Ideally situated on 100 feet of Everglades Island waterfront, facing the lagoon and golf course, this Mediterranean-inspired estate exemplifies the essence, the elegance of true Palm Beach living.

Situated on a 16,000 square foot waterfront lot (3/8 acre +/-), looking east across the lagoon, it is meticulously landscaped with immaculate privacy hedges and mature majestic palms.
Guests arrive at a circular brick paver motorcourt and proceed past cast stone columns. They are welcomed through double glass and scrolled wrought iron doors into a dramatic foyer with limestone tile flooring, Macedonian columns and detailed tray ceiling. The foyer looks through the opulent 2-story living room, with its cast stone fireplace and graceful wrought iron/stone circular staircase, past multiple faux-painted cast stone arches and a window wall with French doors to the 20'x40' resort-style heated pool with raised deck spa, tropical lagoon, and pristine golf course beyond.
This residence was skillfully designed to take advantage of the natural beauty of the lagoon and protected mangrove island which can be seen from every major room, including the formal dining room, the gourmet chef?s kitchen open to the spacious family room, and especially the lavish secluded master suite with its private view to an idyllic Palm Beach lifestyle.
