$35 Million

Property Description


In the prestigious town of Gulf Stream, a hidden gem in the heart of South Florida’s Gold Coast just north of Delray Beach, this historic direct oceanfront mansion was designed by society architect Howard Brougham Major for Wall Street banker and onetime president of the United States Golf Association, Howard Whitney. Dating from 1926, it is from the same era as the  famous Addison Mizner-designed Gulf Stream Golf Club and Gulf Stream Polo Club -- both of which established this then-new community as an exclusive winter luxury resort.


Presiding over more than 200 feet of oceanfront, this gated and walled compound, which recalls the elegance and glamour of 1920s Palm Beach, invites gracious entertaining and the enjoyment of luxurious leisure time by the sea. Creating a grand sense of arrival, the drive meanders through lushly landscaped 1.32 +/- acres to the mansion’s main courtyard, past outbuildings that include the charming three-bedroom gatehouse, a garden house with a two-car garage and studio apartment, and the gym. In the romantic courtyard garden that surrounds the 20-by-40-foot saltwater pool and cabanas, a noteworthy embellishment includes Spanish tiled murals custom-created by artist Jose Manuel Tos.


Masterfully conceived by renowned society architect, Howard Major, this iconic 1926-era landmark masterpiece, “Viento y Mar,” features exquisite details in keeping with its era coupled with curated European-sourced ornamentations plus every accommodation for modern luxury living. Details of this magnificent 12,627 +/- total-square-foot estate include tranquil ocean views from all the main rooms, 19th-century ironwork, cypress-lined cathedral ceilings, and a medley of handsome flooring that include antique reclaimed limestone and sandstone, hardwood, and antique French blanc-rose terracotta tile. With a brilliant layout built around a breezy central courtyard framed by glass-walled galleries, this amazing residence is introduced by way of a romantic front courtyard garden, highlighted by a beautiful fountain imported from France. From here, one enters into an enchanting foyer that immediately offers a long view down the adjoining gallery to the ocean. In the living room, the gas fireplace is adorned by an 18th century mantel from a French Chateau. An outstanding detail in the ocean-view dining room is its antique tile wall mural, which was preserved from a Cuban hacienda. A butler’s pantry connects the dining room to the cook-island kitchen, topped by a beadboard-lined ceiling and fitted with custom cabinets, Carrera marble tops, professional-grade appliances, and large walk-in pantry. The primary suite, with French doors that open to the ocean, comprises a large closet and spa-inspired Caesar-stone and marble bathroom. Completing the floor plan of the main residence are three guest bedroom suites, media room, second-floor ocean-view terrace and attached two-car garage. An artful transformation of an historic property for unparalleled luxury living, this breathtaking compound, which endures as one of Gulf Stream’s largest and most prestigious estates, now awaits curation by its next discerning owner.
