The Ham-and-Cheese House at 920 South Ocean Blvd is the Newest Ballinger Award Recipient

Located in Palm Beach’s renowned Estate Section, the landmarked Fatio estate, known by locals as the “Ham-and-Cheese House,” is the 2016 winner of the Preservation Society’s prestigious Ballinger Award. The current owners are no strangers to a beautiful remodel, having previously renovated another landmarked home located on Palm Beach island. Their experience surely came in handy as they made the beautiful oceanfront estate their own, all while preserving the home’s historic appeal.  Darrell Hofheinz writes in his column in the Palm Beach Daily News on December 11th, 2016: “The project included replacing the roof, installing impact-resistant windows and glass doors; transforming the look of the landscape and courtyard; adding an elevator; and replacing the beachfront cabana, which is accessed by a 165-foot tunnel under the coastal road. In all, the house has more than 16,000 square feet, not including the basement, tunnel and cabana.” Congratulations to the owners and all the professionals involved this exceptional renovation.
