    While the coach/gate house is very beautiful, I don’t like how there is a complete and utter lack of landscaping by the main house. Gravel (yuck!) up to the walls. I would have at least left a little room to plant those manicured spiral hedges. I also don’t like how there is no border separating the lot from the golf course. At least plant hedges around the property line or something. The inside of the home is admittedly beautiful. Very restrained and elegant at the same time. The gorgeous photos probably help a lot. Even though I’d never live in Wellington, I’m sure they’ll find some equestrian to swoop this up.

      Come on Daniel…when the Visigoths come over the last sand trap, you don’t want any shrubbery getting in the way of the catapults.

      Not having some kind of landscaping roughly around the property line is a little odd but doesn’t bother me much, but I do wholeheartedly agree with you about needing something between gravel and home. I would’ve thought they could remain true to the French look while also putting SOMETHING alive there.

    Does anyone have any reference to the supposed AIA award for this design? I am skeptical, as I am not aware of them giving any recognition to period designs for well over 50 years.

    Looking at the thumbnails, I was prepared to hate it. Looking closer at the pics, I like it. Despite the possibilities of it going Disney, it didn’t and it’s tasteful and comfortable looking. The exterior does look remarkably like what one would expect to find in France. My only real complaint is the location; I’ve said it before, but if I’m going to live in Florida, it’s going to on the water.

    Beautiful home. I’m normally not a fan of the drive-through coach house thing, on the basis that it blocks the view of the main house, but this is really nice, it creates a neat little courtyard. The style of the house is beautiful, I agree with Grrrowler that it teetered on the verge of Disney-ness but ultimately fell on the right side of the line. Interior is beautiful as well, it looks very authentic, with the right balance of formal and casual. I only wish there were more interior pics.

    this is a truly beautiful and unique home. I love it. I’d sat it’s one of my favorite homes featured on this site. the siting and location of the gate house lend an air of maximum privacy from the street. I think the gravel up to the house is an accurate reference to the way homes and even palaces in France are treated. being a fan of pea gravel drives I’d have to say I love it! the other three mediterranean homes on the same street also seem to be stand outs. it’s the two white shingled homes in the typical Florida style that seem out-of-place.
