FLORIDA: Palm Beach Billionaire's Row – mansion for sale only $84 million – a post-divorce indulgence?

Recently divorced from a billionaire? Looking for a new house? Check out this one in Palm Beach that just got listed on Zillow. It’s located at  1220 S Ocean Blvd Palm Beach, FL 33480. I mean, I saw the slide show which you can access here http://www.1220SouthOcean.com and I wasn’t hugely impressed. First of all, how do you put such a large, grand home on 2.5 acres of land? Second, it seems more like a hotel than a home and the kitchen is hideous and totally lacks warmth. But if you are recently divorced from a very high asset spouse (who’s recently divorced from a high asset spouse in 2010?…..um….someone like….god, I can’t think of any former trophy wives who can afford this thing….Camille Grammer, maybe… but what do I really know) this may be the house for you:
