Billy Joel loves you just the way you are, but deep-pocketed buyers haven’t proven so keen on the Manalapan property he’s selling. So Joel cut the asking price of the spread at 1920 and 1940 S. Ocean Blvd. to $27 million.
Last year, Joel put the properties on the market for $29 million. Jack Elkins of Fite Shavell remains the listing agent. Joel in 2014 paid $11.8 million for 1920 S. Ocean and $6.5 million for 1940 S. Ocean, then paid for what Elkins called “a massive renovation.”
Joel, 67, is famous for the classic hits “Just the Way You Are,” “Big Shot” and, of course, “Piano Man.”
