The owner is asking  just under $12 million for the most expensive Palm Beach home that is both listed for sale and under contract.

Heidi Wicky, an agent with Linda A. Gary Real Estate, is marketing the Clarendon Avenue home, the highest-priced listing in the “pending” category of the Palm Beach Board of Realtors Multiple Listing Service.

The six-bedroom residence at 177 Clarendon Avenue was listed for sale last November, and the asking price subsequently dropped by $1 million.

The town government has designated the home a landmark. It was built in 1929 and designed in a Mediterranean architectural style around a central courtyard.

The home sold in 2013 for $7.3 million. The owner, Linda Blair, oversaw a thorough renovation of the Palm Beach property after the 2013 sale, and the landmark retains many of its original features.

Blair told the Palm Beach Daily News that “the original dance floor is still part of the living room.” [Palm Beach Daily News] — Mike Seemuth
