Notes:
"About 1917, Mrs. E. T. Stotesbury of Philadelphia tired of the old fashioned shingle cottages and yellow frame hotels, called upon Addison Mizner to build for her a suitable home. Addison Mizner had impeccable taste and a genius for creating beauty, and he built the first of the great villas which now line the shores of Palm Beach island. The first slide shows the patio of this house which is more Italian than Spanish feeling. The house was designed primarily for entertaining, and in the large loggia, which shows on the left of the picture, a hundred or more guests can be seated for lunch or dinner. Inside the house, there is a large dining room and reception rooms. Beyond the house a lawn runs to the ocean."
