillsboro Florida HomeSometimes I like to peruse the high-end real estate ads to see what is on the market, but this time I was left with my jaw-agape, like the first time I ever encountered “Jon & Kate Plus 8”.  There is a $42 million dollar real estate listing.  That is more than a very impressive super yacht.  In fact, I assume I can purchase my own island for that, to escape the likes of Jon and Kate and the creepy “Octomom”.

Ok, let’s shake off those terrible visions and move on to the topic at hand, this very pricy piece of real estate.  It is a residence, sweeping along the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway at 927 Hillsboro Mile, in Hillsboro Beach, Florida.  Think that is a high asking price?  It does come furnished, if that sways you.

The luxury property sprawls over 2.8 acres of Hillsboro Beach, complete with 232 feet of coveted Atlantic beachfront, and 250 feet of Intracoastal space with a deepwater dock (you know, for you to store your luxury yacht).

There is a striking almost etched formal entry to open up the home. The landscaping is manicured, a true work of art by landscape architect Fernando Caruncho.  There is an infinity edge pool, which we love, and it spills into a lap-lane. 

Despite the lofty price, this property is appealing because of the understated luxury and obviously exquisite materials.  The balance of space and form is complimented by the cerulean hues of the South Atlantic and the baby blue sky, the perfect backdrop for the sand colored French limestone and white oak millwork. 

So other than your own seaside luxury resort, what will $42 million buy you?  There are 19,296 square feet of living space with 7 bedrooms, 7 full and 3 half baths, 3 elevators, and a 9-bay subterranean garage.  You know, to store your Ferrari F430 Spider, Lamborghini Gallardo, James Bondish Aston Martin and other luxury cars. 

The luxury mansion was designed by industry renowned Legoretta & Legoretta, with interiors by Chicago based Gregga Jordan Smieszny.
