    Beautiful home here which displays the changes in architectural trends after 1910. The house is still identifiable as being in the Queen Anne style with its ground hugging large circular tower on the side, but in massing (form) the house shares more similarities with the very popular Foursquare type houses of the time than with earlier examples of Queen Anne style homes. The interior layout is still showing the asymmetry characteristic of the Queen Anne style but the millwork and stained glass windows are simple and clean in design unlike late 1800’s examples which were often ornate and rich in ornament. Outside of these late Victorian touches, few later updates are visible but overall the house seems quite original and intact. There’s one interior tapered square column seen near the staircase which would have been commonly found in Bungalows or Craftsman style homes of the same time but the very popular Arts & Crafts interior of the time are absent here. Put another way, this was an old fashioned home for its time; perhaps it was built for someone older. Identifiable Queen Anne style homes built after 1910 are rare, and those built after 1912, (when the Titanic’s tragic sinking symbolized for many the end of the Gilded Age) are even rarer.

    So many stunning features inside and out! Wow! How in the world, though, does a house this size only have three bedrooms?!

    Yeah, I saw this one too. It’s nice. It’s big too: and fancy.

    For essentially the same money, you can have this OMG beautiful, PERFECT house on a gorgeous piece of land, on the best street in the best neighborhood: [I looked into it – I’m kind of obsessed]. It has a fabulously updated 50’s kitchen and three very fine, vintage, ceramic tiled baths. I don’t know about you, but living in Florida is all about the sun, and I have not seen a more open, bright and airy house of this vintage – maybe ever. The porches – and I mean PORCHES – are phenomenal. If you happen to have light and airy contemporary tastes in interiors you won’t have to touch a thing. The floors are flawlessly shimmering and spectacular. The grounds – sigh – I mean hundreds years old live oaks -and on and on and on. Thank you SO MUCH CocoaG for sharing it last week. I can’t get it out of my head. Since I can’t have it, it would make me SO happy to know that it went to someone who would appreciate the ABUNDENCE of positive energy the place radiates like the a supernova. 🙂

    We have passed this house many times. Our son lives in Ocala and I’ve always wondered what it looks on the inside. Now I know and it does not disappoint! Just beautiful!

    The only things ‘d do to this wonderful house, is to install central air (I hate the sight of air conditioners hanging out he windows of old houses), and get rid of that paneling in the one bathroom. This is not far from where my brother lives….do I get extra points for that, in claimin g this house as mine?

    What a beautiful home. It always amazes me how sometimes such great houses are so inexpensive. Where I live in NY, this house would be at least 2 million dollars. Really challenges my commitment to living on Long Island!

    My dad was from Ocala (silver springs area). It is a really nice town and some terrific homes. I miss those live oaks so much as well as the spanish moss. W Kentucky is nice, but not home.

    I love the house and all the incredible interior details. The built-in gutters on the roof are especially nice!

    Oh, that bathtub! As someone else mentioned, the sight of that cheesy window AC unit next to that wonderfully yummy fireplace struck a chord in me that makes me want to buy it just to give it the mechanical updates it is screaming for to carry her into the next century! I don’t normally click on these FL homes because it isn’t a place I have ever desired to live, but this one is magnificent! Just wow!
