The Bonnet House, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, an 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. 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.
