With his recent, heavily stylized Beverly Hills Mediterranean out of the for-sale category, ‘Full House’ creator Jeff Franklin has decided to take a crack at selling a property on the ‘other’ coast: a getaway-to-be in South Florida.
The vacant lot is located in the Venetian Islands community, an enclave for the super-wealthy in Miami’s Biscayne Bay. Regular readers may recall Peter Thiel’s acquisition of a two-villa compound in the artificial archipelago about eight months ago; that estate, a location used for MTV’s The Real World: Miami, went to the Paypal co-founder in exchange for $18 million.
Franklin’s property, a slice of San Marco Island which listed in the third week of August with an asking price of $26.5 million, is a palm-dotted half-acre lot. Included with the sale is a cleared set of plans drawn up by a prominent Miami-area architect. Presently, the only structure on it is a partial dock.
The Beverly Hills estate is anchored by a Richard Landry-designed home — Franklin’s second, after the Collingwood House. It last listed for sale at $70 million.
