PALM BEACH PERFECTION ON PENDLETON
My favorite thing about living in Miami is that it is so close to Palm Beach, and one
of these days we would love to have a little weekend home there. In the meantime,
I stalk the MLS. My latest find is this British Colonial style home built in 1931 by
society architect Gustav Maas.
This charming home is located in-town on charming Pendleton Avenue
and features 5 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, and 4,462 square feet renovated and
decorated to perfection. You can read more about it here.
UPDATE: I was thrilled to learn that this home was decorated by none
other than the renowned Palm Beach decorator, Leta Austin Foster. You
can see the magazine quality shots over at The Foo Dog Blog.
