Fans of Rush Limbaugh knew that the talk show icon loved Palm Beach, Florida. He would high-tail out of New York on weekends for years to enjoy the Florida sunshine and then eventually broadcast his show from there.
In 1998, he purchased a 24,000 square-foot main house on North Ocean Boulevard for $3.9 million. He eventually bought up four neighboring properties to create a sprawling estate of 2.7 acres, where he created an empire. Now, his widow Kathryn is trying to sell it for a whopping asking price between $150 million and $175 million.
You better be a fan of Rush and his unique decorating style if you are interested in buying it because it has some unique finishings. There is a salon in the style of the Palace of Versailles. Keeping the French theme going, rush modeled the main guest suite after the Presidential Suite of Hotel George V in Paris.
A report in the Wall Street Journal says whoever buys the compound might rip it all down and start over with a more modern home.
Rush’s widow, Kathryn, was his fourth wife, and they have no children together. The property is owned by a trust connected to Kathryn.
Limbaugh died in 2021 with a net worth hovering around $600 million. It was at this home that he built a radio studio that allowed him to broadcast his show from there for the final two decades of his career.
