Pulitzer’s home—710 South County Lane in Palm Beach, Florida, also known as the Jungle for its lush and abundant foliage, has been on the market for a number of years. Back in January 2011, the estate—just over 9,000 square feet set on 1.4 acres of land—was listing for $11.5 million. But today, like all of last season’s dresses, it can be had at a discount—just $8.5 million.
The property,at 710 South County Lane in Palm Beach, is being marketed as “land” because of its valuable location in the interior section of Palm Beach. Potential buyers would have the option to tear down all three houses.
The tropical landscaping, arched windows, and architectural loggias are beautiful, and a peek inside reveals some rather unsurprising textiles and decor: palm trees, lots of pattern and color, and plenty of room for entertaining.
Known as “the Jungle” because of its flourishing foliage, the approximately 9,000-square-foot estate is on 1.4 acres of land and features a main house with four bedrooms, a “casita” with three bedrooms and a pool house with two bedrooms. According to the property’s MLS listing, it can be subdivided into two lots.
