That description tells the tale of Stephen Collins’ hottest job, his co-operative penthouse, No. 808, in the 2774 South Ocean complex on the South Close of Palm Seaside. 

When Collins retired and moved to Florida from Boston in 2007, he explains, he began a cycle of buying properties that he redecorated, lived in and later resold in “turnkey” situation, completely ready for go-in by the consumer. 

And when he purchased his South Stop penthouse in 2018, the oceanview unit came with an unusual but significantly-appreciated housewarming present. 

At one end of the living room, the front door of the penthouse has a wet bar on one side and a space that once served as a dining area on the other.

“A good friend of mine, who has labored with (Palm Beach interior designer) Joseph Pubillones for several years, informed me, ‘I am likely to give you Joseph for a day as a gift.” 

On the appointed working day, Collins and Pubillones laid out a approach, which before long grew to be multi-phased and ended up executed to the ‘nth’ degree. 

Pubillones’ contributions went far beyond the scope of that initial consultation. Work progressed, and the apartment was, literally, camera-ready when it was photographed for Up coming Luxury, a trade-journal.
