A moat is one way to keep out prying eyes. Manalapan, Florida, a town near Palm Beach, is famous for its celebrity and billionaire residents, and there’s no shortage of spectacular homes if you want to call these A-listers neighbors.
This ultra-private mansion is a contemporary treasure that just listed for $30 million, and it’s just blocks away from Oracle founder Larry Ellison, who just purchased a $173 million home in a record-breaking sale to add to his impressive property portfolio. The home is accessed via a stone path surrounded by a mini moat, which leads to the two-story smart home.
This all-glass oceanfront home at 110 Churchill Way is an architectural marvel, with grand, 26-foot ceilings, clean lines, and the feeling you’re living in a jewel box. Apart from the high-quality materials, like Italian porcelain walls and flooring throughout the home, each room seamlessly flows into the other and allows plenty of natural light into every space so you’re never too far from the outdoors.
The home spans 15,303 square feet and has eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The owner spared no expense and also built three kitchens, seven terraces, six bars, five garage spaces, four lounges, and an office, cigar lounge, theater, gym, and 117-bottle chilled wine cellar. There’s also a beautiful dining room with a stunning chandelier and a gourmet chef’s kitchen with Miele appliances. This floor also has a scullery kitchen. The second floor is accessed via a floating, sculpture-like staircase that leads to a loft-like space, or via a futuristic glass elevator. When you ascend the stairs, you have gorgeous views of the living room through the indoor glass terrace. The living room has stunning Chihuly chandeliers and a fireplace.
“This is the most significant modern home that I have ever represented,” says listing agent Dina Goldentayer with Douglas Elliman. “The sheer size and attention to detail are impressive, but it’s a lot more than museum-quality features. Considering the scale, the livability of the spaces and moments of coziness are a surprise. Each room is comfortable and inviting. The house could work for just a couple who likes to entertain or a large family.”
This level is where the majority of the bedrooms are, including the primary suite is particularly fabulous and has two showroom-worthy walk-in closets, inspired by Chanel, and a spa-like bathroom. The bedroom also has a wall-to-wall glass window with picturesque views of the intracoastal waterway, a fireplace in the closet, and custom Italian Pedini cabinets in the bathroom.
However, it’s the outdoor area and amenities that make this home truly shine. There is a large pool with a summer kitchen, hibachi grill, and an outdoor shower. There’s also a dock with 250 feet of water frontage with access to both the ocean and Intracoastal waterway.
Other past prominent residents of Manalapan include billionaire real estate investor Jeff Greene, hedge fund founder Paul Saunders, and the Ziff family.
“The secret is out and all eyes are on Manalapan, one of the most exclusive enclaves to live in Florida,” she says. “With limited inventory of homes, and even fewer of ultra modern design, they don’t trade often, making 110 Churchill the prime opportunity for the right buyer.”
