The Casa Feliz Historic Home opens its doors Sunday afternoons this fall for the public to enjoy a full schedule of performances by some of Central Florida’s most talented musicians. While at the manor, guest can capture a glimpse of life in the early 20th century as they tour the beautifully restored Spanish-style farmhouse and studio of its designer, James Gamble Rogers II.
Trained docents guide guests through the living and dining rooms, library, courtyards and detached garden room that have all been expertly refurbished to their original grander of the 1930s.
Graciously set along the Winter Park Golf Course after its relocation in 2000 (the home originally sat across the street and was moved to save it from demolition), the exterior of the home reflects the same beauty visitors enjoy on the interior. A working bell tower serves as the focal point of the courtyards, gardens and vast collection of native plants.
The home is open free of charge from 12:00 to 3:00 pm on Sundays now through December 19th and is located at 656 Park Avenue North, Winter Park.
