Back in May The Coastal Star announced that Manalapan’s Gemini, the Ziff family’s 15.65-acre compound at 2000 S. Ocean, was on the market for $195 million.
    Update: On Jan. 28, the property hit the Multiple Listing Service. Premier Estate Properties agents Carmen D’Angelo, Gerald Liguori and Joseph Liguori have the listing. The price remains at $195 million.
    According to the listing, the walled compound and botanical oasis, with 1,200 feet on the ocean and 1,300 feet on the Intracoastal Waterway, comprises a 12-bedroom main residence, two four-bedroom beachside cottages, the seven-bedroom Mango House, the manager’s house with four apartments, and manager’s offices.
    This adds up to 84,988 square feet, 33 bedrooms, 34 baths and 13 powder rooms.
    The 62,220-square-foot main residence with loggias, open stairways and balconies, has wings on both sides of South Ocean, joined by a wide gallery under the road twinning the two sides, hence the estate’s name, “Gemini.”  
    The original 1940s home was designed by architect Marion Sims Wyeth for the Lambert pharmaceutical family and later became the winter retreat of Loel and Gloria Guinness.
    Current owners, with architect Edson E. Dailey, completed a reconstruction and expansion in 2003.  
Site details include botanical gardens with 1,500 species of tropical trees and plants, a golf practice area, dock and pier on the Intracoastal, freshwater pond and bird sanctuary, and sports complex with a regulation tennis court, half basketball court, playground, miniature golf course and butterfly garden with a large-scale model train.
