Lavish 40-chandelier mansion hits market


A Palm Beach Gardens mansion with old world Italian details has been listed for sale at $30 million, a price tag that makes it the most expensive listing in the city and one that rivals even posh Palm Beach.

The 16,000-square-foot home, dubbed Palazzo Grande, has six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, a 75-guest ballroom and 40 chandeliers, including 30 Czechoslovakian crystal chandeliers.

Coldwell Banker agent William P.D. Pierce announced the listing Tuesday. Pierce, a luxury-home specialist, is also the agent for the $139 million Le Palais Royal mansion in Broward County.

“As you enter Palazzo Grande, it’s as if you have been transported from Palm Beach to an old world Italian villa,” Pierce said in a press release.  “The level of details, exquisite materials and custom design is refreshing and very unique for a modern home. The beauty and craftsmanship of old world combined with modern amenities make this property one of a kind in today’s market.”

Palm Beach County property records show the Palazzo Grande, 5435 Sea Biscuit Road, is owned by John and Amanda Termotto. It was built in 2005.

At $30 million, the property isn’t the most expensive listing in Palm Beach County, but it’s up there. The priciest property in Palm Beach County is the $59 million 89 Middle Road in Palm Beach.

According to the Palazzo Grande press release:

The façade features a portico with Corinthian columns that was inspired by the east façade of the Louvre in Paris. The entire exterior of Palazzo Grande is faced with cast-stone marble veneer, an architectural surface material extensively used throughout Europe.

The kitchen features limestone walls, cherry cabinets, a center island with granite countertop, two pantries, two Sub-Zero refrigerators, two Bosch dishwashers, a 60-inch Wolf range, a custom hood and Venetian-style ceiling with an attached breakfast room.

The dining room is a replica of Venice’s Galleria Academia, featuring a ceiling adorned with 80 hand-carved cherubs. Other rooms include an office, billiard room, den, rotunda library, loggia, lounge and laundry room with two Bosch washing machines and two dryers. A separate guest house features a kitchen, bathroom and laundry room with the same quality of finishings and appliances as the main residence.
