Flagler Carriage House FOR SALE

Hi Girlfriends, Gwen and I love peeking into beautiful houses. Don't you? Today is a real treat for Gwen......and down Memory Lane, for we are going to 'tour' Gwen's, once upon a time, relatives property that is For Sale in Palm Beach, Florida, the Flagler Carriage House. Gwen is related to the famous railroad magnate family, Henry Morrison Flagler, and has visited this Beaux Arts estate since childhood. Today, Gwen is used by the family to decorate their own homes, including Scottsdale.

The opulence and luxury of America's Gilded Age carried itself over into the building of Flagler's carriage house too. This carriage house was purchased and renovated for a wonderful retreat by some lucky owner. I love the preservation done to the outside with the warm tropical sun and dazzling aquablue ocean beckoning us inside.

What a wonderful spot to curl up and read a good book-!

A la prochaine,
Denise et Gwen
