The style: pure Palm Beach. The setting: sun-soaked Siesta Key. This flawlessly accomplished waterfront estate pays homage to a bygone age of beauty, originality, artistry and craftsmanship. Poised on the protected deep boating waters of Cocoanut Bayou with a private dock and exclusive beach access, this grandly scaled residence presents 7003 square feet of living environments for luxe living and remarkable entertaining. The appealing layout is a testament to carefully curated opulence, with imported woods, immense hand-carved travertine, barrel vaulted ceilings, ethereal arched windows and antique lighting that once graced the great estates of Palm Beach. Featured spaces include a library, formal dining room, indulgently comfortable family room and an epicureâ€™s kitchen. A second level encompasses gracious bedroom suites, including the master retreat which exudes an air of Parisian glamour. Luminous natural light cascades throughout and imparts a radiant glow which can only be described as heavenly. French doors open to the alluring loggia imbued with robin egg blue & overlooking the brilliance of the Bayou, the seductive swimming pool and private dock moments from the Intracoastal. A 12-car garage accommodates the luxury automobile collection.
