Il Palmetto, the Palm Beach, Florida home has been listed through Sotheby's International Realty, by Jim Clarke, co-founder of Netscape Communications, and his Australian former-model wife Kristy Hinze.

Their waterfront estate in Palm Beach, Florida is on the market for $US137 million ($181 million).

The 1930s Italian renaissance-style mansion was designed by the architect Maurice Fatio for the industrialist Joseph Widener.

After Clark bought it in 1999, he spent four years renovating.

The six-bedroom, 5606-square-metre home is now a series of pavilions connected by cloisters on eight hectares, with a separate beach house with infinity pool and a tunnel under the South Ocean Boulevard leading to it, so guests get to the beach without having to cross the road.

Clarke, a keen yachtsman, married Hinze in 2009.

They sold their Point Piper waterfront apartment in the Sienna block for more than $8 million earlier in the year.
