Transport back in time to the charming 1920's era when Hobe Sound was named ''Picture City''. French developer Leslie DeVor came to the area to participate in the growth of the new big movie location where Devor built a French Tudor for his bride. This home has remained nearly unchanged while the world around it has moved on. When driving down the winding mature tree lined driveway, you instantly start to feel the simplicity of past times. Two acres of secret paths run around the estate making it easy to get lost in the beauty of this property. Follow the Vanilla Planifolia to the coquina stoned pool and chickee hut where you can spend your days cooling off and relaxing to music watching the butterflies pass by. Take your friends and family down the path, past the massive banyan tree,...leading to the fountain where all secret paths lead and enjoy a game of bocce ball under the palms or engage in conversation in the secret and heart gardens. This estate expansive outdoor living areas are enough to impress anyone, but indoors are just as charming and impressive. Inside this home you will find impeccably maintained wood ceiling beams, imperial staircase, and stone fireplace. No detail goes unnoticed from the sconces to the glass grenade style fire extinguishers. Host a wine tasting in your temperature-controlled wine cellar that is located down a secret passage. When the time comes you want to explore what Hobe Sound has to offer, you will not have to travel far! With such little congestion in Hobe Sound it is only minutes to the public beach, multiple golf courses/clubs, parks, and "downtown" area where you'll find many locally owned business including tasty restaurants and pubs. A few more minutes further you can find the nightlife of Palm Beach County. There are also 3 airports located 30 miles or less for those quick weekend trips to your Florida getaway home.
