The Palm Beach oceanfront compound where Jimmy Buffett long lived has been sold by Buffet's old neighbor Jon L. Stryker for $42.9 million to "seasonal Palm Beacher" and "English businessman" Peter Wood. Buffett lived in his 1920s Federal Style Marion Sims Wyeth designed house "for at least a decade" before selling it to Stryker for $18.5 million in 2010.
Now Wood plans to demolish Buffett's house at 540 S. Ocean Boulevard to build his dream home, while reselling Stryker's house at 61 Middle Road, another Marion Sims Wyeth which the architect designed as his own residence in the Mediterranean Revival style.

Ocean Boulevard which Stryker had used as a private garden.
