"Darling it's better down where it's wetter"

Fancy a scuba diving experience without getting wet and having your ears suffer due to the water pressure (the latter one is my case)? Well, a Florida mansion brings you nearly the same experience while still having all the luxuries that you can get off water. Florida real estate artist Frank McKinney, known for his oceanfront artistry, decided to name the 1.6 +/- acre eco-friendly mansion "Acqua Liana" which means "water flower" in Tahitian and Fijian.

Located in Palm Beach county, Manalapan beach, Acqua Liana is blessed with a "water floor" with a Lotus garden illuminated underneath the glass, 7 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, 2 glass elevators, 2 laundry rooms, a glass wine cellar, an oceanfront grand salon that opens to the beach, a dining room that opens to the pool, swimmable water gardens, a classical lounge and lap pool, a waterfall spa w/ fire feature, and a yacht dockage. The list is much longer. And the visual is breathtaking.

It's almost like a tiny little village of its own!

And guess what? even pop corns can still fit in the big picture. The home also features almost a more personalized version of AMC movie theater in it. Although the pop corns they have might be organic, whole wheat, locally grown, or infused with vitamin boosters? I don't know.

The house is up for grabs for $29,000,000 USD.
It is obvious that my problem is highly interconnected with the last statement.
