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.

$48.9 million: This 34,000-square-foot spread is at 1370 S. Ocean Blvd. in Manalapan. Listing agent: Jack Elkins, Fite Group Luxury Homes.

$59 million: This newly built estate is at 101 Indian Road in Palm Beach. Listing agent: Sotheby’s International Realty.

$67.5 million: This 22,000-square-foot mansion is at 1485 S. Ocean Blvd. Listing agent: Christian Angle.

$74.5 million: The newly built north-end mansion at 1071 N. Ocean Blvd. (pictured above) spans nearly 33,000 square feet and boasts an eight-car garage. Originally priced at $84.5 million, the mansion’s seller has dropped the price a couple times. Listing agent: Christian Angle.

$137 million: Internet pioneer Jim Clark listed his house at 1500 S. Ocean Bvld. in August 2016. If the property eclipses the century mark, it will set a new record for Palm Beach mansions. Not marketed in the multiple listing service.

$195 million: The Ziff estate at 2000 S. Ocean Blvd. in Manalapan is a massive property with nearly a quarter mile of oceanfront. Listing agent: Joe Liguori, Premier Estate Properties.
