Walton House

The charming, historic English-style cottage was built in 1917 by W.K. Walton and is not typical of other houses built during the same period in rural south Florida. It’s wood frame and stucco exterior is more reminiscent of the quintessential English cottage rather than the nearby residences. From its soaring gabled roof to surrounding country English flower garden and the adjacent European styled horse stable, you will experience the flavor and old world charm of England right here in South Florida.

 

If, however, you prefer a lush tropical setting surrounded by a multitude of rare and exotic flora, Walton House is sure to please. Situated within a 5 acre tropical botanical garden, Walton House boasts of a coral rock swimming pool with cascading waterfall, a large lagoon with beautiful white swans and Japanese koi, and a sunken pond with a flowing waterfall. Adding to the tropical ambiance is a large collection of macaws, parrots, flamingos, waterfowl, cranes, giant tortoises, and monkeys. The centerpiece to this tropical paradise is a large Indonesian style Chickee hut with an expansive deck adjacent to the tropical lagoon.

 

Walton House is conveniently located only 30 minutes south of Miami International Airport and 40 minutes from South Beach. Walton House offers a unique location that is ideally suited for the filming of movies or commercials, photo shoots, birthday parties, small weddings, and corporate retreats.
