The first home ever built on Palm Beach’s Everglades Island has been sold for $5.72 million, the Palm Beach Daily News reported. The property, which is located at 670 Island Drive and was designed by architect Gustav Maass Jr., has a total of 5,270 square feet. Corcoran’s Rosalind Clarke had the listing since January 2011. “I think it was a fair price, in view of what was happening in the marketplace,” she said. The seller was a limited liability company that had owned the home since 1999. The buyer, a trust, was represented by Christian Angle of Christian Angle Real Estate. “It’s a lovely house with a beautiful view,” Angle said. [Palm Beach Daily News]
