Bion translates to “believe it or not.” Yes, this beautifully appointed, new construction transitional waterfront island home sits on the former Ripley’s Believe-it-or-Not estate on Bion Island. In addition to many examples of elephant, pig, and wildlife themes throughout this home, this jet-setter downsize features an extraordinary collection of unique and interesting furniture, art, decorative accessories, silver, and more. Highlights in the outstanding downsize include:

— a majestic Mason & Hamlin ebonized baby grand piano
— an amazing Aesthetic Movement G. Correale & Sons burled walnut and satinwood inlaid pool table
— an outstanding pair of life-size cast bronze buck and doe sculptures
— a fine antique William Gale & Son sterling silver footed compote (the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art has an almost identical exemplar)
— an unusual & impressive cast bronze elephant throne
— two 19th century Grand Tour bronze sculptures (one of Atlas, the other Napoleon)

Happy bidding!
