The late music legend John Lennon and wife Yoko Ono’s pricey former Palm Beach pad is on the market for an eye-watering $47,500,000 — a price that’s hard to Imagine. Get it?
The magnificent oceanfront mansion, known as El Solano, was designed by resort architect Addison Mizner and built in the 1920s.
The 1.3-acre estate features a tennis court, pavilion, sunrise and sunset swimming pools, three car garage, and a cabana on the 180-foot stretch of beach in front of the mansion.
The inside of the stately residence has seven opulent bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and three powder rooms over a palatial 14,000 square feet of living space.
A residence like this wouldn’t be complete without a separate wing for the owner’s suite, right? Right. The main structure of the home is flanked by an expansive master wing, which has a sitting room, study, dual baths, and a large terrace.
Other luxe amenities include a library, oceanfront dining room, and a grand salon with a wet bar.
According to the Palm Beach Daily News, Lennon told the newspaper during a visit to Florida in 1974: “I really like it here. I really don’t want to leave Palm Beach. I’d like to own a piece of it.”
And own a piece he did, purchasing the property for $725,000 in January 1980. The Beatles rocker and Ono began remodeling the compound after purchasing it, but unfortunately Lennon was killed later that same year. Following his death, Ono completed the renovation before ultimately selling the estate in 1986 for $3.15 million.
The residence was reportedly last purchased for $23.5 million in 2016, and has now found its way back to the market for $47,500,000.
