This home has no corners, all rounded gothic arches, coved high ceilings, original wood floors, pecky cypress ceilings and beams on the first floor, all cypress window arches, cypress wood "juliette" balcony off master, cypress wood banister and balusters going upstairs. Note the original pecky cypress arched doors at the front and rear of the home. Home features several little original built-ins, a desk in the living room and ironing board in one of the guest bedrooms. The Florida room features an original "Stolz" interior wild bird water feature, made from coquina stone and still operates. Another unique feature, typical of Sam Stolz style is the handmade, bas-relief of pelicans, doves, herons, wild turkey and quail above the exterior of the front door. Not to be left out is the large 10x20 detached block workshop with double carport. The unique features of this nearly 90 year old historic home go on,and on.

    Normally I would say that having three dimensional, painted birds on the front of your house was overkill, but with this house, it’s all good. This architect had some fun. Good for him!

    A special house. I hope whoever buys it loves it just the way it is.

    Kelly, no need to thank me now, but it’s amazing this place is still on the market a year later. Decent area, huge lot, negatives are needs some updating, small rooms and the original cypress has been painted. But I love the way this place just says Florida, and nowhere else.

    I understand a sale is pending on this unique property. What a fantastic piece of Florida history. There are a couple of blogs by owners of some other homes Sam Stoltz built. Each property is just a dream. Would love to own one of his homes.
