Oracle Corp. co-founder Larry Ellison has listed his beachfront property in North Palm Beach for $145 million.
The 8.5-acre estate including dune and beach areas boasts 562 feet of ocean frontage and is located in the tony neighborhood of Seminole Landing.

Ellison’s move comes just over a year after buying the property for $80 million and about two months after buying a separate $173 million estate in nearby Manalapan. tech entrepreneur Jim Clark.
Adam McPherson, Chris Leavitt and Ashley McIntosh of Douglas Elliman’s Leavitt/McIntosh team represent the property, while Farman acts as strategic marketing advisor.
