This spectacular dream home built by businessman James Deering, (1859-1925) of International Harvester, is a mansion in a secluded tropical area, with patio steps in back leading directly onto beautiful Biscayne Bay. The house is filled with treasures from his many European trips and is designed to reflect a variety of periods and styles. The expansive gardens are a mix of Italian and French with plants that thrive in the subtropical climate, statues, and fountains. In 1994 it was designated a National Historic Landmark and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. Extraordinarily colorful beauty in a serene setting! This should be a must-see for anyone who loves history and who travels to the Miami area. Open daily 9:30-4:30 except Tuesdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
