Description: Old-world opulence and up-to-date amenities add up to comfort and elegance at this Intracoastal Waterway, Venetian-inspired masterpiece located about halfway between Palm Beach and Boca Raton. The property perches on the narrow barrier beach with a toe in both the Intracoastal and the Atlantic.

There's a poolside, triple arched roofed veranda that shelters a dining set, soft chairs and sofas, carpets and a working fireplace. The pool is palm-fringed and has a whirlpool and soaking pool.

Indoors is an extravagance of deluxe features and amenities. There are beautiful hardwood, stone and ceramic floors, decorated ceilings, delicate grill work, Moorish arches and wonderful wood paneled walls.
