A Marion Syms Wyeth Palm Beach Mansion for Sale

Marion Syms Wyeth was one of Palm Beach's most influential architects, so I always get excited when one of his homes goes on the market. Located on one of the most desirable in-town streets just south of Worth Avenue, 14 Golfview Road is a fine example of Wyeth's work.

Wyeth arrived in Palm Beach in 1919 and spent the next 60 years designing numerous mansions and projects including Mar-A-Lago and the Norton Museum of Art. His work is similar to the Spanish style of Addison Mizner, another legendary Palm Beach architect, yet it is reflective of his French training. Moorish ceilings, iron-grilled windows and balconies, courtyards, and tiled roofs are all signature Wyeth design features.

Built in 1928, this quintessential Palm Beach home retains original details including wooden ceilings in the living and dining rooms, pecky cypress doors, and gracious staircase. I am also in love with the murals which are so Palm Beach Chic.


















This architectural gem is priced at $7.95M and features 6,229 square feet, four bedrooms, five and a half baths, and an elevator... all nestled within a romantic garden setting within walking distance of my favorite Palm Beach haunts. Click here to learn more. Now I'm off to buy a Lottery ticket!

  2. What a delightful home and those Moorish ceilings . . . . Mizner is known throughout the country, but I have never heard of Wyeth. The owners seem to have done a great job taking the serious architecture and creating a welcoming home.
