THIS ESTATE EXEMPLIFIES PALM BEACH ARCHITECTURE

The lavish, Venetian-style architecture of Palm Beach, FL, can be traced back to the work of architect Addison Mizner, who was active in the 1920s. This estate -- with its cathedral windows, arched waterfront passages and private cabana -- exemplifies Mizner's vision. The estate is dubbed "Casa del Ensueños" and has been designated an official landmark by the town.

Mizner's dedication to Old World, Italian architecture is demonstrated by an elevated walkway that recalls the Vasari Corridor in Florence. Notice the marble floors, meticulous stonework and carved beams which exemplify the lavish style for which Mizner was known.

The 1.5-acre property has a medieval-inspired maze amid a cornucopia of other vibrant greenery. It's located in front of Lake Worth and features a swimming pool, a guest room and a dock with a boat lift.
