Gemini, Florida’s most expensive home for sale, has been reduced by $30 million, per The Wall Street Journal, but still remains the priciest on the market in the sunshine state with an ask of $165 million.

The sprawling Manalapan compound, which encompasses over 15 lush acres sandwiched between the Intracoastal and the Atlantic Ocean, listed for a jarring $195 million in Spring 2015. It boasts over 2,500 square feet of water frontage, including 1,200 feet along the beach and 1,300 feet along Lake Worth.

Gemini is still among the priciest three homes for sale in the United States.

The sensational estate of the late publishing magnate William B. Ziff Jr. has a jaw-dropping array of features, including over 30 bedrooms and nearly 50 bathrooms. There’s also a PGA standard golf practice area, extensive botanical gardens with nearly 1,500 tropical species, a tennis court, basketball court, miniature golf course, and Robinson Crusoe-style tree house.

Ziff passed away in 2006, about a dozen years after selling the publishing arm of Ziff-Davis for $1.4 billion, per Business Insider. The next priciest Florida home for sale is the $137 million Il Palmetto, which is located in Palm Beach.
