The History of Ocean Apple Estate

Capturing picturesque oceanfront vistas, tucked away in tropical seclusion, this vintage jewel is a much-admired local landmark designed and built in 1930 by renowned Palm Beach society architect John Volk.

Volk was born in Graz, Austria, and received architectural degrees from Columbia University and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.

Volk's residential clients included the families of Vanderbilt, DuPont, Ford, Dodge, and Pulitzer.

Volk was known for his versatility and great sense of proportion.His love of a light, airy, gracious style is apparent in so many of his creations, particularlyin Ocean Apple Estate.

Volk designs have the distinct quality of propriety. One notices the lives lived in his homes, no matter how grand, rather than just the home itself. This was his true genius.

This gift was never more profound asreflected in the Ocean Apple Estate compound Volk was commissioned tocreate for FontaineFox.

Fox was a famous cartoonistbest knownfor writing and illustrating the Toonerville Folks comic strip that appeared from 1913 to 1955 in over 300 newspapers across North America.

The strip was about a small-town, which seemed to operate in its own little universe, and the gentle humor dealt with the antics ofvarioussemi-realistic situations. It was one of the most popular comics in the World War I era.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fontaine_Fox

Walking through the home, guest cottageand around the expansive grounds one feels what Fontaine Fox must have experienced when drawing upon the deep creativity inherent to such a serene setting.

Fox later sold the estate to The Mott family, known forMott's Apple Sauce and other apple based products. Hence the name, Ocean Apple Estate. The Mott family owned the estate for a generation.

Ocean Apple is owned by Frank and Nilsa McKinneywho recently masterfully added onto and restored Ocean Apple to its original grandeur.
