Property Description

''The Geckoes" is a mid-century modern architectural gem - one of the last remaining South Florida properties designed by Palm Beach architect Byron Simonson who also designed the Colony Hotel and the former La Coquille Club in Manalapan, and was a former protege of Addison Mizner and Maurice Fatio. The 4th home off Flagler drive invites a short stroll to the Intracoastal waterway. The owners, the Lord and Lady of Wrentnall, have architecturally restored the interior - keeping it as original as possible; built-ins, cabinets, vaulted cypress ceilings and commanding exposed beams. An open floor plan lends easy transition from the more formal living room area to long dining room, work/office area and a pleasantly functional open kitchen in keeping with the design. The screened porch gives private repose to enjoy the view of the yard. Interior colors blend very pleasantly into the architect's design. The high original cypress ceilings and beams are a focal point to the design along with the wonderful floor plan. The homes systems (electric, plumbing) have been updated while retaining the architecture. It should be noted that the location near the Intracoastal provides short access to Palm Beach International Airport, I-95, the Beaches â€" and all of this with no airplane noise. This is the perfect full-time home, seasonal get-away, or for a family with children desiring to be in the South Olive Elementary district. Some of the furniture/furnishings which were chosen to complement the home beautifully, could be included in the sale. Feature lighting for the house and trees. There is ample room for a pool.
