This two-story home, built in 1922, is located in West Palm Beach's historic Old Northwood, a lovely neighborhood of Mediterranean and bungalow-style homes. Totally renovated and updated in 2003, the home showcases the interior design talents of the owner, a nationally acclaimed designer, who creates beautiful interiors from coast to coast in the USA, as well as in Canada. He has created a sophisticated yet relaxed vacation retreat that is now available for lease to discriminating individuals.
This private home is located one-and-one-half blocks from the intracoastal waterway at Curry Park, and just minutes from Palm Beach with its beautiful sun-drenched beaches and world-class shopping areas. There are biking and walking trails, as well as public tennis courts and public boat launches at the park.
As you enter this professionally decorated home, a beautiful sun porch with seating and dining areas greets you. The colors of the house are blue and white which evoke a feeling of the Greek Islands. The theme of the house is mid-century contemporary.
The first floor has a large living room with fireplace, formal dining room, newly renovated kitchen with granite counter tops, breakfast room overlooking the pool, and a screened-in porch with seating area and table, also overlooking the pool.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, all with private marble baths. The master has a connecting screened-in sleeping porch with queen-size bed overlooking the courtyard and the pool. The laundry is also located on this floor.
The deck leads down to the courtyard, which contains a beautiful new pool with lighting, connected whirlpool spa with waterfall, and beautiful, tropically landscaped grounds. The carriage house is draped with bougainvillea vines. An outdoor shower with hot-and-cold water is adjacent to the half bath.
The pier to board the Palm Beach Princess, the local gaming cruise line, is just a few blocks north of the home. Shopping is available on nearby Worth Avenue, City Place, and Clematis Street.
