Who knew when I woke up this morning that a few hours later I was going to view George Hamilton's très chic apartment!
Yes, George Hamilton. The actor, is perhaps best known for his off-screen persona, and who has become something of a pop-icon for his eternal golden-brown tan
Also best known as:
Super-tanned actor and star of Dancing With the Stars 2
1960 All the Fine Young Cannibals
1971 Evel Knievel
1990 Godfather III
1997 Rough Riders
2004 Too cool for Christmas
I was at Waterview Towers this morning showing some apartments to my clients - an adorable couple from New York; and I could not help but ask the listing agent if it would be at all possible to view one particular apartment my clients had their sights on before making up their mind. That’s how I ended up in George Hamilton's place.
It was obviously under contract, and still is as I type, but if it falls through, there's a list of clients waiting in the wings.
Location: Downtown West Palm Beach
Building stats: 27 floors, 132 units; full service building, 24 hour security on-staff manager, valet parking, Olympic size pool, sun deck, saunas, hard tennis court, dockage and marina facilities
Home Stats: 1,797-square-foot compound, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms
The apartment is in front of the Palm Harbor Marina, with lush views of Lake Worth. George Hamilton purchased it in 2008 and completely renovated it from the floor up. It is sold fully furnished with professional decorator flair. Dazzling 36x36 white glass tiles throughout, a spacious living room, European style kitchen (Ikea) with built-in Miele coffeemaker and wine cooler, and ultra-modern baths (see for yourself!).
The three of us were very pleasantly surprised by the freshness, slickness and fluidity of Mr. Hamilton’s residence.
A half hour later, we sat on some outdoor chairs in front of some serious yachts, anchored on this state-of-the-art Marinetek concrete floating dock system, eating THE last freshly prepared sandwiches by the epicurean center (ec): it was the last day of season for the Marina ec. What a great day.
