Designed and built to the highest standards, this glamorous palazzo on the Intracoastal Waterway features beautiful indoor/outdoor living spaces and also enjoys deeded beach access.

Standing as a glamorous palazzo on a wide stretch of sparkling waters, this elegant estate fronts 118 +/- feet on the Intracoastal Waterway in prestigious Highland Beach, a short stroll from deeded access to the sandy ocean beach that spans this scenic stretch of the barrier island.  Crafted with a level of quality which is second to none, the four-bedroom residence was built by the boutique firm J.H. Norman Construction and has been maintained with impeccable care ever since.  Privacy hedges and statuesque palms add to the impressive presentation of this stately villa designed by Brenner Architecture Group, an award-winning South Florida firm.

Inside, next to the grand staircase, the two-story foyer and vaulted gallery together create an elegant front-to-back reception room, perfect for entertaining, leading to the waterfront loggia and exquisite pool terrace in a garden oasis giving an alluring point of view on the waterway, passing yachts and boats, and sunset.  French doors also open outside from the soaring front-to-back great room and the kitchen's adjoining morning room which leads out by an inviting pergola equipped with a grilling station that complements the main summer kitchen of the alfresco living areas.  A handsome work space, the custom-fitted library has its own view of the water and provides a full bath that doubles as the cabana bath.  Upstairs, the grand waterfront master suite lends a feeling of serenity, looking out over the lush palm trees toward the Intracoastal, and offers the luxury of two separate baths.  Complete with a lift-equipped boat dock plus conveniences including impact glass, a generator, and an elevator, this beautiful estate home offers Highland Beach living at its finest.

This glamorous palazzo fronts 118 +/- feet on the Intracoastal Waterway in the Byrd Beach estate section, where deeded beach access is just a short stroll away.  Manicured landscaping with lush gardens beautifies the palm-lined motor court and the waterfront pool terrace which stretches to the extended dock with 25,000 +/- pound boat lift.  Centered on an exquisite pool with spillover spa, sun shelf, and water feature, this view-filled outdoor entertainment space is served by a summer kitchen on the loggia, plus another grilling station on the pergola-covered terrace.


Exceptional design and workmanship hallmark the total of 6,221 +/-  square feet which includes four bedrooms, six and a-half baths, upstairs/downstairs laundry rooms, an elevator, a full generator, and three-bay garage.  Chiseled limestone floors, elaborate trimwork, and impact-rated glass are featured finishes.

First Floor:  Entered through stately iron-filigreed glass doors, the reception area flows from the grand two-story foyer with rotunda-style staircase into the graceful vaulted gallery which is served by a wet bar and opens its doors to the waterfront loggia.  On one side of the gallery, the double-height front-to-back great room opens to the waterfront terrace from its multiple seating spaces - one by the palatial fireplace and another by the built-in media center.  Across the gallery, the elegant open dining room overlooks the front garden and is served by a convenient butler's pantry that leads into the gourmet kitchen outfitted with custom cabinetry, granite counters, and high-end appliances including a professional-style Wolf gas range and a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer.  Waterfront views stretch from the kitchen into the open morning room, an inviting casual dining space that connects to the pergola-covered terrace.  Entered through French doors in the gallery, the waterfront office/library is handsomely finished with hardwood paneling and built-ins including bookcases, cabinets, and a desk.  The full cabana bath adjoins this room, while the powder room is off the foyer.

Second Floor:  Overlooking the foyer and spiraling staircase, the loft-style upper gallery has the convenience of a morning bar.  Entered through a private vestibule with its own morning bar, the expansive master suite is designed for privacy and comfortable luxury.  Palm-framed water views are captured from the suite's bedroom, sitting area, private balcony, and one of the two custom-finished baths, both with companion wardrobe rooms.  Facing the front garden, the other master bath features a jetted tub, walk-in shower, and separate water closet.  Two more bedroom suites open to Juliet balconies above the waterfront terrace.  Another bedroom suite currently serves as a sitting room/den.
