Palm Beach homes: Volk house for sale, again

Posted On: 11-17-2018

After changing hands about two weeks ago for a recorded $4.22 million, the longtime home of the late Palm Beach architect John L. Volk zipped back onto the market — at just under $6.3 million, according to the Palm Beach Board of Realtors Multiple Listing Service.

Broker Christian J. Angle of Christian Angle Real Estate has the new listing for the landmarked Mediterranean-style house at 206 Phipps Plaza, which showed up in MLS late last week. Angle is representing the seller, a company co-managed by real estate investors Carlos G. Morrison of Palm Beach and his son, Thomas J. Morrison of West Palm Beach, records show. They bought the six-bedroom house using a limited liability company in a sale recorded Nov. 2.

The 1920s-era house has 10,017 square feet of living space, inside and out. Volk lived there until his death in 1984 with his late wife, Jane, who died in 2010. The house was then home to the Volks’ son, John K. Volk, and his late wife, Lory, until her death in April.

John K. Volk was represented in the recent sale by Corcoran Group agents Bruce Berry and Suzanne Frisbie, who has since joined Premier Estate Properties. They last had the house listed at $4.9 million after several price reductions.

The property is mostly residential, although part of the ground floor is leased by Smith Architectural Group.
