Should A Historic Mansion Meet The Wrecking Ball?
The home does not have federal designation as a historic site. Many Mizner-designed buildings in south Florida, where Mizner designed many homes and buildings, have this designation. The home is the only surviving Mizner-designed home north of the Mason-Dixon line. The township and historic preservation groups want to set up a foundation to buy back La Ronda but that could cost as much as $7 million. Check out the a gallery of Addison Mizner designs and vote in the Save It or Raze It poll on Bright and Spacious.
UPDATE: La Ronda has been given a 90-day reprieve.
