Million-dollar listings: Brian C. Wille and Robin A. Remick have sold their landmark house built in 1939 at 315 Tangier Ave. to private-jet entrepreneur Guy Endzweig and his wife, Caroline.
A Palm Beach couple whose 1930s-era house earned landmark protection while they owned it has sold the property for a recorded $6.2 million — more than two years after they listed 315 Tangier Ave. for sale.
Via a deed recorded Monday, husband-and-wife Brian C. Wille and Renee Remick sold their homesteaded house designed by noted society architect John L. Volk.
The couple had paid a recorded $4.76 million for the property in 2009, and it was granted landmark protection in 2014. A restoration by the previous owners won the house the 2007 Robert I. Ballinger Award for historic preservation, bestowed by the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach.
Wille and Remick sold the property to Caroline and Guy Endzweig, who own no other property in their names in Palm Beach County, a records search showed.
In 2015, Guy Endzweig co-founded a New York City-based private jet charter business named V2 Jets, according to an online biographical sketch.
On a lot of about a third of an acre, the North End house has five bedrooms and 6,341 square feet of living space, inside and out. It’s the second house east of the lakefront and stands about a half-mile south of the Palm Beach Country Club.
Corcoran Group agents Dana Koch and Paulette Koch listed the house for sale at $7.495 million in May 2018 and later dropped the price to just under $6.9 million, according to the multiple listing service. Dana Koch said he had no comment about the sale, and the sellers couldn’t be reached.
Broker Simon Isaacs of Simon Isaacs Real Estate handled the buyers’ side. He and his clients declined to comment.
The house was restored by the interior designers who sold the house in 2009 — Christopher Drake and the late Lee Bierly.
It features a prominent front porch — with a second-floor veranda above — and two-story columns with Corinthian-style details.
“John Volk had gone on the set of ‘Gone With the Wind’ right before he designed this house,” Murphy told members of the Landmarks Preservation Commission in 2013 when they were compiling a list of properties eligible for landmarking.
The home’s architecture combines elements of the Neo-Classical Revival style but they were adapted by Volk, according to landmarks consultant Emily Stillings. In a report to the landmarks board, Stillings wrote that Volk created a home in the “Southern Colonial” style, which merges Neo-Classical Revival with Early Colonial.

Extensive gardens surround the house, and the rear patio and pool area is suited for entertaining, according to Corcoran’s sales description. The listing described a “fabulous kitchen/breakfast/beamed family room accessing the brick outdoor loggia and summer kitchen. This gracious property on a large lot embodies the best of Palm Beach’s past and present.”
Wile is an attorney and former partner at the Kostelanetz & Fink law firm in New York. His wife also is an attorney.
Wille and Remick last week closed on the purchase of a four-bedroom house in Palm Beach Gardens, courthouse records show. They bought the property at 12149 Plantation Way in Old Palm Golf Club for a recorded $3.08 million. Agent Wiliam T. Roselle of NV Realty Group was on the buyers’ side, according to the MLS. Agents Geraldine Stanko and Dory Faxon represented the sellers, Mark and Susan Solomon Auerbach.
