Intracoastal Estate Wins Preservation Foundation Award

A lakefront house designed for indoor-outdoor living on one of the highest sites in Palm Beach has been honored by the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach for excellence in new architecture. Richard Sammons accepted the Elizabeth L. and John H. Schuler Award Friday on behalf of his firm for the design of the house on Hi Mount Road on the North End. Interior designers Lillian Fernandez and Crista Kobza provided the home with contemporary-style interiors. Chris Glapinski of Fairfax, Sammons & Partners was the project architect for the house, which was built by Hedrick Brothers. David Hustad was the structural engineer.

World-class craftsmen, artisans, and specialty contractors built the sophisticated home with exquisite materials, from teak hardwood floors, Venetian plaster, and selectively sourced marble and stone inside and out. Refined masterpieces of millwork and four wood-burning fireplaces fill the home. The outdoor living spaces, surrounded by meticulous landscaping, are framed with water features and stone paving. The stone used throughout the home was imported from Portugal, India, and China. The handsome colonial exterior, sweeping lawn, stunning custom pools, robust palm trees, and landscaping give the home an alluring finish. With its lakefront views, whether enjoying the indoors or outdoors, this home is truly paradise.
