Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, interior designer William Eubanks had his eye on Edgewood House, a 1920s Tudor, for years. Previously, he lived in Carrier Hall, a vast and historically designated recreation of an early 17th century Jacobean country manor house. But Eubanks was spending most of his time in Palm Beach, and the 4,000-square-foot Edgewood House was the perfect place for the Anglophile to downsize. “It has such a romantic sensibility…” he said to Veranda. “It looks as if it was plucked right out of Kent.”
The charming cottage is enveloped in ivy, creeping fig, and white O’Hara climbing roses. Eubanks added more than a quarter acre of formally planted rooms and courtyards, designing the labyrinth-style gardens himself. Inside, Edgewood House is filled with European antiques and art, romantic florals, and Persian rugs. Eubanks has an extensive collection of European monarchs and aristocrat paintings, including a portrait of the Earl of Leicester. “Sometimes I open a bottle of wine and talk to them,” he told Veranda. Too funny! I wonder if they every talk back? Haha! Let’s take a tour of this enchanting home with photography by Melanie Acevedo from the March-April issue of Veranda and additional images provided to The Glam Pad by Carmel Brantley of Brantley Photography.
