A work of art could be a painting or a sculpture. Sometimes it’s a built structure, a piece of architecture that evokes a sense of emotion and awe.
This inspiring European-style mansion is a perfect example of art as home. Set in Ponce Inlet just south of Daytona Beach, the privately gated estate rests on three acres, welcoming you into its Old World presence with an art-lined drive enveloped by a canopy of mature trees. A fountain rests at the center of the grand residence, which spans over 12,000 square feet. A magnificent entry ushers you inside the museum-like interiors, where more sculptures and mosaic tile artwork, all imported from Italy, reside. The details and craftsmanship leave some visitors breathless as they take in the stunning staircase and dome ceiling. More impeccable architectural detailing awaits throughout: solid marble columns, open book marble flooring, mahogany doors with African wood inlay and 24-karat gold doorknobs, hand-sculpted Carrara marble fireplace, an office designed and imported from Marocco and 700-year-old wine cellar doors. Multiple entertaining spaces – from formal living and dining spaces to a lavish bar and movie theater – offer endless opportunities to host family or friends. A total of six bedrooms, seven full baths, two half-baths, and an elevator complete the offerings. There is also a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house.
When it’s time to step outside, you’ll find a floating edge pool, a custom spa, and a “garden” of imported artwork surrounding it. Making the most of its 130-foot coastal waterfront position, this exquisite manse also has a deep water boat dock – perfect for the yachter’s lifestyle. It’s a vision inside and out.
