Billy Joel Is Selling His Beautiful Beachfront Mediterranean-Style Mansion In Manalapan. Take A Look.
The Piano Man is looking to sell two Manalapan properties, which together are listed for a combined $29 million.
Listing agent Jack Elkins, with Fite Shavell & Associates, could only say that the listed seller is South Ocean Living LLC, but Billy Joel has been widely reported as the owner.
The two lake-to-ocean properties consist of a 13,216-square-foot Mediterranean-style estate, which underwent a complete renovation and features all new utilities, plus an adjacent empty, almost 2-acre lot.
The fully furnished home has 7 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, along with a guest house that has an additional 2 rooms. Meanwhile, there's already a concept in place for the lot next-door (see the design scheme below) that calls for a breezeway connecting to an outdoor pavilion and a walking path around the whole property.
During the recently completed renovation, the estate's design went from a "heavy Mediterranean to more of a light beach Mediterranean," according to Elkin, and there's a subtle boat theme throughout the house.
Now there's Jerusalem marble, driftwood details, and a two-story living room with 4-foot porthole windows that allow natural light into the room throughout the day, he said.
Elkins said his favorite thing about the property is, hands down, the view.
"The beach is magnificent, and you own it," he said. "When you're on the second floor, you can see the ocean."
Between the two properties, the new owner can have two beach cabanas and two docks (since property owners in Manalapan are allowed to have one per property), Elkins said.
