Inspired by the distinctive residences of Addison Mizner — whose lavish Mediterranean Revival architectural designs were preferred by the well-heeled denizens of Palm Beach in the early 20th century — this impressive Venetian-style villa epitomizes the splendor and grace of that celebrated resort town.


Located in a prestigious area of particularly refined estates near Worth Avenue, the home offers a well-proportioned floor plan of approximately 12,600 square feet, which encompasses eight bedrooms and eight and one-half baths, including staff quarters and charming guest cabaña.

Floor-to-ceiling glass doors offer a verdant view. Hand-painted ceiling accents, ornamental iron doors, and a mirror that reflects candlelight add to the magic of the dining room, which seats up to 22 guests.


The colorful kitchen boasts an oversized island, a six-burner stainless-steel professional-grade range with a griddle and an Italianate tile backsplash, abundant handsomely finished wood cabinetry, stone tile floors, and warmly hued walls.


Sunlight pours into the intimate east-facing breakfast room, where the dining table is nestled in a bay window.


Bedrooms are classically and comfortably appointed, with hardwood floors, timeless moldings, plentiful windows, and opulent en suite baths with oversized mirrors and liberal use of elegant stone.

On the second level, an airy loggia offers a relaxing view into lush palm treetops. Below, loggias are garlanded with bougainvillea and illuminated at night by Old World lanterns.


They surround the alluring Roman-Grecian swimming pool, which is enveloped by a stone terrace with an Italianate fountain — among the 3,800 square feet of outdoor entertaining space the home affords.
