Imagine the charming, historic style that English cottages are known for, surrounded by the vibrant tropical splendor of Florida. At Walton House in Homestead, Fl, you don’t have to imagine. Outside, the greenery overpowers everything, all five acres of botanical garden of it. Take a stroll and indulge in the sensory feast, get lost in it, there isn’t a place you can find that isn’t Instagram worthy. Start at the coral rock swimming pool with cascading waterfall, letting the realization that you really are in paradise slowly wash over you. Next, to the large lagoon with white swans and Japanese koi, and sunken pond with a waterfall. At the heart of this tropical wonderland is the Indonesian-style Chikee hut with an expansive deck right next to the lagoon. It’s hard to miss, which is just as well because it is a must-see. And when you’ve had your fill of the tropical paradise, say goodbye to all the exotic friends you just made. The property boasts an impressive collection of flamingos, parrots, macaws, giant tortoises, and monkeys, just to name a few.
Need a break?
Need to go somewhere and sit down and take it all in, drink in hand? Well, all you have to do is turn your sites to the true star, Walton House itself. The gorgeous historic structure can only be described as the quintessential English cottage, with its wood frame and stucco exterior. It stands proud and different from all the neighboring residences, a classic beauty in a sea of modern style, with all the charm to match. According to waltonhousemiami.com, the beauty was built in 1917 by W.K Walton. It is as breathtaking now, as we can only imagine it was then.

The house serves a number of different functions, as a private venue for parties and photoshoots, but it’s no surprise that it marries itself so well to weddings. It can house up to 150 guests, the 100 candle lit lanterns and 4000 bistro lights acting as witnesses as you all dance the night away. The only complaint you’ll have is that you can’t spend the night at the wonderful venue, but you won’t complain for long. Getting to and from the historic Walton House is a breeze, the property is conveniently located just thirty minutes south of Miami International Airport and forty minutes from South Beach.
