Heralded since the early 20th century as a tropical paradise, Palm Beach has long been a destination for luxurious coastal living with a singular architectural style—clear Mediterranean inspiration and a dedication to patios, loggias, lawns, and balconies that link interiors with surroundings. Many of the hallmarks of an iconic Palm Beach haven are on full display at this 1930 estate, including a barrel-tile roof, balconies and stairways with decorative iron railings, sunset-hued stonework, Old World terra-cotta tile, French doors, ornate columns and fireplaces, and ceilings with beams and stenciled pecky cypress.

Introduced by a classic paver motor court and a façade cloaked in brilliant thriving bougainvillea, the 8,371-square-foot residence is filled with a soothing light, displays an exceptional attention to detail, and epitomizes the distinctive style of the home’s celebrated location.

Perfectly suited for entertaining, it includes a formal living room with a stately stone fireplace and an eye-catching coffered ceiling with delicate painted detailing, a casual living room ringed with arched French doors, a spacious formal dining room opening to a loggia, a true cook’s kitchen that is both colorful and expertly equipped with professional-grade stainless-steel appliances, a media room with a beamed ceiling and arched French doors, and seven peaceful bedrooms, including a generous upper-level primary bedroom with a balcony and an en suite bath offering a shower and a soaking tub.

The expansive breezy loggia wraps around the home, offering multiple sitting areas, an embellished oversized fireplace, two grills, regal columns, and graceful arches. Nearly every vantage point overlooks a property replete with tropical color: a gorgeous grassy lawn, meticulously manicured landscaping, a sculpture garden, and a cooling 50-foot swimming pool—all surrounded by towering palm trees, wild irises, other vibrant flora, and tall hedges offering coveted privacy.

The home’s location—in the geographical heart of Palm Beach—is blocks from the water in either direction and enjoys easy access to golf, tennis, boating, shopping, fine dining, and, naturally, the sunny sandy beaches that have attracted the jet set and snowbirds for more than a century.
