PALM BEACH, Florida — Have you ever dreamed of living in the very home owned by conservative legend Rush Limbaugh in the oceanfront paradise of Palm Beach, Florida?
Now you can.
The Wall Street Journal reports Kathryn Adams Limbaugh, the wife of the late radio star, is quietly putting the 24,000-square-foot Versailles-style mansion on the market, with an asking price of $150 million to $175 million.
That’s a considerable price hike from the original purchase in 1990, when Limbaugh paid just $3.9 million. Since then, he acquired four adjacent properties, culminating in a 2.7-acre estate.
Rush Limbaugh died in February 2021 after a very public, year-long battle with Stage IV lung cancer.
The home was featured briefly in Zev Chafets’ biography about Limbaugh titled “An Army of One,” as the author noted how the broadcaster largely decorated the property himself.
“It reflects the things and places he has seen and admired,” Chafets wrote.
“The house had a vast salon meant to suggest Versailles,” he wrote, “and a massive chandelier in the dining room was a replica of the one in New York’s Plaza Hotel.”
His book also says the main house is packed with seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, along with a two-story library inspired by North Carolina’s Biltmore Estate which included wood-painted walls and “cherubs dancing on the ceiling.”
Rush was an avid golf player, and the property contains a putting green, hundreds of feet of oceanfront property as well as a swimming pool and 24-hour guard station.
The Daily Mail reports: “Real estate has exploded in the Palm Beach area since the beginning of the pandemic, with sales totaling tens and hundreds of millions of dollars for the likes of Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison.”
“The potential valuation of $175 million, if achieved, would break Ellison’s $173 million record for real estate sales.”
