    The inside is scary except for that amazing stone bathroom. The outside is soooo cool though and the setting is amazing!

    First time I have ever seen a bathroom inspired by the Flintstones.

    Umm… yeah. That bathroom. A field stone vanity, wall, and shower. Florescent lighting over the vanity and a glass light shade in the shower. Tiled floor, wood trim, and textured walls. And the best part – large widows with curtains, in the shower! Colour me confused.

    This house could be a stunner. I’d be wary about the first fireplace, it looks like it’s collapsing.

  4. Now we know what people in “hidden” houses do with all of their free time. I could never imagine sleeping with that opening above my head – especially opened. But what a lovely landscape and location (for Florida). Interesting, that’s for sure. Never quite seen anything like it before!

    Love Florida cracker houses. I wish people wouldn’t mess with them. I am surprised they preserved the exterior. Still beautiful. Still searching for my one and only.

    Kind of spooky inside & out. The bathroom scares me. I bet at night, when no one is home, you can see a silhouette at that dormer window.

    Mmmm, yeah; this one is more than a little bit creepy. And that bathroom – OUCH! Looks like a stubbed toe waiting to happen. How in the world would you ever set a water glass on that counter.

    I’m still waiting for that $500K to fall in my lap so I can buy MY DREAM rustic cabin on land in fabulous LOUISIANA:

    Excuse the stupidity, but what in the heck is a “Cracker style” house?

    • Michael says: 25 comments

      Florida “cracker”. Native Floridan, not a snow bird from New Jersey or such. My family homesteaded in south Florida in the mid to late 1800s. Great Grandad and Gramps were fondly referred to as Florida Crackers. Tuff and hardworking. Many now use cracker as a derogatory term for uneducated back water farmers. Similar to “rednecks”. Cracker style house – rustic farmhouse similar to this one. Only without the stone bathroom and other “modern upgrades”.

        No!! I am 5 th generation Floridian and “cracker” is from the 1800’s when Florida was full of cattle ranches- the term “cracker” was from the sound of the whips cracking as the cowboys drove their cattle across vast lands. My family had a huge ranch in Okeechobee, Fl for generations-

          Native here, and yes, cracker comes from the sound of the whip used by Florida cowboys. So funny that people only thing of TX when they hear “cowboy” and Florida land was ideal for running cattle. Hard to come by anymore.

    This could be a great vacation place once everything added after 1980 is removed. That means the Flintstone’s bathroom, 80’s modern kitchen, leaning fireplaces, and drywall. Those brick fireplaces are not original or the drywall. Probably beadboard or simple boards throughout originally. My Great Grandad’s place had a stove or two. No brick fireplace as a skilled mason was hard to find and expensive in rural Florida.
