Rock star Jon Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea Hurley, are demolishing a 33-year-old oceanfront house in Palm Beach and planning to build a new one on the lot.

The New Jersey native and lead singer of the rock band Bon Jovi bought the house at 230 North Ocean Boulevard for $10 million in March.

Broker Lawrence Moens had marketed the house, built in 1985, to potential buyers who would renovate the property or raze and replace it.

But when Bon Jovi bought the house in March, it was unclear whether he would renovate or replace the house, which had significant storm damage.

A publicist for Bon Jovi was unavailable for comment on Friday.

The Architectural Commission of the town of Palm Beach unanimously approved the design of a new Mediterranean-style house that would replace the demolished house.

Rafael Portuondo, president of Miami-based Portuondo Perotti Architects, designed the new two-story, five-bedroom house, which would have 7,000 square feet of living space.

The town government has not yet issued building permits for the new house.

Bon Jovi was inducted this year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Forbes has estimated his net worth at $410 million, and the business magazine last year ranked him and his band 80th on its list of the 100 highest-paid celebrities in the world. [Palm Beach Post]Mike Seemuth
