When Palm Beach socialite Lila Vanderbilt Webb conceived this Gulf Stream compound in 1931, in partnership with her son and with renowned architect Maurice Fatio, she sourced design ideas from Addison Mizner and materials (from tiles to stonework) from his local factory. Her vision, artfully realized by prominent Palm Beach builder C.G. Warner, had as its focal point a three-story tower residence crowned by the mirador, or lookout, that inspired its name. It was completed in 1933.
The charming oceanview kitchen boasts a slanted tongue-and-groove ceiling, custom cabinetry, marble counters and top-tier appliances.
By 1941, the estate was split into two properties, both of which hold the mirador title. Reimagined in 2014 by architect Mark Marsh and a host of other designers, Miradero has been modernized, refined and expanded without compromising its architectural integrity or historic charm.
The VIP suite of the guest house has a pecky cypress vaulted ceiling, boutique walk-in closet and attached marble bath.
Today’s Miradero has its signature tower residence, the original guest house and a pool house addition, all complete with secure smart-house technology. There are five bedrooms, an oceanfront office, five full and two half baths, a Mario Nievera landscape with private beach access and an outdoor shower.
The estate-sized oceanfront property is electronically gated, hedged and approached by a long paver drive from A1A. BELOW RIGHT: A coral deck and resort-style pool with separate spa lie between the pool house and the tower residence framed with lush tropical gardens.
