A notoriously gaudy and gigantic mansion located in the town of Hillsboro Beach, next to Fort Lauderdale, known as both Playa Vista and Le Palais Royale sold at auction in November for a 'record setting,' price. However, the actual price itself was kept quiet by both buyer and seller until now, when the Sun Sentinel noticed that the sale had been recorded by the Broward County Property Appraiser, and made public record, revealing both the amount, and the buyer. It sold for $42.5 million.
After a weird five years of existence, the most gilded house in South Florida has finally sold. Formerly known as Le Palais Royale, a name that notched up the palatial factor ever higher, it appears to have been renamed Playa Vista Isle recently. Inspired by Versailles (obviously), it was designed by Miami-based architect Denio Madera.
