March 10, 2020 – Illustrated Properties, a member of The Keyes Family of Companies, completed the $15 million sale of Il Santuario, the largest and most luxurious home in Sailfish Point. The 17,000-square-foot, two-story mansion sits on 2 exquisite acres and has 280 feet of direct ocean frontage with captivating sunrise and sunset exposures.
Lynn B. Telling, a Top Producer and Luxury Specialist with Illustrated, was the exclusive listing agent for the property.
The seller is a leading Florida homebuilder whose current project is Bonnette Hunt Club, an exclusive community of just 24 homes in nearby Palm Beach Gardens. Telling and Illustrated are also exclusively marketing the Bonnette project.
A trust in the name of Willis J. and Reba J. Johnson purchased Il Santuario. Willis Johnson is the billionaire founder of Copart, a California-based company that auctions damaged automobiles.
Telling closed the sale on Feb. 26.
“Il Santuario presented a prime opportunity for the individual who wants a completely renovated oceanfront estate with the privacy and security of one of Florida’s most exclusive country club communities,” said Telling. “We are thrilled with the outcome of our marketing campaign to showcase this unparalleled property.”
