In Florida, Dr. Krishna Tripuraneni's 'Nirvana' Estate Hits the Market For Rs.158 crores

A mansion on South Florida’s Manalapan peninsula that was blessed by Buddhist monks from Thailand has just come onto the market with a price tag of $25 million i.e Rs.158 crores.

The 16,087-square-foot ‘Nirvana’ lies on an acre-and-a-half of oceanfront property in Palm Beach County, with the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Lake Worth Inlet to the west. The home features a Zen garden, as well as a Buddhist prayer room, and is being marketed as a spiritual space for a sophisticated buyer.

“The family gave it the name, it’s not a marketing ploy,” says Senada Adzem, director of luxury sales at Douglas Elliman, who has the listing. “They had monks flown in to bless the home after they completed it. The marking of the blessing is on every door in the house. It’s very, very spiritual.”

But the home is not for minimalists looking to flee from luxury. It boasts six bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, a full spa with a steam room and a sauna. There is a home theater, a dance club, a library, gym, and tennis court. The property also contains an infinity-edge pool, Jacuzzi, tiki hut and outdoor bar, as well as a private dock to accommodate a yacht of up to 130 feet in length.

The owners, Dr. Krishna Tripuraneni, a gastroenterologist, and his wife Nirmala Tripuraneni, are selling the home because their son, Venkat, is headed to Bollywood, and the parents wish to spend more time there, Adzem said. Reached at the home, Venkat Tripuraneni said he has the lead role in a Bollywood film that has not yet been named.

Venkat Tripuraneni described the home’s dance club, which has lighted flooring, and explained that it was designed by a set designer for the film Saturday Night Fever with John Travolta. “We have a big poster signed by him in that area, right next to the dance floor. You can actually see the setting and it very much resembles what we have. It smokes up and has lasers,” Tripuraneni said.
