Mansion builder Frank McKinney has completed his latest creation, and it’s far different from the oceanfront mansions he typically builds. The 4,000-square-foot “micro-mansion” at 19 Tropical Drive in Ocean Ridge is not on the ocean, and it’s priced at the comparatively modest sum of $3.9 million.
The listing agent is Pascal “Pat” Liguori of Premier Estate Properties in Boca Raton. The house is a dramatic departure for McKinney, who long specialized in oceanfront palaces. The idea, he said earlier this year, is that super-wealthy buyers want luxury but not the hassles of owning massive palaces.
“They want all the grandeur, all the opulence, all the artistry we’re offering, but they don’t want it in 10,000 square feet,” McKinney said.
According to the listing:
“Unique amenities include a 650 sq. ft. master bedroom suite with azure-blue glass vanity tops and a second floor glass shower with trees reaching into it, extremely rare sea-glass kitchen countertops, a dining table crafted from a single piece of driftwood, an LED-illuminated living reef aquarium wall, a sun deck floating between two pools + a wading pool, numerous illuminated water walls, and exotic tropical foliage.”
