|Of interest are the stepped windows on the staircase with columns, the arched windows, Barrel tiled roof, the covered loggia with what looks like pecky Cyprus columns.|
|The quilted tile floor and open wood ceiling....gorgeous|
|I would give this house a more old world Spanish look if it was mine.|
|More of a British Colonial look than I would expect.|
|Private Beach of course...|
|Simple with it's white stucco and pretty windows.|
|As beautiful now as when it was built|
To indulge my taste for Spanish Revival houses, I like to peruse online real estate. Palm Beach in the early 1900's was "The" place for Spanish architecture in Florida. Addison Mizner is one of my favorite architects of this era. If you have a cool 22 Million, you can purchase this home of historical significance. Only if you promise not to alter an of the original details though.......
It is listed HERE with Sotheby's. Here's how the house is described in the listing.
Mizner's Louwana Oceanfront Masterpiece
Quite possibly the most romantic period oceanfront mansion available in Palm B
each today, held by the same family since it's design by Addison Mizner in 1919. One of the last Great Houses of Palm Beach, a legend of architectural and historic significance. This majestically picturesque 10-bedroom villa sprawls over 1.5 acres featuring 150 feet of idyllic direct private beachfront. Exquisitely preserved in museum condition. Pool, Tennis Court, Beach Cabana. An exceedingly important and rare offering.
If that house is too rich for your blood, check out this charming 1926 property on the market for $2,749,000.00. The listing found HERE describes it as follows.
"Phipps Plaza Mediterranean style two story home designed by famed architect, M
arion Sims Wyeth featuring 3BR/3.5BA, fireplace, elevator, striking high ceilings, spacious eat in kitchen."
And....if you want to see the most expensive real estate listing in Palm Beach, this is it $59,000,000.00 Home.
