Casa Feliz – Winter Park, FL

with 6 comments

Casa Feliz, a Spanish style masonry farmhouse complete with bell tower, arched doorways,  and courtyards,is a prime example of the work of designer James Gable Rogers II, Winter Park’s best known architect.  For over 60 years, his prolific work helped to define the unique residential character of Winter Park.  Rogers is also known as the architect of other Florida landmarks including the Florida State Supreme Court Building in Tallahassee.

The painstakingly refurbished home is now open as a museum on Sundays from 12-3.

  1. It would be tough, but I think I could probably handle living in such a house.

    • Yes, it would be tough — Here it is May 16th – 93 degrees – 90 % humidity — you (and me) would be outta there! Air conditioning and a swimming pool makes it all bearable.
