Many people don’t know that John Lennon once bought a house on Palm Beach. Although the famous Beatle never got to live in the house, he and his wife Yoko Ono planned to move to South Florida prior to his tragic death.
The stunning home, currently listed for $47.5 million, is one of Palm Beach’s many architectural achievements.
The seven-bedroom home was, according to Architectural Digest, originally built in 1919 by famed architect Addison Mizner and has been substantially upgraded since then, though it still retains such noteworthy period details as hand-stenciled ceilings and coquina stone accents. Photos show a lavish living room anchored by an oversize, carved-mantel fireplace, with a wall of windows facing the water.
One unusual architectural feature is that the property actually shares a wall with a two-story guest apartment, which, in turn, is linked to the main house by a second-floor bridge. It, therefore, appears as though Lennon and Ono’s former home and the neighbor’s home are linked, though they are not.
