Palatial estate on five-acre parcel in Southwest Ranches

Set on a sprawling, five-acre parcel in the gated community of Landmark Ranch Estates in the Broward County town of Southwest Ranches, the palatial, 24,000-square-foot home will be larger in width than an American football field. Priced at $10 million and known as Palazzo Paradiso, the Mediterranean-style, resort-like residence is expected to break ground in the fourth quarter of 2014 and will feature 15,000 square feet of living space as well as eight bedrooms, inclusive of two private guest quarters, nine full baths and two half-baths.

Planned in collaboration with designer and builder William Tunney and landscape architect Krent Wieland, Palazzo Paradiso was crafted in the spirit of famed American resort architect Addison Mizner, reflecting an elegant Mediterranean revival style while expressing contemporary charm. The estate will offer plush outdoor amenities, including an eight-car garage; 9,000 square feet of covered outdoor space; a central courtyard with a fireplace, fountain and lush foliage; a grand pavilion overlooking the pool; and an intimate meditation garden with a private trellis and koi pond. Palazzo Paradiso will additionally have full-size tennis and basketball courts, and Mediterranean fountains flanking monitored gates at the property’s entrance.

 Landmark Ranch Estates, developed by Landmark Custom Homes, is the only gated enclave in Southwest Ranches. Each high-end estate in the development is situated on approximately two- to five-acre sites in a country-like setting. The sprawling town of Southwest Ranches is family-oriented, supports an equestrian lifestyle, and offers a desirably close proximity to top private and public schools, entertainment venues, government centers, shops and restaurants. The area is also nearby Interstate 75 and Interstate 595, offering easy access to Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
