Description

Palm Beach houses and gardens resplendent with old grandeur yet wonderfully alive for today are the subject of this elegant volume.

With its lush gardens, palm tree-lined promenades, and romantic homes, Palm Beach has long been considered a playground for the rich and famous. Resplendent with old grandeur, Palm Beach houses and gardens are the subject of this elegant volume, detailing the meticulous restorations of thirty-eight grand houses and public buildings in this exclusive resort town.

Palm Beach: An Architectural Heritage, serves as an inspiration by featuring thirty-eight classic houses and other buildings that have been restored or preserved with a high degree of sensitivity and taste, and which have won the coveted Ballinger Award--presented by the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach to commemorate a restoration or renovation that best exemplifies the traditions of Palm Beach's original houses and the architects who designed them.

From Casa de Leoni to Junglewood, Villa Artemis to Las Palmas, the houses of Palm Beach are fantasies of splendor inspiring dreams of fine living in the sun amid beautiful, fragrant gardens. Public and private structures designed by Architects Addison Mizner, Joseph Urban, Marion Sims Wyeth and Maurice Fatio are included as well as those by less recognized architects and builders whose feats of imagination rival those of the most celebrated professionals.
