Bonnet House was designed and built in 1921 by Frederic Clay Bartlett and is one of the few complete homes and studios of a recognized American artist that is open to the public. The creativity of the Bartlett family makes the home truly unique. Murals on the ceilings, faux marble on the walls and floors, and balustrades that are actually paintings are found throughout the main house. Fish sculptures rise in the air, and shells have their own museum. The Bartletts' eclectic collections are also on display, everything from antique china to carousel animals from the turn of the 20th century. Nestled among miles of beachfront development on 35 sub-tropical acres of a pristine barrier island system, the property is home to squirrel monkeys, swans, and other animals including an occasional manatee. The Bartletts created and preserved a special retreat that you can explore today.
