Lake Worth house description

Spacious, pet friendly, cozy Victorian pool home in historic Eden Place neighborhood of Florida's undiscovered seaside gem, Lake Worth - an easy 10 block walk from restaurants, night life, live music, outdoor concerts, live theater, movies, art shows, sidewalk cafes, antique stores & boutiques.

This funky/fun Lake Worth-West Palm Beach vacation rental is unlike any other. There is a secret room under the stairs with scary objects, an oriental carpet painted on the parlor floor, faux paintings on the walls & ceilings, ornate chandeliers (even in the bathroom), a secret door to the upstairs bathroom and period furnishings throughout.


Unusual is the word: An oriental carpet painted on the parlor floor is just one of the unusual features of this Lake Worth - West Palm Beach vacation rental home. The door in a closet that leads to the computer room is another unusual feature, along with faux painted ceilings and walls and elegant chandeliers throughout the house. There is a hidden, scary closet but it's your challenge to find it!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About the owner: My husband Scott and I have owned & managed a landscape company in Palm Beach County for 35 years. Our volunteer work involves helping disaster survivors after catastrophic events. In 1999 we formed a non-profit organization called The Eagles Wings Foundation which does this work around the world. Our children are grown now & launching their own careers. We are animal lovers & welcome your 4-legged family members (no giraffes please).

                              Why the Owner Chose Lake Worth:
                              I LOVE Lake Worth but my home is in nearby West Palm Beach where Scott & I maintain a plant nursery on our homesite. Lake Worth is my go-to place whenever I have free time. I feel like I'm on vacation when I meet up with friends at Lake Worth's sidewalk cafes or theaters. I love that dogs are welcome at the sidewalk restaurants.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              As a part-time realtor, I see a lot of houses, but when I walked into Eden House I knew I had found something special. A former owner was an agoraphobic artist who stayed home & painted the floors, walls & ceilings with fabulous faux paintings. He also was a great interior decorator and most of the antique furnishings came with the house, which is magical. You feel like you're stepping back into a quieter time as soon as you go through the picket fence gate and enter the secluded front courtyard.
