Among the flashy estates of Florida's oceanfront properties is the enclave of the late John Kluge, an American billionaire businessman and philanthropist.
Besides his properties in Virginia's Charlottesville, in New York on Long Island Sound, and Manhattan, he assembled La Casa Sin Nombre in Palm Beach. The estate comprises four units that are interlinked to bring about the feeling of a park with 45 metres of beach. Lawns cover almost three quarters of the estate.
Listed on Christie's website, it comes with a price tag of US$59 million (Dh216.7m).
The property has two residences - the "Ocean House" and the "Garden House" - and three guest houses.
Also known as a television mogul, Kluge, a German native, moved to the United States in 1922 at the age of eight.
At the time of his death in 2010 at the age of 95, Kluge was known as the creator of Metromedia. It was the "first major independent broadcasting entity, a conglomerate that grew to include seven television stations, 14 radio stations, outdoor advertising, the Harlem Globetrotters, the Ice Capades, radio paging and mobile telephones", according to his obituary in The New York Times.
Among his philanthropic activities, he donated about $500m to his alma mater Columbia University and an estate to the University of Virginia.
He also contributed to the restoration of Ellis Island and gave $73m to the US Library of Congress a decade before his death.
The Kluge Prize for the Study of Humanities was later established with this fund, according to the obituary.
Kluge was also a collector of arts. The Palm Beach property showcases his love of the finer work. The Ocean House was designed in 1921 by the resort architect Addison Mizner, who left his Mediterranean Revival style on the estate.
Mizner designed several other estates in South Florida. The Garden House, constructed in 1935, is built in the British Colonial style.
