The Palm Beach estate owned by the late fashion designer and artist Philip Hulitar just hit the market for $41.9 million.

The home, at 980 North Ocean Boulevard, was designed by Marion Sims Wyeth, the same architect responsible for President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Hulitar, who died in 1992, and his wife Mary, who died earlier this year, bought the 12,000-square-foot property in 1971. Their two daughters said they will donate the proceeds of the sale to the Hulitar Family Foundation.

Amenities at the five-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bathroom mansion include a pool and about 240 feet of direct ocean access, according to listing agent Ashley McIntosh of Douglas Elliman. The 1.5-acre property, built in 1945, could “use some attention,” she said.

Hulitar, famous for his cocktail dresses and evening gowns, joins a number of fashion designers to call Palm Beach their home. A mansion where the father of fashion designer Vera Wang once lived sold in June for $36 million. In May, American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger moved into town after paying $34 million for an oceanfront estate at 100 Casa Bendita. [WSJ]Amanda Rabines
