Villa Isola, Estate of the Day
Today's home in Palm Beach, Florida has the exterior facade of some of the older homes in the area but this villa on Everglades Island is new. The recently completed 7,814 sq.ft. home has a Spanish tile roof, Gothic arches and Moorish windows aping the style of Addison Mizner. This home has five bedrooms, an elevator, generator and is wired with a Lutron control system. The covered loggia looks out over the pool and patios on the water where there is a large boat dock with lift. The interior doesn't quite follow through on the grace promised by the exterior facade but it does have many of the features that today's buyers are looking and is dressed up in that particularly heavy and self-consciously ornate style that some South Florida mansions seem to favor. It is listed at an ambitious $17.5 million.
