Historic Delray Home Moved


DELRAY BEACH, FL – Marc Julien Homes took part in the relocation and rehabilitation of a historical, mission-style home located on 5th Court in the Del Ida Park historic district in Delray Beach last month. The reason for the relocation is to make way for a new 4,446-sq.-ft. mission style home to the east. The Delray Beach builder relocated the existing main house, built in 1926, 15 feet to the west, while raising the existing guest house, built in 1931, three feet at its existing location. On top of raising and relocating the existing historical structures, the company is joining the two with an 882-sq.-ft. addition. Marc Julien Homes teamed up with Affiniti Architects to assist them in the design and rehabilitation of the historical structure. According to the company website, “It is a first for us to relocate and rehabilitate this beautiful historic, 1926 mission-style home, located in the heart of Delray Beach’s historic district. The project will see the home relocated by 15 feet, the structure will be renovated and a new portion added to connect the main house to the guesthouse. Our goal is to retain all the historic elements of the home while adding all the comforts of today’s houses.”
