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 protege of Addison Mizner and Maurice Fatio. The Geckoes is less than 500' from the Intracoastal Waterway. The owners, the Lord and Lady of Wrentnall, have architecturally restored the interior (2012-2015)-keeping it as original as possible to the original blueprints which the owners have: 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. More to tell! Exquisite design/fastidious maintenance. Interior and exterior recently painted; colors blend very pleasantly into the architect's design.The home's systems (electric, plumbing, 2-zone HVAC with all new ducting) have been updated while retaining the architecture. New appliances and laundry room. Flooring replaced with ceramic and vinyl in keeping with original design. Roof inspected by engineers and a certificate for roof provided plus this roof has been maintained/cleaned/resealed (excellent insulation value). Termite tenting in 2012/2017; transferable warranty. New concrete drive/parking area. Plumbing drainage lines cleaned and serviced. Timed lighting for the house and trees. There is ample room for a pool. The owners are very proud of their home and the way they have restored and kept it not only beautifully but in tip-top condition.
