Piano man Billy Joel has listed his ocean-to-lake estate at 1110 S. Ocean Blvd., Manalapan, for $64.9 million. Joel, using an ownership company, bought the compound in 2015 for $22.1 million from Texas banking businessman Donald A. Adam.
Built in 2010, the nine-bedroom, 20,838-square-foot house sits on 1.6 acres with about 150 feet of frontage on the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway.
The compound includes a guest house and staff house.
The property went on the market in November. Details in the main house include a theater room, a pub room and bar, paneled library, 12-plus-car garage and wine cellar with a wet bar and tasting table. Broker Christian Angle of Christian Angle Real Estate holds the listing.

Mark Sherman’s estate at 1140 S. Ocean Blvd., Manalapan, was listed for $59 million with Douglas Elliman agents Pier Paolo Visconti and Claudia Llanes.
Sherman, CEO of Green Wave Electronics in Atlanta, with his ex-wife, Isabella Sherman, paid $8 million for the house in December 2000.
The $59 million price tag will be for a finished renovation that has been underway on and off since 2017 with a few permit extensions. According to Visconti, the renovations are expected to be completed in 14 to 16 months.
When finished, the residence, on 1.61 acres with 150 feet of waterfront on the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway, will have seven bedrooms and 12,420 square feet. Features will include a gym, library, home theater, a game room, wine storage for 1,000 bottles, and a garage that can be configured to accommodate 12 cars.
Prospective buyers have other purchase options, said Visconti. “If the buyer wants to buy it as is, obviously the price will be lower. Another possibility, we just made plans to build a 3,500-square-foot guest house on the property, and for that, the price would be adjusted as well,” Visconti said.

James and Kimberly Caccavo made two moves in the local real estate market in 2022. The more recent focuses on a Manalapan spec house, 71 Curlew Road, which they bought for $10.5 million in a deal recorded Nov. 30.  
The seller was listed as an LLC named for the address managed by Stephen Varga of Varga Homes, who bought the half-acre property, with 178 feet of water frontage, for $1.9 million in 2020. Varga tore down the house and built a 10,500-square-foot home, which was completed in 2022.
Nick Malinosky and Randy Ely of Douglas Elliman represented both the buyer and the seller.
In June, the Caccavos flipped an oceanfront Gulf Stream estate at 3565 N. Ocean Blvd. to James and Estee Sausville for $27.5 million, almost double what they bought it for the year prior.
James Caccavo is the founder and managing general partner of the California-based Steelpoint Capital Partners, a private equity firm. Kimberly Caccavo is founder of Face Your Grace, a motivational e-learning platform.

Selkirk Sport, an Idaho manufacturer of pickleball paddles and accessories, made an endorsement deal in November with James Ignatowich, 22, of Delray Beach.
Ignatowich is a newcomer to pickleball after playing tennis in the junior ranks and at Vanderbilt University.
10925289862?profile=RESIZE_180x180He competed on Major League Pickleball’s Team Ranchers in 2022 and has won several pro medals, including the gold in men’s singles at the Beer City Open in July in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
He defeated Zane Navratil, 14-12, 12-10, for the championship after beating JW Johnson, Federico Staksrud and Navratil on his way to the final.
Then in August in Newport Beach, California, his Team Ranchers won the league championships, defeating BLQK, 3-0, and Ignatowich walked away with $25,000.
Ignatowich, now a senior at Vanderbilt, said he switched from tennis to pickleball because “it’s way more fun, and it’s way easier to get started playing and you can get to the top really quickly. I am already one of the top 10 players in the world.”  
When he’s home from college, he practices at Caloosa Park in Boynton Beach.
As one of Selkirk Sport’s lineup of brand ambassadors, he will be equipped with Selkirk’s paddles and outfitted in branded Selkirk Sport apparel.
His two favorite paddles are the Vanguard Power Air Invikta and the Project 002 Invikta. “They provide a great amount of power and spin,” he said.
Of interest to all those pickleball enthusiasts out there, he’s posting tips and instructional videos on his Instagram, @jamesignatowich.

For people who have muscle cars and like showing them off, listen up and sign up.
Stingrays, Barracudas and other 1950s through 1970s muscle cars will be at Delray Beach’s Old School Square on March 4 at the Muscle On the Beach car show.
This benefit for the Sandoway Discovery Center will be hosted by Mike Brewer of the Discovery/Motor Trend TV series Wheeler Dealers.
“A few years ago, we had an idea to raise money for the Sandoway Discovery Center’s new stingray garden by gathering another kind of stingray — Chevrolet Corvettes,” said George Walden, who is volunteer co-producer of the event with fellow classic car buff Jack Barrette.
“Now we’ve got the best examples of American muscle cars coming to downtown Delray,” said Alex Ridley, president of Sandoway Discovery Center’s board of directors. “The children of Palm Beach County need fun, interactive educational opportunities now more than ever — this event is a great opportunity for the community to support our work, and a lot of fun for attendees and volunteers.”
For people who want to show their muscle car/truck/hot rod, or to be a sponsor or vendor, call 617-312-4701 or email Barrette at info@muscleonthebeach.com.
