The cottages of Lake Worth

Many of my posts have been dealing with the homes here in Lake Worth that sit on 25 ft. lots.    Amazing what you can do on such a small foot print and still have grass that needs cutting.  In modern usage, a cottage is usually a modest, often cosy dwelling.  Here in Lake Worth it takes on a romantic connotation of a vacation home by the beach.   Lake Worth is reaching it’s centennial year and is referenced often along with Key West.  Both are on the ocean, the life style laid back and bike riders everywhere, and both are vacation destination with a small town feel.  Lake Worth is easier to reach as the Palm Beach International Airport is only 7 minutes away or just take 6th St. exit off I-95 and if Palm Beach and Worth Ave. is your cup of tea, again 7 min up the road.   Lake Worth has this great beach with a fishing Pier and the new Casino building about to open.Much of the charm comes from the wonderful sun drenched tropical colors of the homes and the small details.   The above bell pull came along from the owners former home in Key West.  The average sq. ft. in a cottage is around 800 feet.  Some manage two bedrooms, still offering comfortable sleeping arrangement, borrowing a boat style bunk with lots of storage underneath.  The one bedroom is extremely spacious as you can see.  It even has Dade County pine floors.  You may ask, so why is that special.  Dade County pine is impervious to termites.  Fans in this area are deregeur and add to the charm.
