1. The Clifford House. Clifford built the 4,500 square-foot structure to last, of Florida cypress with double layers of three-quarter-inch heart of pine for the floors. Each of six fireplaces features imported Italian tiles in different designs and mirrored oak mantels. In every way, his home was elegant, commodious, and convenient. It had indoor plumbing and large windows for maximum cross-ventilation. Walls were plaster of Paris, pristine white and never painted, and even today the house has all of its original woodwork.
