Celebrating the luxury of oceanfront living, this one-of-a-kind estate highlights a phenomenal sky deck for outdoor entertaining, with second oceanside pool.
One of the most spectacular oceanfront estates in Highland Beach brings dreams to life in a sublime beachscape, capturing the aquatic splendor from high above lush dunes, beyond which the waves caress sugar sands.

With no expense spared, this is an impressive abode for entertaining, complete with a showroom-style six-bay garage, lavish club room, theater room, and masterpiece kitchen featured in the Spring 2009 issue of “Florida Table” magazine. Not only is there a magnificent lagoon-style pool on the beachside patio, but also an infinity pool highlighting the sensational roof-top entertainment space – itself a resort-like paradise with indoor/outdoor kitchens, rotunda pub, and boundless ocean views. Almost impossibly beautiful, and without compare, this world-class showplace offers the ultimate escape to oceanfront serenity and luxury.

First Floor: At the monumental entry with baronial gates, iron-filigreed glass doors prelude the open foyer with grand staircase.
