- For Sale
Southeast 1st Street, Delray Beach, Florida. Delray Beach's only authentic residence designed by celebrated Palm Beach architect Addison Mizner, this one-of-a-kind gem resides in the city's Marina Historic District, just one block west of the Intracoastal Waterway and one block south of Atlantic Avenue's boutiques and bistros in vibrant downtown Delray Beach. The sugar-sand ocean beachfront is just across the bridge.
A wonderfully charming home and an architectural treasure, this 1926 vintage bungalow was originally built in Boca Raton's Spanish Village neighborhood, then was floated by barge to Delray Beach in the 1930's, an era that saw the city evolve as an art colony. Tastefully updated and lovingly cared for by its preservationist owner, the residence sits on beautifully landscaped grounds in an area of historic homes. In the traditional Spanish Mediterranean manner, several rooms open to outdoor spaces, nestled among the specimen plantings, featuring a screened front porch capturing the prevailing southeasterly breeze.
Entered through an Old World pecky cypress door from the porch, this delightfully inviting bungalow is appointed with gleaming Dade County heart pine floors, French doors, and plantation shutters. Three bedrooms, two and a-half baths, and an attached garage are included in the total of 1,854Â± square feet. Styled in elegant simplicity, the living room rises to a white-washed, pecky cypress-beamed cathedral ceiling above the stucco walls, and is warmed by a wood-burning fireplace. French doors open the gracious dining room to a garden loggia. The fully equipped kitchen has granite counters, Spanish tile floors, and a breakfast nook. Opening to the loggia, the master suite is set off by a white-washed, beamed ceiling and has a private bath. Two more bedrooms are served by a hallway bath.
