This three-story mansion in the Estate Section was designed by renowned architect Maurice Fatio and built during Palm Beach's opulent era of the 1920s. A recent restoration of the residence, which occupies more than 12,000 square feet on nearly an acre of property, preserved the elegance of the Mediterranean architecture while providing today's comforts, including a five-car garage. A first floor master suite opens to a tropical courtyard and fountain, while five guest rooms occupy the second and third stories. A separate pool house also serves as additional guest accommodations with a living room, bedroom, bath and kitchen. This is a home for the ages, with gracious formal rooms, spacious living areas, and magical pool and gardens.

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.
