A historic Palm Beach Florida mansion is now on the real estate market. The 8,660 square foot mansion has eight bedrooms, seven bedrooms with one half-bathroom built on 0.4 acre. The estate includes a library, five fireplaces, courtyard with fountain, pool, covered terrace, and an elevator.
The home was originally designed in 1921 for New York stockbroker Sterling Postley by Marion Sims Wyeth, who would later design the Florida governor’s mansion. The current owners of the house, Joseph and Nancy Dryer, purchased the home in 1961 after moving to Palm Beach from Cuba. The mansion’s eight bedrooms were very useful in two years, when the homeowners housed 12 Cuban exiles that had been captured during the Bay of Pigs invasion and were released.
The mansion, that is now a Palm Beach historic landmark, features wrought-iron gates and a carved Moor-ish style ceiling featured in the living room. The interior courtyard of the home contains a cloister with vaulted ceilings that connects the living and dining rooms. Neighbors of the home include singer Jimmy Buffet and telecommunications mogul John Kluge. Mr. Dryer, who became a stockbroker and businessman after leaving Cuba, said that he and his wife are selling the home to downsize their assets.
Listing price for the Palm Beach mansion is $9.5 million.
