The most expensive listing in Palm Beach got a little less expensive on Friday. The mansion at 1071 N. Ocean Blvd. is now asking $69.9 million.

Originally listed at $84.5 million, the seller cut the price in 2015 to $79.5 million, then reduced the price in 2016 to $74.5 million. The listing agent is Christian Angle.

The oceanfront mansion includes a basement with space for a bowling alley.

It’s the most expensive Palm Beach property in the multiple listing service. Palm Beach County’s most expensive listing when the Ziff estate in Manalapan hit the market for $195 million.

When I compiled the list of priciest properties in Palm Beach County in late 2015, mansions on the island of Palm Beach swept the top 10 spots. This year, though, Manalapan boasts three of the priciest residential listings, including a mansion that would set a new Florida record if it sells for anything close to its lofty asking price.

Here are the top eight, in reverse order (and with the caveat that these are just list prices, which might not reflect the eventual sale price):

$42.5 million: The newly built estate at 1340 S. Ocean Blvd. in Palm Beach was listed for sale in November 2016.

$43.9 million: This 25,000-square-foot palace is at 1340 S. Ocean Blvd. in Manalapan.
