The owner of the landmarked, lakefront estate at 800 S. County Rd. is moving forward with renovations after litigation forced a pause last year. The Venetian-style home designed by Addison Mizner and built in 1923 is at a low elevation and vulnerable to flooding from the Lake Worth Lagoon.

Following a long-functioning dispute with neighbors virtually derailed her efforts to elevate and restore an historic household on South County Road, Ann Desruisseaux is going ahead with renovation plans.

Desruisseaux, who is co-trustee of the Desruisseaux land trust that acquired the Venetian-type household for $24 million in January 2020, acquired unanimous acceptance from the town’s  Landmarks Preservation Commission final week to make a wide range of modifications to the lakefront estate that was designed by Addison Mizner and constructed in 1923.

People variations, which involve the removal and relocation of a variety of windows and doors as nicely as other additions and reductions, are aspect of a comprehensive renovation program that calls for a partial demolition, elevation, additions and a whole restoration of the low-lying house.

The dwelling, at 800 S. County Road, is susceptible to flooding from the Lake Truly worth Lagoon.
