Iconic Palm Beach

Rarely does one have the chance to purchase such an important estate on Palm Beach located on the corner of Clarke Avenue and South Ocean Boulevard. Built originally in 1926 by renowned Palm Beach architect Marion Sims Wyeth, La Salona exudes true Palm Beach style. When one enters the arched entry courtyard, you’re swept back in time. Although originally built in 1926, the home has been completely updated under the current owner over the past 30 years. The most recent renovation of the western portion of the home was completed in 2016. The home encompasses five separate living areas within approx. 19,434 square feet, offering 16 bedrooms, 17 full bathrooms and five half bathrooms. Distinctive features of the house include exquisite Cypress coffered ceilings, stenciled using a technique called lime paste.

The decorative ironwork, the paneling and Mediterranean tile work dating back from Addison Mizner’s workshop. The dining room features a coffered ceiling, carved columns, floor tiles and paneled doors which are all part of the original construction. This prestigious estate offers sprawling ocean views from the master suite along with four private guest suites and breathtaking courtyard gardens. No other home in-town exemplifies the classic Palm Beach with its timeless architecture.
