A cul-de-sac lot along the Intracoastal Waterway prompted Delray Beach architect Jeffrey Silbertstein to design this Lighthouse Point house in the shape of a slice of pie. The two-story glass triangle is designed to maximize the scenic vantage point. Adjacent to the triangle is a square portion of the house, where guest bedrooms are located. Between the triangle and square segments of the 6,000-sq.-ft. home is a V-shaped glass-enclosed stairway that rises above the home’s roofline, providing a sculptural element that glows at night. Other highlights include a pool that stretches 75 feet and a canal-like water feature that follows the line of the house — indoors and out — from front entry through the stairway area toward the waterway.

Ballot Box

Jeb Bush has said he'd accept tax increases as long as they are paired with federal spending cuts. This stance runs counter to conservatives who oppose tax hikes. Is Bush right?

  • Yes - raising taxes should be considered
  • No - there's enough money, need to manage it better
