House Of The Day: 'Understated' But For The $40 Million Pricetag


"Understated luxury" captures the character of this mansion, according to the listing description. But that's only true if a series of limestone boxes dancing over 230 feet of Florida beachfront to the tune of $39.95 million is "understated."

Located in Hillsboro Beach, Fla., the house is almost conspicuously minimalist, its "pure white forms in profound harmony with verdant foliage and cerulean water and sky" (that's green and blue, to the rest of us). Occupying close to three acres of Atlantic beachfront, its 19,296 square feet contain seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms along with a nine-bay underground garage, gourmet kitchen, morning room, family room and bar. As befits the land of little clothing, grooming facilities abound: the home offers a gym, massage room, steam room, sauna and spa bath.


Gerald Liguori of Premier Estate Properties has the listing.
