It may not be as famous as Claude Monet's house and gardens in Giverny or Jackson Pollock's studio in East Hampton, but the Bonnet House, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is an equally impressive, and perhaps more exuberant, example of an artist's vision of life in three dimensions. Built in 1920 by painter Frederic Clay Bartlett and his first wife, Helen, the oceanfront estate sits on 35 acres, originally purchased for a dollar an acre. The house's name stems from the presence of a particular type of water lily that grows there: According to legend, when alligators surfaced from the waterways, the lilies would catch on their heads, so they appeared to be wearing flowered bonnets as they patrolled the grounds in search of food.Today, Bonnet House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and continues to serve as a gathering spot for artists, with frequent concerts and exhibitions. The embodiment of an idiosyncratic vision encompassing color, art, and nature, the estate remains as enchanting as when it was conceived. Bonnet House (954-563-5393) is located at 900 North Birch Road, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
