Swaying palm trees and meticulously manicured hedgerows line highly desirable Atlantic Avenue in Palm Beach. The natural emerald swatches are striking against the terracotta roofs atop the block’s tropically-inspired mansions. And the soothing sounds of the nearby ocean provide the perfect backdrop for this picturesque stretch. But now, an Atlantic Avenue newcomer is already turning heads, poised to become the talk of the town.
The recently completed modern home located at 111 Atlantic Avenue is truly a sight to behold. Crisp, clean lines and a brilliant white façade lend the gleaming mansion its contemporary aesthetic, echoing the iconic architectural design details popularized in the 1930s. Suzanne Frisbie listed the dreamy Palm Beach retreat for $14.9 million.
The beautifully appointed home was developed by Todd Michael Glaser and designed by Rafael Portuondo of Portuondo-Perotti Architects based in Coral Gables. The team previously collaborated on the Mediterranean style home situated just next door at 113 Atlantic Avenue, which was also listed by Suzanne Frisbie. Meanwhile the landscaping design was thoughtfully programmed by Palm Beach-based Nievera Williams Design to include enchanting secret gardens and nine bubbling fountains that offer a gentle reminder that the ocean is just steps away.
Light and airy, the spectacular estate is tucked away in the highly sought after mid-town section of Palm Beach. The house was designed with an inverted “U” configuration that envelopes a luxurious central courtyard. Its scalloped Deco-inspired reliefs and floor-to-ceiling glass walls and doors drench the house in natural light while providing unobstructed garden views from nearly every room.
With seven spacious bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and two half-baths, the elegant home offers 7,536 square feet of living space, inside and out, and provides an idyllic escape for entertaining or relaxing. Other thoughtful design details of the Palm Beach property include 8-inch-wide-plank light-oak floors throughout the house; terrazzo-covered exterior balconies and courtyards; and polished marble countertops in the state-of-the-art kitchen.
