Estate of the Day: $20 Million Qui-Si-Sana in Palm Beach, Florida


$20 Million Qui-Si-Sana in Palm Beach, Florida 

This landmarked oceanfront residence built in 1921 was designed by renowned architect Marion Sims Wyeth for entrepreneur Earle Perry Charlton, one of the founders of the F.W. Woolworth Company. Qui-Si-Sana (“Here One Heals”) shares its name with the famous historic hotel on the island of Capri, and shows Italian influence in its Old World design that so perfectly complements Palm Beach’s balmy Mediterranean-like climate. Residing behind sculpted hedges on a prime corner property, this strikingly elegant residence interweaves its indoor and outdoor living spaces in a beautifully open courtyard plan surrounding a private garden terrace by the formal pool, opposite sprawling oceanside lawns. Four stately fireplaces, pecky cypress paneling, Cuban tile floors, and filigreed ironwork gates add romantic warmth to the impressive interior décor. Lushly serene in its spectacular oceanfront setting, this is a very significant historic property in Palm Beach’s exclusive estate section.
