Although this estate is no longer here today, it is still a very interesting residence to look at. Once owned by Coca-Cola heir Michael Bird, this 38,000 square foot mediterranean mansion was one of a kind. Originally designed by Mark Timothy, the property was on about 2 1/2 acres and had 360 feet of oceanfront with panoramic views of the ocean. The house was eventually demolished and replaced with 3 smaller mansions. Since the house would be demolished anyway, it was used as the set of the movie Bad Boys 2 where they imitated an explosion. They added fake walls, lightweight windows, and other things for a controlled fire to simulate a realistic explosion. The property is located at 1105 S. Ocean Boulevard in Delray Beach, Florida.
