a. Situated on a limestone bluff overlooking Biscayne Bay, Villa Woodbine is one of the finest early twentieth century estates remaining in Coconut Grove. This outstanding
Mediterranean Revival style house is noted for its fine detail and craftsmanship, particularly the ornamentation in its arched openings and its wrought iron grille work. Charles S. Boyd, founder of the Appleton Paper Company in Wisconsin, commissioned the house as a winter home and named the house after a grade of paper called woodbine enamel.
