Scenic Tour – What you’ll see!
ALBA HOTEL / THE BILTMORE
The Biltmore Condominium began life as the Alba Hotel and was built by G. Maurice Heckscher for the price of 7 Million dollars. Reported to have been named after the Duke of Alba, the 550 room, 12 story hotel opened in February of 1926.
BRADLEY’S BEACH CLUB
Incorporated in 1898 as an exclusive club, Bradley’s Beach Club offered private dining and gambling to its membership which was strictly limited to non-Florida residents. The club adhered to a strict evening dress code of white ties and tails or tuxedos until its closure in 1945.
Now merely a road name, the mansion named Casa Bendita once existed as one of Addison Mizner’s finest works. Stretching from ocean to lake, the estate was built for John S. Phipps in 1921 at the cost of $150,000. The oceanfront portion of the property was sold in 1960 and subdivided, while the family retained the 20 acres to the west of County Road.
The second of Bethesda-by-the-Sea’s eventual three locations was built for the cost of $13,000 in
1894, after the congregation had outgrown their original home which had convened in the area’s first schoolhouse.
Benefiting the Historical Society of Palm Beach and the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County
