Historic Boca Raton home hits the market at $2.7M

But most potential buyers looking to tear structure down, says agent

An area known as the Estates, tucked away between Camino Real’s Intracoastal Waterway bridge and the beach side’s multifamily buildings, is one of Boca Raton’s oldest and least altered coastal neighborhoods. And one of the largest homes in the area has just hit the market for only the third time in 75 years.

The property, known as Dickenson house, features crown moldings, three fireplaces, oak floors and nearly an acre of land, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

The home is also one of just nine Boca Raton structures listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

However, Jennifer Dickenson, a real estate agent who is showing the home for her in-laws, said most of the prospective buyers have one question about the house, listed at $2.65 million.

“Most people ask me if they can tear it down,” she said. [Sun-Sentinel]Christopher Cameron
