Marion Sims Wyeth’s Tre Fontane before its renovation

Posted On: 02-07-2016

By Darrell Hofheinz

A few months before the Hans bought Tre Fontane, its interiors looked remarkably different, decorated in a traditional style by former owner Jon Stryker, who owned the house for 16 years.

Tre Fontane was the focal point of Stryker’s 2.6-acre estate, which he sold in May 2014 after listing it for sale with real estate agents Paulette Koch and Dana Koch of the Corcoran Group. The property was bought by part-time Palm Beacher Peter Wood and Royalton Group, a British homebuilder. Wood, who was developing plans for the ocean side of the 2.6-acre property, agreed to sell Tre Fontane separately to the Hans in August. The couple’s real estate agent, Brown Harris Stevens’ Ben Stein, struck an off-market deal with Wood’s agent, John O. Pickett III, who is today also affiliated with Brown Harris Stevens.

Wood, meanwhile, is building himself a new oceanfront residence just east of the Hans’ property on land where singer Jimmy Buffett and his wife, Jane, once owned a home. And the vacant seaside lot next door has been put up for sale with plans for a house there already approved by the town.
