ON THE MAR­KET

Palm Beach Daily News - - FRONT PAGE -

— with 4,718 square feet in­side and out — with agent Leanna Joan Fruin of En­gel & Volk­ers. The house is priced at $7.195 mil­lion, and the fur­ni­ture is avail­able through sep­a­rate ne­go­ti­a­tions. The mid-block res­i­dence oc­cu­pies a lot of nearly a half acre, about mid­way be­tween the Palm Beach Coun­try Club and the north­ern tip of the is­land.

The house is laid out in a “re­verse L” shape, with the liv­ing area just north of the foyer. Two guest suites, the fam­ily room, the kitchen and the garage ex­tend to the east.

West of the foyer is the mas­ter suite, and up­stairs, ac­cessed from a stair­way north of the kitchen, are the two new guest suites, one of which is now set up as an of­fice.

The pool is nes­tled in the crook of the L. The garage, mean­while, is ac­cessed via a drive­way along the east side of the house. “There’s also a cold plunge and out­door shower,” For­man adds, re­fer­ring to the spa filled with cold wa­ter.

In ad­di­tion to paint­ing the in­te­ri­ors white to lighten them up, For­man also re­moved all the shut­ters and re­placed ma­hogany floors with French oak. Win­dows and doors are fit­ted with hurricane-re­sis­tant glass. The bath­rooms also were up­dated.

“It’s like a brand-new house,” For­man says.

There are wall­pa­pered ac­cent walls, a wet bar and a sim­ple fire­place in the liv­ing room.

The kitchen fea­tures a beamed ceil­ing and cab­i­netry with some open shelv­ing. Car­rara mar­ble was used for coun­ter­tops and the back­splash, and ap­pli­ances have ei­ther stain­less steel fin­ishes or are in­te­grated into the cab­i­netry. Just ad­ja­cent is an eat­ing area set into a nook with win­dows and a built-in ban­quette.

In the mas­ter bed­room and bath­room, the ceil­ings are pitched, and the dress­ing room fea­tures built-in cab­i­netry. The mas­ter bath­room has a so-called “float­ing” van­ity, a soak­ing tub, mar­ble coun­ter­tops and a walk-in shower.

One of the other bed­rooms has built-in cab­i­netry, and the up­stairs of­fice has a bed built into a nook.

Pea­cock, mean­while, is plan­ning to stay on the North End, as he ap­pre­ci­ates the neigh­bor­hood, which has ac­cess to the lake­side bi­cy­cle trail.

The house also has ac­cess to a com­mu­nity beach ca­bana on the ocean.

The kitchen was re­con­fig­ured. Car­rara mar­ble was used for coun­ter­tops and the back­splash, and ap­pli­ances have ei­ther stain­less steel fin­ishes or are in­te­grated into the cab­i­netry.
