I grew up in Europe and came to the US in 1961 to finish my education at Columbia U in NYC. Decided to stay in NY and got my start in the fashion industry at Saks Fifth Ave. I absolutely love the life and climate in Florida and bought a home in WPB after I retired from Vogue USA being there for 18 yrs as Senior Fashion Editor. Now my husband and I enjoy traveling the world when not in Florida.
The day I saw this property in Jan 2004 it was -9 degrees in NY and +81 degrees in WPB, that made it a very easy decision. WPB is wonderful for a vacation, having abundant variety in lifestyle and activities available.
'Little Ranch' is a little piece of heaven, a jewel with great privacy. Stepping out the front door seeing the Intracoastal waters is Bliss.
Important to know: 'Little Ranch' is well away from planes flightpath, so your peace and quiet is assured.
