      Artwork in Palm Beach Real Estate. This Art Moderne style home was designed and built by Harvard trained architect Murray Hoffman, as his personal residence. This 6 bedroom, 5 bath home was designed in the Art Moderne Style of architecture and has been landmarked by the Town of Palm Beach. 1498 has been occupied by the same owners for over 20 years and the house has been meticulously maintained and the architecture honored by the current owners. The house sits on 20,700 sq ft corner lot with deeded beach access across the street. This is a remarkable opportunity to own a unique piece of history in Palm Beach. It has many of the hallmark features of Art Moderne; the building is asymmetrical in plan and fenestration, it has a flat roof with coping at the roof line, and the flat siding delineated by horizontal lines and grooves give an overall horizontal feeling to the house. The integration of industrialized elements such as glass block, steel, and concrete, are exhibited by the entry foyer. The chevron pattern on the front door is original to the house. Art Moderne was a style of architecture that developed in the early 1930s and was a reaction to the ornamentation of Art Deco and a reflection of the influence of the industrial revolution and more austere economic times. Art Moderne became a simplification of the Art Deco Movement, rejecting the vertical lines and focus on the fauna and flora ornamentation in favor of the aerodynamic pure-line concept of motion and speed developed by industrial designers. Its hallmark was streamlining which emerged out of Art Deco, and emphasized curving forms, long horizontal lines and frequent nautical elements.

      Palm Beach

      Palm Beach

      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.
