A once in a lifetime opportunity to own a Intracoastal home and guesthouse with unparalleled panoramic wide water views completely updated and with a historical provenance. This is truly a Lantana landmark masterpiece located less than a block from Downtown Lantana and the famous Old Key Lime House. It offers S. Florida living at its finest, being on the water, and a short walk to the beautiful Lantana beach. One of the home's best features is a full renovation included in the purchase price designed by the renowned Architect Cynthia Spray and renovations done by the very reputable Gast Construction Group of WPB. A considerable budget has been set aside for renovation, including impact windows and doors. But there is a unique opportunity (with-in the first month of listing)for the new buyer to choose the finishes prior to the springtime completion date. Imagine being able to pick your own flooring, cabinetry, colors, and appliances and putting your own personal touch on this magnificent home. Another exciting feature of the home is the historical provenance. Originally designed by the famous Belford Shoumate, who oversaw and designed what are now historical homes on Palm Beach Island; he only designed a handful of homes on the mainland, which this was one of (to the seller's knowledge, this is the only remaining home on the mainland). Designed in 1945 for a friend, Belford oversaw and directed the construction of it several years later. The building quality and quality of materials used represent the period and Shoumate's other projects; high-quality materials, exacting artisanship, and over-engineered structurally. The home sits on over a sprawling half-acre with its own sandy beach, and is a fascinating feature of the property as most water-front lots are half this size and have seawalls. The eastern exposure of the back of the home is also very coveted for spectacular sunrises over the wide water intracoastal and refreshing sea breezes captured from just about every room. This home stays cool and bright throughout the year. Another amazing feature of the house is a detached two-car garage with a full 1/1 guest suite. Your guests can now visit and have their own private residence. This would also make an incredible Airbnb rental and help cover the home's costs if need be. Overall, Lantana is a real gem of South Florida and has a unique history and charm that can not be matched. With refined and casual dining all within close walking distance and the overall bohemian feel and community, Lantana is very desirable and why homes in the area rarely come on the market (this is the only SFH with a water view on the market right now). Also, being only 15 minutes from Downtown West Palm Beach and the PBI airport and 15 minutes from trendy Delray Beach, the possibilities for nightlife and sophisticated culture are endless. As you can see, the home is truly one of a kind and will not last long make your South Florida dream home a reality! *Please note interior photos are prior to the current renovation.
