Details include Terracotta tile floors, nickel hardware plumbing fixtures, Waterworks tiled bathrooms with Thasos marble countertops. Throughout the main floor lushly landscaped atriums bring light to each of the 4 first-floor en-suite bedrooms and the hallways transversing the house. Each suite is isolated from the others offering ultimate privacy. The upstairs master suite features 17' ceilings, more than ample separate dressing rooms, generous closets and fabulous baths, with a balcony running the width of the house overlooking the great Banyan tree. Off the living room and dining room is the grand outdoor loggia which faces the pool, dock and Intracoastal. The biggest challenge living in this unique home will be deciding where to entertain your guests. This is real Palm Beach living ~ tropical, & casual, yet elegantly graceful.

According to early settler accounts, Palm Beach received its name from the shipwreck of the "Providencia."
The ship washed ashore in January of 1878 with a cargo of cocoanuts bound from Havana to Barcelona. Early settlers lost no time salvaging and planting the cocoanuts, which were not native to South Florida, hoping to launch the area into the commercial cocoanut industry. But this lush barrier island, 16 miles long and located 65 miles north of Miami, was destined for much bigger things. Its close proximity to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream produced a hothouse environment where the crème de la crème would flourish.
