Venetian Peruvian Palm Beachian

Located on Peruvian Avenue, behind Mizner Courts, this Venetian villa was built in 1967. The part of the house shown nestles up to the sidewalk as if it and the street were a canal of aqueous matter. No gondolas, though.

Oh, and it is on the market for just a shade less than $12,000,000.

Order in the Court

Via Mizner Court (yards), that is. A few more sketches on a lovely day in May, ogling the white planes, cool shadows, rustic trims and tiles, all feathered by tropical exuberance.

Mizner No Miser

Played hooky one morning from the Congress for the New Urbanism in West Palm to relax in the courtyards of Addison Mizner in Palm Beach off of Worth Avenue. These outdoor rooms are endlessly inventive, both serene and exuberant.

Who could resist a tumble of inviting stairs like this?

Home Beat

Sitting on our front porch, looking to the side yard and our 1/2 garage beyond. Sky is now visible due to a 29" diameter Norway Maple that was growing out of our garage and dropping limbs on our neighbors house. As Norway Maple is an invasive, and prevented anything else from growing in our yard due to its shallow and poisonous roots, not too sorry to see it go.

The birch trees in the foreground may not last much longer - they are cable-stayed together. But they are a cheerful addition to the garden.
