Description

The Pinewood Estate at Bok Tower Gardens, located at 1151 Tower Boulevard in Lake Wales, Florida. The Pinewood Estate is a mansion that was constructed for Charles Austin Buck, the vice president of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation. In 1929, William Lyman Phillips, an architect at Frederick Law Olmstead, Jr.'s (1822-1903) firm, began designing the gardens. In 1930, Charles Wait began designing the house in the Mediterranean style of architecture. Originally called "El Retiro," which means "The Retreat" in Spanish, the estate was acquired by Nellie Lee Holt Bok , the daughter of Bok Tower Gardens founder Edward W. Bok (1863-1930), and renamed the "Pinewood Estate" in 1970.These images were taken by Russell Moore in 2010.
