Axel Ulrich, an engineer with a penchant for renovation projects, has redone and listed for sale his three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath residence in Palm Beach with an asking price of $4.25 million.
Ulrich bought the 3,694-square-foot home at 1485 Via Manana three years ago and proceeded to add a formal foyer and to update almost every other part of the place.
“The large living room is impressive to me,” Ulrich told the Palm Beach Daily News. “The living room is majestic with its high ceilings. It’s 30 feet at its peak. And the other rooms are very warm … It’s a mash of styles, some Spanish, some contemporary.”
Ulrich also told the newspaper that all the windows and the roof of the 1985-era structure were replaced to comply with Palm Beach building code requirements for hurricane resistance.
In addition, “it has all new plumbing and electricity, and we replaced the old wood and Mexican paver floors with marble,” Ulrich told the Daily News. “The granite bathrooms are all new, and we re-landscaped.” [Palm Beach Daily News] — Mike Seemuth
