One of the Country’s Most Lavish Beach Homes Is Up for Auction—Take a Look Inside
The house will go to the highest bidder, regardless of what the number is.
While tiny living will always occupy a prominent place in our hearts, a small (okay medium-sized) part also relishes the ultra-luxurious. And when it comes to luxurious beach homes, this palatial estate in Hillsboro Beach, Florida, is the crème de la crème.
Located on a stretch of beachfront fittingly dubbed “The Millionaire’s Mile,” the 58,000-square-foot mansion was once among the most expensive real estate listings in the country, asking a whopping $159 million. Now, ONE Sotheby’s International Realty and Concierge Auctions are partnering to bring the estate to a live auction with no reserve—meaning the house will go to the highest bidder, regardless of what that bid is.
While the home’s spare-no-expense construction likely means the winning bid will top $100 mill, those of us without that kind of cash flow can still dream. The lucky new owner of the estate, named Playa Vista Isle, will inherit a one-of-a-kind mansion set on five sprawling acres between the ocean and Intracoastal. Living here means you can park your 220-foot yacht at one of two deep-water docks or lounge beachside along 500 feet of your own sandy paradise.
