BEACHY KEEN

Evoking images of moneyed families like the Vanderbilts and the Astors, this newly built 12,426 square-foot paradise is one block from the Atlantic Ocean and steps from the stellar shops of Worth Avenue. Set along El Vedado Road in Palm Beach, the magnificent entryway is decked out in limestone floors with cabochon inlays and canopied by a domed ceiling. With a striking floor plan, mansion-seeking buyers will find four fireplaces with antique mantles, a handsome wood paneled library, and plenty of custom cabinetry and woodwork throughout. The house boasts five bedrooms, two staff rooms, a storm room, a wine room, and a connected cabana. In addition to nine full bathrooms and two powder rooms, this house features a fivecar garage and a back-up generator. $16.5 million. AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY.

“Florida Real Estate is in a state of total confusion,” says Gavin Susman, COO of Sky Development, Inc. “By and large, the success of a project boils down to the location and type. New high-rise condos will face difficulties, but we feel current mixed-use projects that consist of offices, resident units, and hotels like our City Park Aventura will be successful.”
