Have you ever been to the lowest courtyard of Engelbrecht House? The little gate that currently opens into wilderness will – next spring – open onto a sidewalk that will curve with the rock ledge to take you to six new ground-floor rooms.
In his 1904 novel, author J.M. Barrie explains that the Lost Boys fell out of their strollers while their nannies were looking the other way. After going unclaimed for seven days, they are whisked off to Neverland to live with Peter Pan. According to the book, there are no Lost Girls because girls are too smart to fall out of their strollers. 🙂
At the bottom of the floor plan, you will see “The Axis of Don.” The curve of our rock shelf – and The House of the Lost Boys, as well – will align so the view of the valley centers on our statue of Don Quixote looking up at Chapel Dulcinea. Our 11-ft. crocodile – essential to adventure in Neverland – currently prowls the lawn in front of Spence Manor. We have confidence that he will find his way to The House of the Lost Boys when it is complete.
