Manicured mansion brings French coast's opulence to Florida

House of the Week: from

Palm Beach, that famed rich man’s winter haven, has its fair share of opulent mansions, so many that this one, recently listed for $14.25 million, is somewhat run of the mill. Even that high price tag isn’t going to break any records on this slender Florida island, and (heaven forbid!) it fronts on the lake rather than the ocean. Still, the house and 0.83-acre grounds appear immaculately maintained and any sort of waterfront is something to brag about in these parts.
