In 1980, John Lennon and Yoko Ono bought an oceanfront home in Palm Beach for $725,000.

Later after John’s death, Yoko returned to Palm Beach to complete the renovations and sold it in 1986 for $3.15 million. The home was put on the market in May by its current owners for $47.5 million and already sold. The sale price has not yet been disclosed.
