Sporadic updates on the renovations of my 1924 Spanish colonial revival house in Coconut Grove, Florida. One less "mcmansion" in the Grove.

Coconut Grove neighbors band together to save 1920 Mediterranean villa on St. Gaudens Road.
The 1920's Villa on St. Gaudens Road built by Albert William Frantz of the Sunshine Fruit Company. "The two-story L-shaped house, with a picturesque wooden balcony overlooking the front yard, was designed by Richard Kiehnel of Kiehnel and Elliott. The firm introduced the so-called Mediterranean Revival style to Miami with its design of the El Jardin estate, today home to the Carrolton School, in 1917." (Miami Herald)photo by Andrew Bosch
