Inside a Modern Home amid a Mediterranean-Style Enclave in West Palm Beach

El Cid is an enclave in West Palm Beach consisting of many 1920s Moorish-influenced architecture homes that have barrel-tiled roofs and ironwork railings. Named after a legendary Medieval Spanish knight, the community lives up to its bold moniker. The enclave is located along Flagler Drive which winds along the Intracoastal Waterway and where streets with Spanish names like Granada and Valencia radiate.

Exploring this Modern Mediterranean-Inspired Property

A property built in 2020 sited on a nearly 19,000 square-foot lot with a good portion facing the Intracoastal Waterway looks comfortably at home amid its more historic Mediterranean Revival-style neighbors. In building this modern home, the owners saw to it that its architecture references the classic details of the landmark El Cid properties adopting a clean contemporary style. 

The property has all the amenities of modern living. It has a 52-foot lap pool with a heater and chiller, a whole-house gas generator, an elevator, a state-of-the-art security system, and a host of smart-home controls. Among the things these controls can do are manage the home systems such as raising and lowering sunshades from anywhere in the world using a smartphone. Since Flagler Drive faces east toward the Intracoastal, the house has unimpeded views of the water from almost every room.

The living room on the main level is filled with light. It has a coffered ceiling and white oak flooring that opens to a terrace with motorized screens that offer a view of the pool and waterway. The dining room, with its long windows, enhances the views and catches soft breezes off the water.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream. It has a striking stone-topped island, and stainless steel appliances from Wolf, Miele, and Sub-Zero. There’s an induction range and gas stove and two dishwashers. A summer kitchen with a Lynx gas grill and rotisserie is just outside. In the adjacent casual dining alcove, one could enjoy the views of a charming maze garden designed by celebrated landscape architect Keith Williams.

The first-floor primary bedroom is an airy refuge. It has a soaring cathedral ceiling and French doors that open to a waterfront terrace with a fire pit. Beyond the spacious dressing room and marble shower is a paradise – a fenced Zen garden with a pebble-floored outdoor shower, a bubbling fountain, and a shady buttonwood tree.  

The stairway to the second floor leads out onto an expansive terrace. There are two guest suites. The first has a pitched ceiling and a full bath, while the second, currently used as a study room overlooks the water. A storage room adjacent to the guest rooms can be utilized as a small bedroom or home office.

There is also a guest house located beside the residence. It can be configured as an office, gym, or a bedroom with a full bath. A three-bay garage is at the end of the motor court. Equipped with an electric vehicle charger, and two lifts, it can accommodate up to five vehicles.     

Flagler Drive, where the home is located, provides easy access to Palm Beach, minutes away across the Royal Palm Bridge. Palm Beach is renowned for its many attractions including the Norton Museum of Art, abundant parks and tennis courts, a new public golf course designed by Gil Hanse, world-class restaurants, and excellent public and private schools.
