Designed by architect Maurice Fatio, he elevated the main floor of this multi-level house and added oversized windows to have the best possible views of Lake Worth’s waterfront. In 1939, John L. Volk added the twin piers of the front gate and second-story addition. Floors are wood and marble, ceilings are high. Rooms have black-and-white color scheme with custom Sherle Wagner fixtures. The entrance room has an inlaid starburst in the foyer. Clear glass retro-style doorknobs and attractive nickel and stainless hardware are included in the house. One can recall an elegant 1930’s era Hollywood set when looking at the interiors. There is a gentleman’s dressing room in the master suite that has a fireplace and bathroom. The master bedroom has water views. With 5 bedrooms and 7 baths and staff quarters, there is a 3-car garage, guest cottage and 167 feet of waterfront. The house was landmarked by the Town of Palm Beach in 1992. It has a U-shaped floor plan built around a central patio. The style is sometimes referred to as Art Moderne or Art Deco, but the original architecture included a Mediterranean-style Spanish tile roof, classic pilasters around the loggia and a modern floor-to-ceiling bow window in the salon, according to a Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach’s landmark-designation report. The report also mentions a wrought iron railing with starfish design. Price is $19.75MM. May I show you this beautiful historic home, with a lavish lifestyle? Call Marilyn at 561-988-0070.
