Casa Della Porta in Palm Beach, a landmarked home designed by a prominent local architect in the 1920s, was reportedly just traded in an off-the-market sale for $19.4 million.

The estate, at 195 Via Del Mar, was sold by Houston energy executive William M. Kallop. He first purchased the home in 2009 for $13.9 million. A group titled the VDM CDP Revocable Trust was the buyer, a publication reported.

The city gave Casa Della Porta landmark protection in 1990. It was designed by Maurice Fatio, who moved to Palm Beach in 1925 and designed a series of well-regarded homes.

This particular estate, built in 1928, was fashioned from quarry coral stone, with Roman arches throughout and and a large central courtyard featuring a fountain. Its name comes from its Florentine Romanesque-style front entry, which was carved over a period of six months by Italian stone cutters, the Palm Beach Daily News reported.

Kallop founded the Offshore International Group, which engages in oil exploration and drilling. He sold the company in 2009 for $900 million to the Korea National Oil Corp. and Ecopetrol, the publication reported. [Palm Beach Daily News]Sean Stewart-Muniz
