Taking its place among the Gold Coast’s great estates, this stunning masterpiece has just been completed on one of South Florida’s finest Intracoastal point properties. Commanding more than two prime lots in The Sanctuary, this trophy point paradise basks in an island ambience enveloped with an incomparable 410 +/- feet of deepwater shoreline offering substantial dockage for the yachting enthusiast.

A majestic presence with 23,800 +/- total square feet, the seven-bedroom villa is a crowning achievement by Dan E. Swanson of Palm Beach’s renowned Addison Development with interior finishes by award-winning Marc-Michaels Interior Design. While monumental in its scale, this is an eminently livable and inviting residence replete with Old World charm in the Palm Beach tradition of Addison Mizner. Every detail is executed with artistry and painstaking care, and every state-of-the-art luxury meets the most demanding requirements. Exceptionally notable are the grand salon, richly paneled English pub room, sumptuous master retreat, private guest house, and formal gardens with an opulent resort-style pool, the centerpiece for waterfront entertaining in unforgettable splendor with boundless views down the Intracoastal Waterway.

Flawless in every aspect, this singular estate achieves the pinnacle of elegance, luxury, privacy, and prestige. Rarely is a property of such superlative distinction presented for sale.
