Country Life - October 28, 2004

The source of much of the architectural detail for this Italianate mansion on Palm Beach, Florida - newly completed for a computer billionaire - was the Oxford-based Symm Group, leading craftsmen in stone and timber since 1815. The house started life in 1930, designed by the society architect Maurice Fatio, as the residence of Joseph Widener, and has recently been totally reconstructed (with substantial additions and outbuildings) by New York architects Fairfax and Sammons. Symm & Co. provided all the joinery for the staircase in the new tower, and its sister company Within the Symm Group, APS Masonry made the dressings from coral stone shipped from the Dominican Republic.
