    This Palatial Italian Renaissance-Style Estate in South Florida Can Be Yours for $60 Million - 04/05/2024

    Listed for $60 million, Mar Pietra, which means “stone of the sea” in Italian, is one of Delray Beach, Florida's most expensive and glamorous estates.

    The home’s optical mogul owner, Massimo Musa, is the co-founder of My Eyelab, the Lasik Vision Institute, Eyeglass World, and Stanton Optical. For Mar Pietra, Musa, who is from Italy, was inspired by the architecture of Italian Renaissance palazzos, as well as his global travels and South Florida vernacular architecture.

    To bring his singular vision to life, he tapped renowned South Florida-based architect Randall Stofft to design the home’s incredible architecture and British designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard to do up the interiors with his usual flamboyance and flair. The lavishly appointed home was completed in 2008 after a strenuous five-year build, resulting in a 23,136-square-foot megamansion with nine bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, plus seven lavish powder rooms, spread across three levels. A secondary residence with three bedrooms and three bathrooms in about 2,700 square feet provides plenty of space and privacy for guests or staff.
