Villa Venezio, Estate of the Day
Today's estate comes from The Real Estate Journal. Veronica Hearst and Randolph Apperson Hearst bought this stunning home in 2000 for nearly $30 million. The nine-bedroom stone mansion was built in 1929 by the Vanderbilt family and was formerly known as Eastover. The home is now called Villa Venezio and has more than 30,000 square feet of space on 3.5 acres in Manalapan, Florida. It fronts both the ocean and the intracoastal waterway. The estate also has a guest house, dock and a six-car garage. This classic Maurice Fatio-designed home is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The most stunning feature of the home, aside from the location and the size, is the ornate carved stonework on the columns, ceilings and walls. It is listed at $27 million.
