Although he’s not as rich as his billionaire friend Warren, with whom he shares a title even though he doesn’t have DNA, Jimmy Buffett didn’t do too badly by depicting the life of the escapist beach left – as his steady-spin described in 1977 in “Margaritaville”. With a business empire based primarily on its Margaritaville cafe restaurant chain and its numerous merchandising spin-offs, Buffett’s total value is currently over 5 550 million, according to Forbes.
So Traudbauer-turned-tycoon can buy and sell real estate of his choice. The latest holding to Jetsison from its padded property portfolio is the nearly 4,800-square-foot Palm Beach, Flash Home that just sold for 6. 96.9 million, as Mansion Global first reported.
The marketing materials aptly describe the island as “contemporary” and the resort-like spread, built in 2003, which Buffett took for $ 4.9 million in 2011, was originally listed at 6 6.8 million. In true buffet fashion, the sun-decorated dwelling is designed to shrink, and the stone back lounges are set around a cobalt-blue pool in a harmonious backdrop of giant date palms and other mixed tropical trees. Finished beach access allows owners and their guests to walk shoelessly to the sea.
Includes three bedrooms, a guest suite above a two-car garage on a single-story 3.5-bath, while all main rooms enjoy a volcanic ceiling covered by Capola skylights. In the living room, the walls of the sliding mahogany frame doors are topped with loose linen furniture, white tiled floors, and a string of cluster windows against shiplap-shelled walls. Elsewhere, Buffett’s passion for preserving jungle-themed artwork and the monochromatic all-white kitchen opens into a combo living / dining space with plain wooden cabinets and pale wood floors.
The guest bedrooms are generously shaped with up-to-date attached baths, but the master suite features open glass doors for both pools and a splash-like bath with watery blue marble and snow-white floor tiles.
The house has a dedicated dining area, but the more interesting Al Fresco option is in a loggia just a few feet away from the pool that provides a rustic wooden table with bare feet decorated with images of barbecue and santan snacking. In gardens, tropical plants are topped with original pergolas in tube-brick paths while planted palms are reflected in the sparkling pool. In a small courtyard outside the living room, a gargling fountain adds to the root-behind environment. All in all, it’s enough to make a margarita and reach for a shake of salt.
Buffett, who owns a seven-plus-acre faade in Hampton since the mid-1990s, owns a trip to the Caribbean island of St. Barts near Buffett and a state-of-the-art Beverly Hills pavilion that was presented in 2014 at 8. 8.25 million in Dennis. Dennis Hanley of Hanley Inc. was his listed agent in the Palm Beach deal; The buyer was relocated by Christian Angle of Christian Angle Real Estate.
