    I really like the exterior of this. The cloistered back garden is lovely, and private. This would be so much nicer on a much larger property.

    As for the interior, I wonder if there’s a discount for not buying the dowdy furnishings. A lot of the public rooms have some lovely detailing. Some of the spaces have a definite lack of detailing, but overall it could be made into a very beautiful house.

    A very unique home. I think it’s pretty cool. I don’t mind the relatively small lot, because I think they blended in the landscaping perfectly to make it seem “right”. Now about that location…

      What is wrong with the location? Wellington is a very affluent horse-loving community.

        This is actually just across Jeremy Jacobs’ estate.

        Lies. Wellington is cookie-cutter and foreclosure heaven. Palm Beach Polo and maybe a couple other communities with the equestrian facilities don’t make the entire town of Wellington affluent. WEF brings in the money for the short time and then it’s just suburbian hell.

          But all the places on earth have less affluent and more affluent parts. This is just a few feet from Palm Beach, is filled with humongous mansions, for both the horses and the people, riddled with famous residents. It’s not waterfront megamajesty and not everything is wonderous, but there are nice houses spreckled around.

    What’s the point of having a house on a golf course if you wall the house off completely from any view you might have of it? Isn’t that the whole point of building there? I love the moldy treatments on the exterior. Very french.

    One of the best and most tasteful florida houses I’ve seen on here. Actually looks like a home, with craftmanship/details to match and not just another anonymous oversized cheap build mansion.

    I agree the interior is quite dated in parts but not atrocious. Just colour choices and light fittings I think.

    Love the proportions of all the spaces. I agree weird to be so walled in, but the second floor would have nice views. And it does match the architecture. So maybe it’s just a privacy/aesthetic thing?!

    I absolutely love the exterior, the interior is captivating and illuminating for the eye to see, but in some areas I would have a different color scheme. The grounds and landscape are magnificent, joyful, and cozy.

    Very nice home, looks great. I would have made a more grand kitchen though.
    With regards to Londoner’s comment saying that this is a horse community, I feel this house would have been better served located on a large parcel of land with horses and stables than here. It would really be magnificent in a setting like that, especially with the rear of the house set up the way it is.

      yes, I think that’s absolutely right. It’s actually unusual. Most houses I’ve seen in Wellington and the Acreage have a whole lot of land, even the small houses. I suppose the small lot is due to it being in a country club and not by itself. But the design would have been a lot more impressive on an estate size lot. This looks like it was crammed in there and lessons the wow factor of the architecture
