Finest Estate Home, Crespi Hicks Estate
Here is an architecturally significant home with one of the most important architectural pedigrees, on 25 acres, the largest estate property in the country, only eight miles from a downtown, arts district and airport. The original architect in 1939 was Maurice Fatio, voted New York's most popular architect in the 1920s, who designed estate homes in New York and Palm Beach for prominent families including the Vanderbilts and Huttons, and the renovation architect, Peter Marino, who is one of the nation's most accomplished architects, with projects across the country. The homeowners, along with Peter Marino, honored, and further refined, the powerful architecture and perfect proportions that Maurice Fatio was known for in New York and Palm Beach and are still celebrated today. This estate home features artisanship, materials and a site that cannot be replicated even if one had the resources and five or ten years to commit to a residential endeavor.
