It’s an illustrative word, but most realtors unfortunately shy away from describing property as a “compound” in their listings. But if one had to hole up in seclusion, this $17.9 million Palm Beach estate has everything for a luxury escape. The recently remodeled 12,700 square-foot mansion was originally designed by famed architect Maurice Fatio in1940. Finished in polished oak and French marble, the 7-bed/10.5-bath Colonial home has gala-sized rooms and patios, chef-designed kitchen, a guest cottage and private boat dock. [via realtor]
