Situated on a hilltop, nestled among world-famous estates, this unique residence marries the privacy and charm of old Palm Beach with the finest lifestyle amenities.
Belford Shoumate, an influential architect in Palm Beach for over 50 years starting in the 1930's, was known for building in the Colonial, Bermuda and Art Deco styles.

Four sets of French doors open onto a tented-loggia with Italian limestone flooring and fireplace, perfect for large parties or intimate dining. Secluded behind tall ficus hedges, protected by impact-resistant windows and doors, this 4-bedroom, 4.1-bath residence features high-end finishes in the kitchen and bathrooms; crown molding and elegant detailing throughout; sisal, tile, bamboo and distressed hickory floors; and new state-of-the-art systems including CAT-5 wiring, Bang and Olufsen audio/video, Lutron controlled lighting, and a custom Thyssen Krupp elevator.
The sunny open kitchen features a center island for casual eat-in dining; Sub-Zero freezer, refrigerator and three wine chillers; two Bosch dishwashers; two prep sinks with disposals; a professional grade vented Thermador gas range; a separate pantry with wine storage; and an informal butler's pantry leading to the dining room.
