A true American landmark, the majestic oceanfront estate known as Villa Tranquilla was designed in the 1920s by legendary architect Addison Mizner, expanded in the 1940s under the careful direction of Marion Sims Wyeth, and thoroughly restored and updated in 2013 by architect Jeffery Smith.
Spanning approximately 15,500 square feet and boasting exquisite classical Mediterranean style, the home remains true to the Old World splendor Mizner envisioned while offering state-of-the-art technology and every contemporary convenience expected in such an eminent home.
The estate encompasses a five-bedroom primary residence, a one-bedroom guesthouse, two-bedroom staff quarters, a three-car garage, and a sizeable motor court.
Loggias and patios envelop the alluring heated swimming pool. The expansive property lives up to its name, with lush landscaping, 175 feet of ocean frontage, and deeded beach access. The eastern façade is devoted to this seaside view, and everywhere balconies, decks, loggias, and patios afford enviable vistas of the serene surroundings.
The ideal floor plan of the main home features exquisitely appointed living spaces, Mizner’s original “pub,” an impeccably outfitted chef’s kitchen with granite and stone countertops, a home theater, and a library. Nearly every room has an impressive view.
Contributing to the timeless elegance are floors of hardwood and classical tile, French doors and fan transoms, a Spanish tile roof, and numerous graceful arches indoors and out. Modern amenities include central air conditioning and a top-tier security system.
