United States of America -- Florida -- Palm Beach County -- Palm Beach
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
Casa de Miel was built in Mediterranean Revival style in 1927 by architect John L. Volk, with revisions and new landscaping by the current owners. The two-thirds acre property includes a swimming pool and two pavilions, an orchid house, furnished loggia, guest house, formal patio and putting green which replaced the original tennis court. The design of the plantings and placement of outdoor furnishings and planted containers are mostly symmetrical. Two original wall fountains on the house now are used as containers for flowers. Container plantings are featured throughout the property to soften the predominant hardscape. Tall hedges have been grown for privacy and as shields against sea salt and winds. Sculptures also are featured, including one by Fernando Botero at the entry and another by Barry Flanagan set among palm trees. The plant selection is appropriate for the tropical climate, including palms, bougainvillea, hedges of confederate jasmine, ficus and podocarpus, agave, and tropical annuals.
Persons associated with the property include: Frank Craig (former owner 1927-1933); R. T. Rich (former owner, 1933-1955); Cornelius Walsh (former owner, 1955-1997); John L. Volk (1901-1984) (original architect, 1927); Jeffrey W. Smith (architect, 1998-2001); Mario Nievera (landscape architect, 1998-2001); Fernando Silva (gardener, 2001-present); Barry Flanagan (1941-2009) (sculptor); Fernando Botero (sculptor).
