The 16-acre gated property is reminiscent of an island, fronting 1,200 feet of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean in addition to 1,300 feet along the serene Intracoastal Waterway. The centerpiece of Gemini is the 12-bedroom main residence, but the compound includes separate guest quarters, two four-bedroom beachside cottages, a seven-bedroom Mango House, a manager's house with four apartments, and manager's offices.

The property also hosts a pool, tennis court, basketball court, and even its own golf course. Priced at $195 million, Gemini was named the most expensive property for sale in the country last year. The jaw-dropping price tag is well placed for its obvious grandeur, historic value and unbelievable features. Let's take an exclusive look inside Gemini, a breathtaking property that exceeds all expectations.

A Rich History

The original home was designed by architect Marion Sims Wyeth, constructed in the 1940s for the Lambert pharmaceutical family. The property later became a winter retreat of Loel and Gloria Guinness, who was a fashion icon and socialite of her time. The current owners collaborated with noted Palm Beach architect Edson E. Dailey on a complete transformation of the property, which was completed in 2003. The entire residence was reconstructed and expanded to create a home as exquisite as it is well-engineered to withstand the elements.
