“As you enter Palazzo Grande, it’s as if you have been transported from Palm Beach to an old world Italian villa. The level of details, exquisite materials and custom design is refreshing and very unique for a modern home,” said Pierce. “The beauty and craftsmanship of old world combined with modern amenities make this property one of a kind in today’s market.”
The six-bedroom, six-bath plus two half-bath mansion was built in 2005 and designed to evoke the romantic atmosphere of a 16th century Italian Renaissance villa, while providing a warm environment for family and guests with every modern convenience. The façade features a portico with Corinthian columns that was inspired by the east façade of the Louvre in Paris. The entire exterior of Palazzo Grande is faced with cast-stone marble veneer, an architectural surface material extensively used throughout Europe.
The home features 40 chandeliers including 30 Czechoslovakian crystal chandeliers and four gold-leafed Russian chandeliers. Custom details throughout the mansion include hand-carved wood ceilings and doors, Herbeau plumbing fixtures, limestone walls, and mahogany floors inspired by the Palace of Versailles.
