2817 North Ocean Boulevard | Gulf Stream, FL | Oceanfront Estate | $17.995 Million USD

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Steeped in Gulf Stream's rich history and Old Florida beauty, this rare oceanfront compound dates from 1926, soon after the opening of the Gulf Stream Golf Club, designed by Palm Beach society architect Addison Mizner, and just before the opening of the Gulf Stream Polo Club - both of which helped establish this then-new community as an exclusive winter resort. Enchantingly nestled by the dunes on 200± feet of oceanfront, right across from the Gulf Stream Golf Club, this private paradise was originally designed by Howard Brougham Major, a prominent New York architect who had joined Mizner's office, and was built for Howard Whitney.

A painstaking, over-three-year restoration bringing new life to this historic jewel was completed by Tim Givens Building and Remodeling in 2009 under the direction of Bridges, Marsh & Associates, a noted Palm Beach architectural firm which was also the renovation architect for Palm Beach's legendary Worth Avenue. Select finishes and unique elements, both old and new, were sourced by the owner from all over the world, resulting in a characteristic blend of timeless beauty and luxury.

Calling to mind a picturesque Spanish village with its architectural tapestry interweaving romantic courtyards and gardens, the evocatively named "Viento y Mar" ("Wind of the Sea") captures the delightful sea breeze in airy plan that also gives exquisite views from everywhere. The gated drive meanders past the gatehouse and garden house to the main residence of the six-bedroom compound set off by charming bell towers and trickling fountains.< /p>

Highlights of the understatedly elegant residence include the magnificent antique French and Cuban architectural elements in the main rooms, which radiate off a gallery-framed central courtyard, leading to another stunning courtyard around the oceanside pool. An artful transformation of an historic property for unparalleled luxury living, this breathtaking compound endures as one of Gulf Stream's largest and most prestigious estates.
