A whimsical Florida mansion stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to intra-coastal waterways lists for $21.5 million


A colorful beachfront home on South Florida’s exclusive Jupiter Island has gone on the market for $21.5 million.

The roughly 6,200-square-foot home featuring Art Deco-inspired architecture and a playful pop art color palette sits on more than 1.5 acres of waterfront property, according to Corcoran agents Susan Turner and Joanne Wagner, who listed the residence on Monday.

“It stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal, making it a true trophy property,” Ms. Wagner said. “It’s very unusual. There are maybe 10 of them on Jupiter Island, but really in all of Florida they are hard to find.


The six-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom abode was remodeled in 2016 by area-based architect Scott Hughes, the agent added. The house is currently decorated in bold colors, with an emphasis on a bright ocean-inspired blue, but “take it all off and it’s really a white palette.”

Indeed, it has a double height living room with marble floors and a wall of windows overlooking the ocean, as shown in the photos. A family room on the other side leads to a balcony, and there is a floating glass staircase leading to the second level.

The kitchen steps away from the white walls with a whimsical silverware print wallpaper and the countertops are blue marble. There is also a double set of commercial grade appliances, as well as wine storage.

Other features include a guest suite with separate entrance and kitchen, dock with 40,000 pound boat lift, cabana, summer kitchen and three car garage.

The courts were designed by Tyler Nielsen, a resident of Palm Beach, Florida, Ms Wagner said.

“He brought specimens of rare trees and plants,” she said. “He added all these water features and paths and conversation areas so you can bring a glass of wine outside and sit and talk or relax.”


South Florida has proven to be a popular destination for shoppers during the Covid-19 pandemic, with demand far outstripping supply. Jupiter Island is no exception, Ms. Wagner noted.

“It’s just amazing…we have around 500 homes on the island and on average we have around 25 on the market,” she said. “Right now we have four, and they don’t last. We just closed one out of two contracts today.

The property last traded in 2014 for $9.2 million, according to PropertyShark records. The owner did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
