More changes approved for Dr. Oz's historic Palm Beach home

Posted On: 02-22-2018

The Landmarks Preservation Commission on Wednesday approved changes to previous plans to revamp Louwana, the 1919 house owned by television personality Dr. Mehmet Oz.

The modifications include changing the main entry door and other doors and windows, and removing and rebuilding the staff wing to maintain its structural integrity, architect Tom Kirchhoff said.

Other changes include the removal of the library and dining room ceilings to accommodate new sanitary piping in the bathrooms above.

Plans also call for removing and rebuilding a curving pool wall beside the new guest quarters, and removing a non-functioning mechanical chimney.

The landmarks board approved the renovation project on Dec. 20. Plans call for interior renovations to meet the needs of a modern family, Kirchhoff said. A garage will be demolished to create space for a new garage and guest home with views of the pool area.

Louwana sits on a 1.2-acre lot with 150 feet of oceanfront at 473 N. County Road. The 12-room, 12,483-square-foot house is one of a few Addison Mizner homes still standing in the North End. It was landmarked in 1980.
