Peter and Constance Lacaillade, of Palm Beach and Boston, purchased the
lot at $4.6 million from a Canadian corporation headed by Ricky Cohen,
according to a warranty deed recorded in Palm Beach County. The Cohen
family had demolished the home on the site, after being temporarily halted
by the town’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. The home had been
designed by Alfred Browning Parker, who was heavily influenced by Frank
Lloyd Wright, and featured high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass, and
other notable architectural touches. The home, built in 1960, was never
landmarked, however, and was torn down by the Cohens two years ago. [Palm Beach Daily News]
