Although is just 14 miles long, the gorgeous shores of Palm Beach has long been a favorite place for wealthy to build their nest there. Late billionaire John Kluge was one of them, with “La Casa Sin Nombre” (Unnamed House), a stunning 4-acre property situated on 89 Middle Road. Now, this luxury oceanfront enclave has been listed on sale by Christie’s International Real Estate for $59 million.
Surrounded by the Everglades Golf Course, ocean-front and internationally renowned shopping street Worth Avenue, La Casa Sin Nombre is among The Island’s most eligible pads. Blessed with privileged views of the glittering blue ocean and looks out onto the property’s tropical garden, this stunning property, assembled by the late billionaire, entrepreneur, and philanthropist John Kluge, is comprised of two main residences and three guest houses to fulfill his vision of creating a verdant, parklike retreat with 150 feet of oceanfront and a private beach parcel. With all these separate buildings, it seems as if you have your very own exclusive park at your disposal.
The buyer will also be the lucky owner of not just more than 12,536 square feet of space, 10 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, but also multiple living rooms, formal dining areas and libraries in each of the two main houses. Interiors are unsurprisingly perfectly furnished and seem to embrace a variety of international styles including Mediterranean décor, Cuban-tile floors and the British Colonial look of the Garden House.
The expansive green lawns with a reflecting pool and fountain are a particular highlight and are beautifully landscaped in order to take full advantage of the property’s enviable location.
With its price of $59 million, La Casa Sin Nombre is currently the priciest parcel up for purchase in La Playa de Las Palmas, and Kluge gifted this property to his alma mater, Columbia University, by bequest in 2007.
