VERO BEACH, Fla., April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DeCaro Luxury Auctions has announced it will sell Palazzo Di Mare, located at 2150 South Highway A1A in Vero Beach, Florida, at auction on April 30, 2016. The six-bedroom, 10-bathroom main estate is situated on five lush acres of land, dotted with native flowers, plants and palm trees. The sprawling 24,000-square-foot oceanfront property features a lawn that doubles as a helipad and a 205-foot private beach with a sandy shoreline.
"Palazzo Di Mare translates to 'Palace by the Sea' in Italian, which suits the estate's castle-like appearance that took five years to develop, and its unmatched views of the Atlantic Ocean," said Daniel DeCaro, CEO and founder of DeCaro Luxury Auctions. "The April 30th auction is an opportunity for someone who appreciates fine architecture to purchase an estate with unique Mediterranean-influenced details and stained glass windows that were inspired by The Great Gatsby. The estate is located in Vero Beach, which was named the most attractive location for Fortune 500 CEOs to visit in the United States by Money Magazine."
At the grand entrance of Palazzo Di Mare, a circular driveway features a European-style fountain, which is surrounded by two drive-down ramps that lead to an underground, climate-controlled car collector's garage with parking for 14. Wrought iron and glass French doors open to the home's 35-foot soaring entryway with a vaulted ceiling and an award-winning Schonbek Chandelier. Polished black-marble flooring leads to the first-level living room, complete with a fireplace and picture windows overlooking the extensive grounds and breathtaking ocean views.
The estate's gourmet kitchen features Sub-Zero and Thermador appliances, including stacked double ovens and a warming drawer, as well as a gas stove. A large center island with black quartz countertops, a sink and bar seating compliments the adjacent, counter-height peninsula, which can serve as a breakfast bar with additional seating. A formal dining room is located off the kitchen and features seating for eight, a 14-Karat gold leaf ceiling and a crystal chandelier.
The master suite on the estate's first level features a hand-painted ceiling mural of fairies in the night sky and is accented by several double-hung windows with arched tops, silver and gold custom-carved columns and a wrought iron spiral staircase. The suite also features a separate living area, a walk-in closet and a luxurious bathroom with dual vanity sinks, a free-standing circular Jacuzzi tub and an oversized walk-in shower. Three additional bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets are also on the first level.
A sweeping staircase that extends from the home's entryway leads to the expansive second level, which includes an indoor balcony, a sitting area, and a sky deck with a solarium. At 51-feet tall, the sky deck is the highest residential point on the island of Vero Beach. The remaining two bedrooms are located on the estate's second level, each with private balconies and full bathrooms. Two elevators also provide access to each level of the home.
Additional living and entertaining rooms at Palazzo Di Mare include a wood-beamed library, a game room, a bar with a stained-glass ceiling, a wine vault, a study and a sound-proof screening room. An additional one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house is also located on the property, complete with a full kitchen and ocean access.
At the back of the estate, palm trees and a stone deck with lounge chairs, a stage and a cabana with a kitchen surround a Venetian-inspired Italian pool. The elaborate pool features glass tiles, 14-karat gold leaf details, three fountains, a swim-up bar with seating for five and an attached spa. The property's grassy back lawn also serves as a helipad, just steps from the private 205-foot beach along the Atlantic Ocean.
Also included in the sale is the adjacent 2.5-acre parcel of land that fronts the Indian River. The property is composed of two buildable lots and features a private dock with a 10,000-pound automatic boat lift, which provides homeowners with direct access to the Fort Pierce or Sebastian inlets.
One of the safest places in Vero Beach, Palazzo Di Mare previously housed the National Guard during dangerous weather. The self-containing home was built with impact glass, a generator with three 1,000-gallon propane tanks and a 2,500-gallon water tank with a pump. Break-away, collapsible walls in the basement also protect the home, which was securely built on flood resistant pillars.
Palazzo Di Mare is located just minutes from premium shopping and dining options in downtown Vero Beach. The Moorings Yacht & Country Club is five-minutes from the home and offers a number of memberships for golf or tennis players. 2150 South Highway A1A is also a three-minute drive to Avalon State Park, a 10-minute drive to Fort Pierce Inlet State Park and a 20-minute drive to Vero Beach Regional Airport.
2150 South Highway A1A is open for prospective buyers to view starting Saturday, April 9, 2016 and continuing every Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The last scheduled open house will be held the day before the auction on Friday, April 29, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Private tours are also available by calling DeCaro Luxury Auctions at 1.800.332.3767.
