West Palm Beach's Flagler Drive, a grand, palm-tree-lined boulevard that runs for miles along the edge of Lake Worth is one of those really truly great civic spaces that are treasured because they would be impossible to build today because of prohibitive land costs. Luckily West Palm's early city planners had the wisdom to create it, with classy houses quickly sprouting up along its length like this historic Montery Style number built in 1937.
The three bedroom house is on the market for $2.5 million. The renovated 3,500 square foot house comes with a pool, a bright red roof, really beautiful interiors, and a front yard that looks across an absolutely wonderful street to the home's private dock and sweeping views of Lake Worth and the very posh estates of Palm Beach on the other side. Good urban planning saves the day.
