The Le Palais Royal, now re-named as Playa Vista Isle, is located around Hillsboro Beach in Florida. Inspired by the Palace of Versailles in France, Playa Vista Isle is about halfway from Boca Raton and the luxury beach condos of Fort Lauderdale on the Atlantic Ocean. If there’s anything special about this area, it is the fact that it’s an enclave filled with ornate mansions, which is referred to as ‘Millionaire’s Mile’ by the locals. What’s more? Not only can the homeowners swim or sunbathe in their ocean-facing backyards; they can also access their yachts just by walking a few feet out their front doors. The yachts are docked across the street on the Intracoastal Waterway.
While the South Florida beaches are public, this beach is not very easy to access by all, as it’s behind the street of mansions amidst thick landscape, which gives additional privacy to those living in the mansions. The Beaux Arts mansion is built on 58,000 square feet, with 30,000 square feet of living space. Apart from the 20-car subterranean garage, it has 11 bedrooms, including three master suites and one presidential room with a plunge pool in its outdoor terrace and 22 vast baths. The IMAX home theatre has a 50-foot-wide screen with a seating capacity of 18 and soundproof marble floors. It also has a 29-foot, three-tier fountain, an infinity pool that sprawls over 4,500 square feet, a waterslide, and a glass-bottomed jacuzzi over the swimming pool, and a white sand beach.
Apart from this, the mansion has two deep-water concrete docks on the Intracoastal, which means that the world’s best deep-sea fishing and the Florida Coral Reef are just a stone’s throw away. They can be accessed by a boat via the Hillsboro Inlet. Considered as one of the most expensive and luxurious mansions in the US, it is listed at $159 million for the auction, which was earlier on the market for $139 million and was re-listed after the completion of construction in 2018. -- toptenrealestatedeals.com
