Patrick Park Residence
Jupiter, FL



Landscape Architecture Firm: Lucido & Associates
Owner: Park Corporation
Project Landscape Architect:

Lucido & Associates

Project Category: Residential
Project Description:

A stunning estate. An accomplished and attentive homeowner. And a backdrop where a respect for elegance and the environment harmonize. With such impressive elements surrounding the Park Residence renovation, exceeding expectations would present the greatest challenge. A tireless philanthropist determined to fashion an inviting and memorable setting for fundraisers, the homeowner sought out the landscape architects when transforming his ho-hum, estate size spec home into a spectacular showpiece. Even for his neighborhood—the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Florida, a community complete with a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and multi-million dollar estates —the end result was remarkable.
