Hedged and walled for privacy, with a long paved iron-gated entry drive, this 100' x 195' square foot property includes a two-story, 4-bedroom, 4.1 bath traditional Palm Beach residence connected by a breezeway to a single-story 2-bedroom, 1-bath guesthouse with full cabana bath. These structures, set back from the street, together form a courtyard-like environ where relaxing under the covered pool loggia or covered pergola accessed from the kitchen & dining room add to the serene enjoyment of the heated resort-style pool and spa.
The main residence combines the formality of the living and dining rooms with an easy Palm Beach style most visible in the "Venetian room", where hand-painted murals and a multi-beam ceiling play against painted black diamonds on the white marble floor tiles, and French doors lead to the pool loggia. Every major room is designed to lead out of doors, to a pergola or loggia, balcony or sun terrace. The very nature of this architectural design is to incorporate the outdoors as a natural extension of indoor living space.
