Here's what they suggest:

Here's the write-up, thanks to reader Kevin for who was hunting for a third home in Hobe Sound. It sounds like "such a cool hang":
As the wrought-iron gate glides open, a striking drive lined with majestic Florida palms draws your eye to this elegant home you will want to call your own. Welcome to Tranquility, a peaceful eight-acre estate with more than 16,000 square feet of air-conditioned space on Jupiter Island in Hobe Sound, Florida. The main house overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway with 370 feet of waterfront, and a 140-foot dock that can accommodate a large yacht with a lift for a smaller vessel. A formal living and dining room flows to the Florida room, family room, wine room, library and den. The house dates to 1902, with its original cellar – including climate-controlled storage for 2,500 bottles – and all its charm intact. The flooring is vintage Dade County pine. Beautifully renovated in 1985, with additions in 1995 and library overlooking the Intracoastal added in 1999, main house now features a combined media room/game room and a gourmet kitchen with appliances by Wolf, Miele, Traulsen, Subzero and Bosch. The property includes 172 feet of glorious private oceanfront. Two-bedroom, two-bath guesthouse on the shores of the Atlantic features living room, dining room, kitchen, gas fireplace, oak beams and hardwood floors. An open porch offers panoramic ocean views and lets you see where Bill Clinton, uh, fell and hurt his knee.
Oops, don't know how that last part got in there.
Grill house with adjacent tennis court and 50-foot pool is an idyllic setting for outdoor entertaining with rotisserie, full sink, dishwasher, icemaker, microwave, television and surround sound stereo. Estate includes a total of nine bedrooms, 11 full baths and three half baths in six structures. Coach house includes a four-car garage down, with three bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, and living room up. Carriage house includes a six-car garage down, with gym, bath and steam room, reception area, boardroom, and two offices up. Boat shed will hold seven vehicles, or any combination of car and boat. There is garage space for 17 cars in all. It is aptly named Tranquility, but it is unequivocally paradise found.
Thankfully I only have 16 cars, so it's going to work.
