Located on a nicely elevated lot on an exclusive private street one block from Worth Avenue, this historic property is an architectural gem that will more clearly sparkle in loving hands.


Beautifully conceived in 1924 by Marion Sims Wyeth, the noted American architect who designed Mar-a-Lago, this 4-level, 6-bedroom, 5.1 bath Mediterranean Revival encompasses 7,066+/- total square feet and includes many original features and rooms.

Built on a nicely elevated 12,600+/- square foot lot on a private one-way street developed in 1921, a block south of Worth Avenue, this property was the second to be built on this exclusive road. In the late 1940?s the estate was partitioned into two villas, this one being the more architecturally significant with its asymmetrical facade, extraordinary interior and exterior stonework including a massive drawing room fireplace, its one-bedroom/one-bath tower with views of Everglades Golf course and the ocean, its mahogany portcullis entry to an unexpected basement level, and its original Mizner tiled fountain in the enclosed courtyard accessible from arched French doors in the loggia. 



Golfview Road, Palm Beach, Florida. This eastbound, one-way, private street is just one block south of, and only accessible from, famed Worth Avenue. It is also two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and the public beach. As such, it is in close proximity to the Michelin star dining and world-class designer shopping found along Worth Avenue, or mid-town at The Royal Poinciana Plaza. Award-winning golf and tennis facilities abound at nearby private clubs. Social events occur at The Breakers and Mar-a-Lago, the Flagler Art Museum and Four Arts Gardens. Private banking institutions abound along Royal Palm Way. Private and commercial air service is available at the Palm Beach International Airport, barely 15+/- minutes away.



Situated on a nicely elevated property comprising over a quarter acre, this residence is the last one at the west end of Golfview Road and features a mature tropical landscape that includes privacy hedges and graceful palms lovingly maintained by the same owner for 72 years. The rear of the residence includes an expansive enclosed courtyard surrounding an original Mizner tiled fountain, as well as a single garage with exterior parking for four additional cars.



This landmarked residence comprises 6 bedrooms and 5.1 baths spread over four levels in a total of 7,066+/- square feet. Much of it is unified by octagonal terra cotta tile floors and many major rooms enjoy scenic golf course views.

First Floor: Guests are welcomed through ornate double doors into a foyer with original octagonal terra cotta tile floor that leads to the loggia and out to the enclosed courtyard. To the left of the foyer is the powder room. The curved stone staircase with wrought iron railing leads from the foyer up to a drawing room (main living area) with Mizner Cuban black tile terra cotta floor, a massive stone fireplace, patterned beam ceiling, and wooden doors that replicate the original entry doors. Beyond the drawing room are the kitchen, atrium, formal dining room and garage.

Second Floor: The stone staircase leads up to a large gallery ideal for displaying works of art. The secluded master suite features an elaborate 18' tray ceiling, four floor-to-ceiling French doors, a large walk-in closet, elegantly tiled master bath with jetted tub, and stone terrace with Juliet balcony. An office separates this generous master suite from the three guestrooms with ensuite baths that surround the staircase and gallery.

Third Floor: An expansive tower bedroom with hardwood floors features large arched windows on three sides, providing views to the east, south and west, and includes a full ensuite bath and walk-in closet.

Lower Level: This basement level, unusual in Palm Beach architecture, is accessed from the foyer through the mahogany portcullis in the loggia with stairs that wind down, or from the kitchen area stairs to the garage. It includes a bedroom, full bath, a sitting room, walk-in closet and a laundry room complete with a commercial press.

Special features include: Marion Sims Wyeth landmarked 4-level design on an exclusive one-way street, in the Estate Section, only accessible from Worth Avenue (one block north); curved stone staircase with wrought iron railing in the loggia; one bedroom/one bath tower with views of Everglades Golf Course and the ocean; portcullis access to lower level; original Mizner tiled courtyard fountain; original Mizner Cuban black tile terra cotta drawing room floor.
