The city of Palm Beach has approved two home designs that will sit in close proximity to the Florida White House, a.k.a. Mar-a-Largo. The Palm Beach Daily News reports:
Designs for two new houses on South Ocean Boulevard have won the town’s approval for the Estate Section neighborhood that closes to through-trafffic when President Donald Trump visits nearby Mar-a-Lago.
Architects Harold Smith and son Taylor Smith of Smith and Moore Architects got good news late last month when a 5-2 vote of the Architectural Commission earned them approval for the two-story custom home they designed for a half-acre lot at 1030 S. Ocean Blvd.
On the corner of Via Palma, the eight-bedroom, 14,683-square-foot house will be built for commodities trader Nedim Soylemez. In an off-market transaction last month, he used an ownership company to pay a recorded $7.6 million for the property. His new neoclassical-style home will replace an outdated house there.
