A colorful oceanfront home on South Florida’s exclusive Jupiter Island has hit the market for $21.5 million.
The approximately 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 extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal, which makes it a real trophy property,” Ms. Wagner said.
“That’s highly unusual. There are maybe 10 on Jupiter Island, but really in all of Florida, they are hard to find.”
The six-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom abode was renovated in 2016 by architect Scott Hughes, who is based in the area, the agent added. The home is currently decorated in bold colors—with an emphasis on a bright blue inspired by the ocean—but “remove all that and it’s really a white palette.”
Indeed, it features a double-height living room with marble floors and a wall of windows looking out on the ocean, listing photos show. A family room on the other side leads to a balcony, and there’s a floating glass staircase leading to the second level.
The kitchen strays from the white walls with whimsical wallpaper printed with silverware, and the counters are blue marble. There’s also a double set of commercial-grade appliances, plus wine storage.
Other features include a guest suite with a separate entrance and a kitchen, a dock with a 40,000-pound boat lift, a cabana, a summer kitchen and a three-car garage.
The grounds were designed by Tyler Nielsen, a Palm Beach, Florida, local, Ms. Wagner said.
“He brought in specimen trees and rare plants,” she said. “He added all these water features, paths and conversation areas so you can bring a glass of wine outside and sit and talk or relax.”
South Florida has proven a hot destination for buyers during the Covid-19 pandemic, with demand far outstripping supply. Jupiter Island is no exception, Ms. Wagner noted.
“It’s just amazing…we have about 500 houses on the island and on average, we usually have about 25 on the market,” she said. “Right now we have four, and they don’t last. We just went into contract on two today.”
The property last traded in 2014 for $9.2 million, according to records with PropertyShark. The owner did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
