The William Carnegie Estate, 1923


Following in Addison Mizner’s popular ornamented Mediterranean Revival style that defined the Florida coast throughout much of the 1920s, Jack Yates’ design for William Carnegie is a prime example of grand waterfront living. Colloquially known as ‘Lucindia,’ a contraction of the names of St. Lucie and of the Indian River, Lucindia has 222′ of water frontage at 450′ feet deep, the 2.2 acre estate is a prominent fixture in the small Town of Sewall’s Point. The 8,192 square foot main house has grand rooms. Large Palladian windows provide ample light into the grand ballroom which has oversized Cypress beams of intricately carved period-revival from end to end. A Mezzanine walk spans that the great room to the master suite gives a bird’s eye view of the 22-foot high room. Old-growth mahogany flooring blocks in the foyer add an additional layer of expert old-world craftsmanship. Lucindia has a pool, five fireplaces, formal dining room, a three car garage, air conditioning configured in five zones, an ice cream parlor, art/hobby room, a heated pool, waterfall and a guest house at an elevation of 35′ above sea level with private wide water views. Additionally, the verdant 2.2 acre site has many established fruit trees and well-developed gardens. The town of Sewall’s Point on Florida’s east coast, a peninsula of land between the St. Lucie and Indian Rivers, one mile west of the Atlantic Ocean at the St. Lucie Inlet, four miles east of Stuart, Florida, and twenty-eight miles due north of Palm Beach.
