The Stewart family built the estate in 1930 on 30 acres overlooking the Indian River. The estate was designed after the Southern California Mission of San Juande Capestrano. The place was nicknamed the White House of the South because of all the dignitaries that were entertained there.
Mrs. Stewart was very pleased with my father’s creative and outstanding work. He built the entrance and exit gates into the estate and spent many years remodeling the home.
