a land trust named after the property’s address. No other information about the buyer’s side of the sale was immediately available in public records. Robert and Kim Frisbie’s new home was completed earlier this year at 1610 N. Ocean Blvd., immediately east of the one that just sold, Robert Frisbie said.
No. 1610 is one of three side-by-side houses developed over the past five years by the Frisbie family. All were designed with West Indies-and Bermuda-inspired architecture by architect Roger Janssen of Dailey Janssen Architects. Immediately west of No. 219, the house at 225 Indian Road was sold by the Frisbie Group in 2016 while under construction for $32 million and is back on the market, priced at just under $35 million.
The middle house, which changed hands last week, has six bedrooms and about 12,000 square feet of living space, inside and out. It stands on about an acre — with about 121 feet of water frontage — and is the third house west of North Ocean Boulevard.
The layout features an ocean view dining room and a family room open to the kitchen on one side and an outdoor dining loggia on the other. A broad lawn leads from the swimming pool to the waterfront’s private beach and dock. The property also has two guesthouses — one is detached, while a breezeway connects the other to the main house.
Corcoran Group agent and Frisbie Group principal Suzanne Frisbie confirmed that she handled both sides of the sale. She is married to David Frisbie. Robert and Kim Frisbie had the house at 219 Indian Road homesteaded in the Palm Beach County tax rolls. Their new home at 1610 N. Ocean Blvd. has six bedrooms and 11,195 total square feet with a fourcar garage and 131 feet of water frontage.
Two properties bought in 2013
family bought the properties at Nos. 225 and 219 in November 2013. The Frisbies were represented in both sales by Suzanne Frisbie.
Agents Pamela Gottfried and the late Mel Kane of Douglas Elliman Real Estate represented the estate of the late society photographer Mort Kaye when his longtime home at No. 219 sold for $4.465 million nearly five years ago. And Corcoran agents Steve J. Davis and Jim McCann acted on behalf of Alicia and William Blodgett when they sold their home at No. 225 for about $8.83 million.
The Frisbies reapportioned the lots and designed the two homes to take advantage of their dramatic water views of the inlet, the Intracoastal Waterway and Peanut Island. Benitz Building LLC was the builder.
The Palm Beach-based Frisbie Group bought the property at 1610 N. Ocean Blvd. in June 2016 for $9 million.
Suzanne Frisbie was on the buyer’s side opposite broker Christian Angle of Christian Angle Real Estate. Angle represented the seller, a trust linked to the estate of the late New York City real estate businessman Seymour Cohn.
The Frisbie family has built speculative homes in Palm Beach for more than 20 years.
Their latest project in Palm Beach is a four-townhouse development planned for 456 S. Ocean Blvd., on the site of the closed Charley’s Crab restaurant. That speculative project is under review by the Architectural Commission, which last week deferred the design for a month for restudy.
The company bought the property for $26.3 million in April.
On Wednesday, the commission gave Frisbie Group final approval for its plans to develop on speculation a single-family house designed for a lot at 101 Gulfstream Road, immediately west of the townhouse project.
In late October 2017, Frisbie Group bought a nearby office-and-retail building at 125 Worth Ave. for a recorded $30.7 million in the ocean block of the Avenue. The company is headquartered there.
The Frisbie Group also is redeveloping the former Testa’s Restaurant property at 221 and 231 Royal Poinciana Way in partnership with The Breakers.
Construction is underway on a mixed-use project that will include at least one restaurant, shops and six luxury condominiums.
Over the past five years, the Frisbie Group has developed three adjacent houses with docks on the Lake Worth Inlet. From the left are houses at 1610 N. Ocean Blvd., 219 Indian Road and 225 Indian Road.
