Country’s second-most expensive mansion will give major tax windfall to Hillsboro Beach
Middlesex Corp. founder Robert Pereira is looking to cash in big with the sale of his $159 million home in Hillsboro Beach, known as Le Palais Royale.
But he won’t be the only party profiting from the home in the meantime: Hillsboro Beach is reportedly set to gain a major windfall from property taxes when Le Palais Royale is completed in January.
According to Gossip Extra, which cited information from Hillsboro Town Manager Robert Kellogg, the home is expected to generate roughly $300,000 in property taxes annually.
That bill alone will push the town’s property valuation up by 10 percent.
Coming in at 65,000 square feet, the 11-bedroom, 17-bathroom manse sits on roughly 4 acres of waterfront land that stretches between the Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway.
It’s jam packed with extravagances: six waterfalls, a $2 million grand marble staircase and $3 million worth of gold leaf. The home also has an underground garage with space for 30 cars, a private IMAX theater with 18 seats, go-kart track, ice-skating rink, bowling alley and nightclub.
ONE Sotheby’s International Realty founder Mayi De La Vega took over in November 2015 with a boosted listing price of $159 million, making it the country’s second-most-expensive home for sale, behind the Ziff family’s massive Manalapan estate that’s seeking $195 million.
