By Linde Hyder - Rare is the opportunity to own a slice of paradise. Rarer still, is the chance to own a property recognized as the third-largest oceanfront compound in all of Palm Beach County. Imagine watching the sun rise over the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean from an estate that spans 520 feet of private sandy beach and encompasses more nearly 8 acres of meticulously landscaped grounds.

The dream becomes reality with an offering that is so exceptional, mere words cannot adequately describe the sheer artistry and magnificent craftsmanship it reflects. Designed to capitalize on its enviable backdrop, the 15, 514-square-foot plan combines panoramic ocean vistas with unique architectural elements and the finest finishes and fixtures. Rest assured no expense was spared, nor any detail left untouched in the creation of this waterfront masterpiece.

Tucked away within a 24-hour guard-gated community, the nearly eight-acre estate is also gated, providing a setting that is private and secure for the discerning individual. An ideal venue for large-scale entertaining, the property is a tropical oasis where lush, colorful foliage surrounds an expansive outdoor terrace, swimming pool with waterfall and spa, tennis court and a covered lanai with stone fireplace.

Inside, the seven-bedroom layout is a delightful array of Tuscan-inspired appointments including colorful wall murals, hand-stenciled pecky cypress ceilings, arched doorways and a sweeping wrought-iron staircase. Formal occasions are suitably hosted in the banquet-sized dining room or in the sprawling grand room, while casual gatherings will surely focus in the home theater and wine room. The generously-sized kitchen will delight cooks of any skill with an abundance of work and storage space and a sun-dappled breakfast nook.

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is further enhanced by its exclusive address within the quiet enclave of Seminole Landing, regarded as the hidden gem of North Palm Beach. Featuring Seminole Golf Club—recognized among the most storied golf clubs in the U.S.—the highly sought-after community offers world-class shopping and dining nearby, as well as full-service marinas that can accommodate yachts of any size. Palm Beach International Airport is also just minutes away.
