Middle Road Palm Beach, Florida, 33480 United States La Casa Sin Nombre: One of Palm Beach's Finest Estates, Palm Beach, Florida 33480 United States is a 4.00 Acres sq ft Single Family Home with 10 bedrooms, 12 Full Baths and was built in 1921. ABOUT MIDDLE ROAD Tucked away in the exclusive estate section of Palm Beach and situated on a rare parcel of more than four acres, this oceanfront enclave is host to two magnificent residences as well as three staff or guest houses. Assembled by the late billionaire, entrepreneur, and philanthropist John Kluge, the compound is comprised of four separate properties that were joined together to fulfill his vision of creating a verdant, parklike retreat with 150 feet of oceanfront and a private beach parcel. The Ocean House, designed in 1921 by famed society architect Addison Mizner and cast in his indelible Mediterranean Revival style, spans more than 5,500 square feet of elegant living spaces. Mizner, whose early 20th-Century works forever shaped the look of the island, infused each room with unique details while maximizing the tropical garden and shimmering ocean views. The sun-filled living room, with original carved-stone fireplace and Cuban-tile floors, leads to an informal loggia bathed in soothing ocean breezes. A library, formal dining room, three bedrooms, and a pool complete the oceanfront residence. The impressive Garden House, built circa 1935 in the British Colonial style, spans more than 12,700 square feet. Welcomed by an enchanting hand-painted rotunda and arched entryway, both the casino and informal living room have classic Palladian-inspired doors and windows revealing the expansive coquina courtyard and endless gardens beyond. The formal living room and library, both with fireplaces, boast original period details. The formal dining room features a stenciled beamed ceiling as well as French doors that reveal the stunning reflecting pool, fountain, and perfectly groomed gardens. Three separate residences provide ample private accommodations for guests or staff. Both the Ocean and Garden residences offer the perfect venue for entertaining on a grand scale in a magical setting. Nearly three-quarters of this expansive park-like property is dedicated to impeccably manicured lawns, lush landscaping, and an impressive reflecting pool, offering the perfect setting to showcase collections of monumental art. These idyllic accents create an unparalleled private compound in the heart of Palm Beach's estate section, only three blocks from world-renowned Worth Avenue. Palm Beach is a barrier island sited between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. Originally a resort, the Town of Palm Beach is a cosmopolitan community known worldwide for its quality of life and acclaimed hotels, shops and restaurants, and is accessed by a nearby international airport.
