Location Palm Trail, Delray Beach, Florida. The allure of picturesque Palm Trail is enjoyed in a desirable location within walking distance of Atlantic Avenue and the beach. Property Designed by famous Palm Beach society architect John Volk, this Key West-inspired estate is hidden by a tree-canopied, walled courtyard on lush grounds fronting 100 feet on the Intracoastal. Dating from 1941 and tastefully renovated, this warmly inviting historic gem translates perfectly to todays relaxed lifestyle. The classic screened porch creates a charming open-air living/dining room capturing the waterfront views and breezes. Sweeping lawns surround the sun-splashed pool. Encompassing a deck for watching the passing yachts, the full-service dock offers unobstructed access to the ocean. Residence Scenic Intracoastal views fill nearly every room of this beautifully designed residence set off by handsome wood floors. The comfortable floor-plan totals 4,925 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and 2-bay garage. Anchored by an elegant fireplace and brightened by floor-to-ceiling windows, the living room opens to the porch and waterfront views. Complete with a built-in buffet and china cupboard, the gracious dining room overlooks the Intracoastal, as does the adjoining tile-floored kitchen with stainless steel appliances. A vaulted ceiling highlights the airy open family room. A private suite with bedroom, bath and spacious great room leads to another screened porch completing this level. Upstairs, the spacious sunlit master suite opens to a treetop balcony overlooking the Intracoastal. There are custom built-ins plus a generous walk-in closet. Waterfront views even backdrop the private master bath. Served by another bath, 2 more bedrooms face the Intracoastal, and one opens to a view-filled sun deck.
