A historical Palm Beach mansion built by Palm Beach architect Howard Major in 1928 has sold for $15 million. The mansion covers 10,501 SF spread over 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and 2 half-bathrooms as well as an additional 3 bedrooms for staff. The home also features a chef’s kitchen, butler pantry, a library, exercise room, an elevator, a two-car garage and a saltwater pool. The home is one of the most magnificent historical homes in Palm Beach, located at 124 Via Bethesda. Howard Major designed the mansion in a “Creole” French Classical design with ornate features including a coral block coquina exterior quarried from Cuba, walnut paneling from a 17th century French chateau, and marble floors from the early 1600s. The home was listed with Ashley Mcintosh of Douglas Elliman and the buyer was represented by Chris Leavitt of Douglas Elliman.
“124 Via Bethesda represents one of the few remaining historic gems left in Palm Beach County. My buyer searched high and low for a classic home featuring the old world elegance that Palm Beach is known for and very hard to replicate,” said Chris Leavitt of Douglas Elliman who represented the buyer.
