Home of the Week: Live Like Royalty on Princess Isle
A nearly 2 acre beachfront estate just 90 miles from Miami
Located just 90 miles from Miami, this this elegant gated island property sits on nearly two beautiful oceanfront acres. The estate listed at $9.9 million offers you any kind of lifestyle you want – whether it be one of relaxation or one of exercise and entertaining. We believe that no one can tell the story of a home better than the people who live in it, so here’s what current owner (and former Victoria Secret President) David Kollat had to say about this remarkable home.
“The architect (John Mitchell), interior designer (David Berg) and I designed the house over a three year period. We began construction in June 2005 and completed in March 2008. I love this house so much. When I was in the fashion business I spent a lot of time in beautiful mansions in Newport, Rhode Island, and Palm Beach, Florida. I loved the architecture of Palm Beach, particularly the work of Addison Misner; his work was the primary inspiration for the architectural style of the house. The architect and I used coral, hand made barrel roof tiles (made in Colombia) and pecky Cyprus in the style of the 1920s, but blended in modern necessities and touches like hurricane proof windows and doors.”
The sprawling grounds and locale are indeed special, but the interior of the residence is not to be outdone. The amazing home features 6 bedrooms with 6 full bathrooms, several interior and exterior fireplaces, a den, office and formal living room. The 13,000 square foot home boasts every amenity one could desire – from the state of the art kitchen, to the fully equipped gym, Brunswick pool table and heated outdoor pool.
