463 Sapphire Drive

Of the 13 original early-1920s homes still standing in Sapphire Shores, just south of the Ringling Museum, our panelists anointed this Sapphire Drive gem the most beautiful. They praised its wonderfully well-preserved details, including its iron lanterns and elaborate family crest over the front door. The salmon exterior color of Nagirroc, as it was named by its original owner, Charles E. Corrigan (spell his name backwards to see why), recalls Mediterranean mansions designed in South Florida in the ’20s by the legendary Addison Mizner.
