Built in 1903, the Stambaugh Cottage still has not yet found a home. It was said to have belonged to Henry Flagler's engineer who worked on plans to dredge the Lake Worth Inlet and created Peanut Island. Plans to move it there did not work out. Also mentioned was the thought to move it to Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds.
The house is currently floating, empty, on a barge in the Riviera Beach Municipal Marina. It had been lifted off its foundation to make way for new construction.
The Stambaughs have given the keys and ownership to a contractor who plans to do about $100,000 in restorations and is looking for a property in West Palm Beach to put the house on.

After seeing these photos of a cool tree-house, said to be costing over $300,000, you will not be surprised to learn that two of these luxury tree houses are being built for Hogwart’s author, J.K. Rowling and her three children, ages 18, 9 and 7, in Edinburgh.

Several trees have been removed, and a line of tall conifer trees will screen the house from the roadway.

OLD FLORESTA is know as a historic neighborhood. This past May, a 5 bedroom 4 full and 2 half bath home, 4088 living sq ft, was sold. Built in 1925 by Addison Mizner, it included, wood ceiling, fireplace, arched windows, French Doors and other features typical of that period.
The house was expanded to keep it's original character, in 1999.
Artist Ian Ross was challenged by Google to create a mural bringing the outdoors in for Google's new Mountain View, CA office wing.
His unique "organic style" brings into the office the tranquility of nature.
As people view these images, the large deer looking directly at them and the smaller ones not aware anyone is there, onlookers realize that perhaps they are in no normal place. They have now entered into a space in which artists are at play and where anything can happen.
While this is not a Historic Home, it is inspiring to bring the outdoors in!
