A waterfront mansion in Fort Lauderdale has been re-listed for $32 million, unchanged from before, the highest asking price among homes for sale in the city.

The three-story residence in the city’s exclusive Rio Vista neighborhood has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms and spans more than 22,000 square feet. The property includes a 3,200-square-foot guest house.

Built in 2007, the mansion is owned by Donald McKinney, CEO of Palo Alto, California-based UnBound Technologies.

DND Associates, an affiliate of brokerage ONE Sotheby’s, has the listing for the property at 1600 Ponce De Leon Drive in Fort Lauderdale.

DND previously had listed the mansion for sale with a $32 million asking price, then took it off the market while it underwent interior and exterior renovations during the last year.

The property, located on a two-acre parcel in a cul-de-sac, has a dock and 500 linear feet of waterfront along the New River.

About 6,000 square feet of granite-paved terraces wrap around the main house. Landscape architect Raymond Jungles designed greenery on the grounds of the mansion.

Handcrafted interior details include a wooden chandelier in the grand foyer and a Brazilian Teak staircase connecting all three floors of the main house.

The master suite on the second floor has a sitting area, a large walk-in closet and an onyx-paved bathroom. The third floor features a hardwood bar, lounge and cigar-smoking area.
