Vizcaya was originally
an estate of 180 acres, designed to resemble a typical Italian
villa, self-sufficient, with a dairy, poultry house, mule stable,
greenhouse, and staff residences. The house and gardens are the
creation of three architects: F. Burrall Hoffman designed the
buildings; Diego Suarez planned the gardens; and Paul Chalfin
was the general artistic supervisor for every phase of the project.
Together they created an estate that looked as if it had been
lived in by succeeding generations of the same family with each
generation adding their own period furnishings of the time. All
of the decorative elements including furniture, lighting fixtures,
doors and fireplaces were purchased by Deering on shopping expeditions

gardens were not completed until 1921 due to the outbreak of World
Nearly 200,000 people visit Vizcaya
each year including some of the world's leading dignitaries such as
President Reagan, Pope John Paul II, Queen Elizabeth of England and
King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain. In 1994, the historic
Summit of the Americas was held at Vizcaya with President
Clinton and the 34 leaders of the Western Hemisphere.
