House of the Day: Extravagant, Even for Palm Beach


The second-most-expensive house on "billionaires' row" in Palm Beach, Fla., this $74 million mega-mansion shamelessly pursues a level of extravagance matched only by its proletariat-galling inspiration: the French chateau.

European marble, oak flooring and antique stone encase the 27,355-square-foot home, which includes a 4,000-square-foot master suite, eight bedrooms, a French kitchen (with an office for one of your prouder chefs), an art-amenable foyer and a 3,000-bottle bar.
