Thankful for the opportunity to view the brilliant Vizcaya grounds on a recent Miami trip. Constructed from 1914 until 1923 this spectacular estate formerly owned by James Deering, owner of Deering McCormick, is now a registered U.S. landmark. Preservation of the grounds continues to be priority as seen from the high level of maintenance. Below, the villa’s mangrove swamp is protected with giant stones to prevent high water surge damage. Clear to see that preservation is priority.
