Delray Beach, Florida Historic Homes

202 Swinton Ave Delray Beach, Florida
321 Swinton Ave. Delray Beach, Fl.
226 Swinton Ave. Delray Beach Florida

Love the Historic Buildings in Delray Beach, Florida with their southern charm!
Painting en plein air is so nice if you can manage to beat the heat which starts  getting pretty hot around 10am!
The one in the middle looks like
Mediterranean Revival, currently in handyman condition, but probably about 500K 2015 prices.  HA!  
Though I didn't trespass very far into the property, had to see the porte cochére (that car-port thingy) up close.  Just love Spanish Architecture!  :)
The bottom one is UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING! Way more interesting than what I could show.  People were living here or I might've been tempted to walk around the back.  I wonder if they mind artists sitting in their from yard staring into their property. At least there were no yappy dogs to rat me out.
The very top one is actually converted into a law office. Yard was all torn up, they were putting in brick pavers, but the main thing was just to record as much information on the house that I could. OMG, the carpentry detail!
I finished them up in my studio and I noticed on my 2nd & 3rd visits to paint, alot of my detail was wacky or missing... Oh Well, 
I need to move on..... there are so many really cool places in Delray Beach Florida.
Come on down and spend some cash!
