Inspired by studying the elegance and opulence of Europe’s sublime, iconic villas and historic palaces, the Queen’s Gambit,  exudes the refined architectural details and distinctive interior that define the best of the best landmarks. Each column and every Corinthian tree symbolize the gameboard of chess from Queens at the entrance to Kings out back, plus pawns crafted into the balusters. The game of chess literally comes to life inside this meticulously built and designed regal estate, perched upon the glittering Atlantic.  

 To complete the gameboard, surrounding medjool palms serve as bishops while triangle palms represent knights – all underscored by the largest “artisan” installed “migration” of hand carved, cobalt-tile turtles, moving toward the beach from the entry gates and onto the shoreline via the driveway, entry portico, living room, and infinity pool.

 This crown jewel of an Italian-style estate has been expertly built and detailed via the unrivaled vision of chess enthusiastic Frank J Russo and brought into actuality by his artist-builder brother, Joseph Russo.
