Plan Description


The "Colonial Revival" was an amalgam of many national styles and building traditions, traditions that later composed themselves into unique sub-styles as each style was refined and improved. The Coral Gables house (designed by Althea Merrick, mother of real-estate developer George Merrick) is prototypical of the Colonial Revival. The Merricks, New Englanders transplanted to Miami, Florida, dressed a naive Georgian Palladian, New England Farmhouse in local Coral Stone, covered the gabled roof with red-clay tiles, and called it "Mediterranean" although it was, in fact, a sentimental idealization of the American recolonization of Florida. George Merrick would eventually develop the family's 3,000 acre citrus grove into the town of Coral Gables whose tree-lined boulevards, gorgeous monumental buildings, and lush parks were organized around quaint colonial villages: French, Italian, Dutch South African, Chinese, Spanish-Mexican, et cetera. Coral Gables is among the most successful metamorphosis of the assorted Colonial Revivals into the Beaux Arts City Beautiful.
