AUCTION - No Reserve: December 13th.

Hailed as "one of America's great estates" and "the finest home built in Florida in the past 50 years" this stunning new estate in beautiful Vero Beach, Florida is now completed and available for immediate sale.

Known as Tranquillita Del Mare, this unparalleled property features nearly 7 acres of direct oceanfront land in the acclaimed "Estate Section" of Vero Beach, Florida.  

This new estate is one of Florida's very largest oceanfront properties and is nearly unprecedented in South Florida. The walled and gated compound pays homage to the famed villas of the Mediterranean with authentic touches of the Cote d'Azur and has been masterfully designed by noted architect Thomas Hoos.

With the palatial Great House as its centerpiece, the property boasts combined air-conditioned living spaces totaling 27,588 SF with 18 bedrooms (Master and Guest); 27 total bathrooms (full, half and cabana) over multiple structures including two private Guest Houses and a Carriage House/Caretaker's Cottage.  Total square footage under roof is 40,795 SF and includes significant outdoor living areas and a Motorcourt complex for 10 cars (A/C). 

Exquisite details create a rich tapestry with lavish interior entertaining areas and intimate retreats blending seamlessly with stunning outdoor venues.  Grand view-filled loggias give way to sweeping lawns with luxuriant gardens, fountains, mature oaks, and specimen palms.  The oceanfront resort pool is spectacular with the most up-to-date features and amenities. With 315 feet on the Atlantic Ocean, the serene grounds also highlight a wide dune-fringed sandy beach, dune walk, walking gardens and cart paths throughout.

The allure of Tranquillita Del Mare is immeasurable and irresistible.  Not only is this the largest and finest property in Vero Beach, it is also one of the world's great estates, a place where life is lived to the very fullest.

Resplendent in a wealth of elegant details, this stately villa features handmade mahogany windows and doors with hurricane-impact glass and boasts solid concrete and steel construction clad in solid coral and hand-trowelled stucco. Every major indoor room is complemented by an outdoor room of equal splendor, many accented with fireplaces.

Great care was taken to choose only authentic materials, hardwoods and stones, some reclaimed and hundreds of years old. Highly energy and water efficient, including geo-thermal systems, the estate was critically designed for a minimum of maintenance needs and is a true generational home that will become a lasting legacy for one very fortunate family.    

As you enter the main floor of the great house, a groin-vaulted gallery introduces the dramatic ocean-side salon with French limestone floors, solid carved limestone fireplace, antique cypress-beamed cathedral ceiling, and French doors to the outdoor living loggia with double-sided fireplace.  Oceanfront loggias also open from the magnificent cypress-paneled library with floor-to-ceiling bookcases and the formal dining room embellished in French boiserie, with both also featuring French limestone fireplaces.  The climate-controlled wine cave is finished in pecky cypress and stone.  Rich cypress paneling encases the expansive club room, leading to a loggia by the courtyard pool, complete with full-service bar and entertainment center.  Designed by a professional chef, the epicurean's kitchen features custom hand-made cabinetry, Calcutta gold marble counters, a mahogany-topped island, and the finest appliances. 

There is also a chef's desk and butler's pantry with all service and staff needs.  Ocean views sweep through the breakfast area and family room with beamed ceiling, a Moorish arch, custom entertainment area, and French doors to another outdoor loggia with fully equipped summer kitchen.  A luxurious guest master suite enjoys its own ocean-side loggia.

On the second floor, romantic oceanfront balconies open from the dual grand master suites ensconced in their own front-to-back wing affording tremendous privacy.  The spacious master chambers are complemented by a remarkable sitting room with limestone fireplace, a morning kitchen, walk-in wardrobes, and sumptuous his-and-her onyx-and-marble baths.  This level offers additional bedroom suites with oceanfront loggias, full-service exercise facility, game room and a multi-million dollar home theater unlike any ever constructed in the area.

A third floor offers amazing ocean vistas and multiple en-suite bedrooms flanking private living areas with kitchenette. 

The two Guest Houses are also direct oceanfront and open to loggias and the resort-style pool. These two 2-story Guest Houses each contain a living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and private garages.

The Carriage House features 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, 2.5 baths and a private garage as well as balconies and garden terraces.

Throughout the estate, all levels are accessed via multiple staircases and four (4) commercial-grade wood-paneled elevators. 

Few people allow themselves to experience living on such a fine scale. Tranquillita Del Mare offers you and your family the very, very best in Florida oceanfront living.
