There is simply no greater pleasure than that of a seaside residence expressly created to enrapture the senses and indulge every desire. All this is consummately embodied in this unparalleled oceanfront estate designed by noted architects Vigneault and Hoos. Sprawling over three acres in an almost impossibly beautiful setting on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, this walled and gated compound pays homage to the famed villas of the Mediterranean with authentic touches of the Côte D’Azur.
With the palatial great house as its centerpiece, the property features combined living spaces totaling 22,200+/- square feet with eight bedrooms, eleven full and three half baths, including a private guest house and gatehouse/caretaker’s cottage. Exquisite details intertwine in a rich tapestry throughout lavish entertaining areas and intimate retreats, with the artful floor-plan blending seamlessly with stunning outdoor venues. Grand view-filled loggias give way to sweeping lawns with luxuriant gardens, mature oaks, and specimen palms. There is an oceanfront pool as well as a courtyard lap pool, garages for eight cars, and an immense motor court. Fronting 155+/- feet on the ocean the serene grounds also highlight a wide dune-fringed sandy beach.
The allure of this masterpiece is immeasurable and irresistible. Not only is this one of the largest and finest oceanfront properties in Vero Beach, it is also one of the world’s great estates, a place where life is lived to the very fullest.
