108-Year-Old Palm Beach House With Spectacular Sun Room is on the Market for $28 Million




Even though Palm Beach is a bastion of old money and old-world wealth, its oldest buildings are barely over a hundred years in age, when Henry Flagler brought his railroad to the undeveloped barrier island and built the Royal Poinciana Hotel in 1894. But not long after that, this house was built. Now located at 245 Dunbar Road, it was constructed in 1915 and moved here by logs from its original site on the Intracoastal Waterway, according to the listing website. Located on a sizable lot, about six blocks from where the Royal Poinciana once stood in the heart of the island, the main house has five bedrooms, five baths, a library, a rambling covered porch, and a spectacular sunroom. The only interior photo in the listing is the aforementioned sunroom, but asking a whopping $28 million, the rest of the house really should be just as special. Hopefully, there isn’t some fishy reason there aren’t more interior pictures, and it’s just because the current owners are very private, or something. Meanwhile, across the pool from the main house is a four-bed, four-bath guest house with its own really nice porches on two levels.
