UPDATED, July 17, 4:15 p.m.: Rock star Jon Bon Jovi sold a new oceanfront home he built in Palm Beach that was listed for $22.9 million, and is said to be the buyer of a larger mansion nearby.
Bon Jovi and his wife Dorothea Hurley demolished the previous house at 230 North Ocean Boulevard and built a five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom home on the property. The Shapiro Pertnoy Construction Group built the home.
The 5,024-square-foot house, with oak and limestone floors, a library, pool, loggia, and oceanfront master suite, was on the market with Christian Angle of Christian Angle Real Estate. Angle did not respond to requests for comment.
Bon Jovi paid $10 million for the property in 2018.
