Real estate developer Craig Menin and his wife Rochelle listed their lakefront Palm Beach house for sale with a $37.45 million asking price.
Menin told the Palm Beach Daily News, “There’s nothing like it. It was built on the coral ridge [next to] the Palm Beach Country Club, so the property slopes nine feet from south to north.”
Built in 1986 on almost an acre of land at 900 North Lake Way, the house has seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, six half-baths and 19,286 square feet of living space, some of it outdoors.
Among the interior features are an arched bamboo ceiling in the living room, a walnut floor, a lapis stone-covered bar and large windows facing the lake. The wine cellar has limestone floor and a custom-made mahogany storage system for as many as 3,000 bottles.
The outdoor space includes a swimming pool, whirlpool spa, sheltered pizza kitchen, cabana, barbecue area, boat dock and koi pond that extends beneath the walkway to the front door.
Menin said the architect who designed the house, New Jersey-based Milton Klein, tried to ensure that all major rooms have views of the water.
“What’s most important to me, Milton built he house to fit the land,” Menin told the Daily News.
