    Clark’s mansion is also known as ‘Il Palmetto’. It is a 1930 design by renowned Palm Beach architect Maurice Fatio. Photos of the interior can be seen in the coffee table book ‘Palm Beach Houses’ by Shirley Johnston.

    As for Katz’s estate, shortly before Katz put his offer in, Michael Jordan had been seen looking at it. Jordan has since purchased two adjoining lots to build his own custom home in the Bear’s Club in Jupiter.
