The luxurious pool area is a serious perk.

One of America's most expensive mega-mansions just got a major discount.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Gemini, a 33-bedroom compound on a private barrier island in Manalapan, Florida, just got a $30 million price chop. That brings its listing price down to $165 million from $195 million.

The 16-acre estate is the property of the billionaire family of deceased publisher William B. Ziff, Jr. Ziff passed away in 2006. He had developed a successful empire of tech-focused magazines, including titles like Car and Driver and PC Magazine. The family sold the publishing arm of Ziff-Davis for $1.4 billion in 1994.

The massive property is decked out with all of the perks that you'd expect for the astronomical price tag. It's bordered on both sides by private beaches and its own pier. On top of that, there's a golf course, pool, tennis court, and basketball court.

Gemini is now listed with Todd Peter and Cristina Condon of Sotheby's International Realty. Let's take a look around.
