A West Indies-style house is coming to Indian Road in Palm Beach.
The two-story residence at 300 Indian Road is owned by private-equity specialist David Ferguson and his wife, Kathleen, of New York City, who paid $1.93 million for the property, according to the Palm Beach Post.
Last week, the Architectural Commission gave a thumbs-up to plans by architect Roger Janssen of Dailey Janssen Architects in West Palm Beach.
“I’d call it an eclectic Island Colonial, if I had to name it,” Janssen said of the 5,757-square-foot house.
Among the architectural elements is a corner structure housing the dining room designed to resemble a buttery, an outbuilding with a ziggurat-style roof peculiar to Bermudan architecture. “It’s a nostalgic feature,” Janssen said. [PBP] – Christopher Cameron
