    A Resplendent Estate In Palm Beach Gardens Celebrates Luxurious Living With Sleek

    Contemporary Style And Warm, Welcoming Interiors

    In complement to the home’s modern architecture, the clean lines and narrow frames of storefront-style windows define the foyer, while marble flooring, soaring ceilings, Century consoles and the atomic design of Acme Lighting’s chandelier bespeak a sophisticated style.

  • STYLISHLY POISED AMONG THE LUSH SURROUNDINGS encompassing the luxurious Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., this lavish custom estate was designed on one of the last premier lots available within this exclusive private community. Taking full advantage of the spectacular views outside, the elaborate dwelling gleams like a jewel amidst what is considered one of the most exquisite golf clubs in the world.

    With such extraordinary scenery at play and a stellar location, it’s not at all hard to imagine why interior designer Terri Polimeni was more than enthusiastic

    to put her expert design skills to work when architect Randall Stofft and builder Marty Hasey decided to embark on this project. “Marty has completed many of the homes in Old Palm, and I always enjoy the opportunity to work on such beautiful projects,” Polimeni says. “I also love working with an amazing team, especially starting with an adaptable architectural plan and seeing it come to life with flowing details added during construction.”

    Boasting 8,533 square feet of interior space and 11,913 square feet overall, this contemporary and livable home is perfect for large-scale entertaining, yet

    The living area’s visual connection to the dining area makes this great room ideal for entertaining. Sumptuous Century sofas, a plush Kalaty area rug and an onyx stone mantle define the seating area. With its finely curved, hand-carved strokes, a sculptural piece from Christopher Guy, Le Remous, creates movement above the custom-designed fireplace.

  • emits a warm and inviting modern vibe. The spacious rooms provided Polimeni with an ideal opportunity to implement dramatic and eye-catching details. Such is the case in the sweeping foyer, where contemporary consoles — purposely chosen for the Lucite legs — appear to float in front of expansive storefront style windows.

    In keeping, a wall of glass lines the great room that captivates with swirling onyx stone on the living area’s spectacular fireplace. Polimeni’s neutral scheme is warm with soft shades of gray and sumptuous fabrics. A plush area rug grounds the space, while a sculptural piece centers the fireplace wall. “The beautiful onyx on the fireplace gives a linear pattern and richness to the overall space,” the designer says. “The wall’s lacquer finish is custom colored to enhance the interior palette.”

    Across the room, a cascade of effervescent orbs sparkle above the dining area’s table that comfortably accommodates both large and small gatherings. Upholstered dining chairs make a soft and elegant statement in complement to the polished, white marble flooring.

    “Of all of the rooms in the home, I found the clubroom to be the most challenging,”

    interior designer Terri Polimeni says. “I chose bolder elements and graphic designs to make

    the biggest impact while creating multiple social areas

    that still feel comfortable for small groups.”

    Chevron-patterned wood planks ground the clubroom, where Boynton Billiards’ pool table provides hours of fun center stage. On one side, guests enjoy cocktails at the bar seated in Chaddock’s leather-clad stools, while across the way, Charleston Forge’s table is ready for a game of cards.

    right: Designed with cool finishes including quartzite countertops from Ceramic Matrix, and sleek stainless steel appliances from Ferguson, the kitchen still exudes a warm, welcoming vibe with plenty of room for family and friends.

    “It’s all in the details, from the floor to the ceilings,” the designer says. “ Combining different elements so they complement one another without competing is so important to achieve balance … everything cannot be a focal point.”

    An alluring space to entertain guests before and after dinner, the clubroom features a wrap-around sectional and a handsome pool table. A custom-designed bar incorporates decorative panels, a curved quartzite countertop and floating shelves to showcase dazzling accent pieces. “I wanted this intimate space to embody the classic ‘cocktails at five, billiards at seven’ feel,” the designer says.

    Scale and comfort are key in the open family room, where a built-in entertainment wall is designed with various textures and materials such as stainless steel and stained wood. Plush seating and an ottoman-style cocktail table introduce casual comfort inside, while glass walls open to include the open-air social areas beyond.

    Wow factors were not overlooked when Polimeni dreamed up her design for a state-of-the-art kitchen and the magnificent wine room nearby. The kitchen showcases two islands clad in stunning book-matched quartzite, gleaming stainless steel accents and a pair of sleek pendant lights that bring modern elegance to this streamlined culinary space. Sensational style continues in the climate-controlled wine room easily accessed via both the kitchen and dining area.

    “During this project, I found it very exciting to see the drawings and sketches of the designs come to life,” Polimeni says. “After having worked with Marty for more than 20 years, I knew he trusted my vision which allowed me to be very creative without hesitation.”

  • An intoxicating view, great food and excellent vino, the dining area with its captivating wine room is an oenophile’s dream come true. Hosted by Taylor King’s “Astoria” chairs, Century’s expansive table comfortably accommodates guests seated in plush side chairs from Jessica Charles.
