The Villa Capricco is beautifully situated on a rise overlooking Flagler Drive and the intracoastal waterway. The house has the look and feel of a European Villa, with it's terraces, fountains and charming architecture, both inside an out. The house has 12 foot ceilings with stenciled beams, large arched windows, nine rooms, including three bedrooms, two baths with a bonus room completely furnished in period antiques. The estate also consists of a guest cottage which is currently Leased and a European style swimming pool available.
In the 1920s, during prohibition, the house was used for running liquor from the islands to serve the clientele on Palm Beach. A trolley system in the garage allowed the boats to unload the liquor, where it was then, transferred to bottles and delivered by truck to Bradley's Casino in Palm Beach. Colonel Bradley's employees, dressed in tuxedos, carrying "Tommy Guns", provided the security. Needless to say, the casino was never raided.
The Estate is on Flagler Drive, which runs along the Intracoastal Waterway. A short distance South is Curry Park with it's walking and biking paths. You are five minutes to Palm Beach, the Ocean, Worth Avenue, the Palm Beach Yacht Club, The Four Arts Gardens, Gallery and Library. You are located ten minutes from Downtown West Palm Beach and all it has to offer, such as the Norton Museum, Kravis Center of the Performing Arts, City Place and The Convention Center. If you prefer to shop, you are 15 minutes to Palm Beach Gardens Mall and The Palm Beach Outlet Mall.
