    An original Mizner remodeled/expanded by Jeff Smith in Palm Beach. What more could you want? Honestly, a fantastic remodel IMO. I love how they kept the original details while carefully modernizing the home. So glad they took the remodel instead of the demolish route. I’m curious to see what this is being shopped around for. I’d say somewhere north of $25 million.

    I love the exterior. The interior for me is not my cup of tea.

    Beautiful exterior and grounds. I’m also glad that the house was restored and remodeled instead of replaced with something newer. It’s too bad that the house is separated from the beach by the road, but that’s a problem in a lot of Palm Beach. Inside, it’s nice that there are still a lot of period details, but it’s not my favorite.

    I agree with everyone else, the exterior is really fresh and appealing and the location is fantastic. The interior I’m not a fan of, but I don’t really like Mediterranean style homes, if it was me personally I’d have cream walls and carpets.

    I also agree. We toured the home before the remodel started. I am surprised that the floor in many of the rooms was not replaced. I am sorry, I thought the floors were ugly back then…they are still ugly.
