    Hey, wait a minute! I live in Clearwater. I could move to Monticello (up by Tallahassee). Oh, and there’s a Piggly Wiggly just down the street! Can you believe the taxes on the place are just a little over $1,000/yr!

      I think this is a “summer kitchen” for use in canning, making preserves etc. Theoretically cooler, but being from Florida originally, I don’t think it was that much cooler.

    Monticello is a nice little town. There are quite a few nice older homes there, many of them on this same street. Public schools rank low in this poor county. Near enough to Tallahassee if it’s too quiet for you. Prices are low for Florida. I don’t think a house has sold for over $160k in Monticello in this decade so this one may come down eventually. So much space in this one with potential. I assume it was maybe originally a center hall and they’ve removed the walls to make that one big room??

    This place is wildly interesting. Some rooms look untouched and almost neglected like it was abandoned, and other rooms look fine. So intriguing.

    This house is F A S C I N A T I N G !

    I would but VERY gently restore it, making sure not to erase the evocative patina of time.

      Patina is the word I almost used, but for some reason was hung up on whether it was wear or dust or whatever. I think patina when looking at old cars too!

      Yes, a good example of my favorite condition, lived in and un-self consciously home over the generations.

    Like a house from last week’s offerings, this one gives me the feel of shabby chic. It’s a very livable house.with the feeling of comfort.

    The only time I am ever tempted to move to Florida, ever, is when I see places like this on OHD!

    Concrete was thought to be the building material of the future around 1900, and this house of rusticated concrete block was probably the envy of the neighborhood when built. Impressive house!

    I am completely enamored with this place! I keep coming back to it over and over. Even though Florida isn’t on my list I have a lot of family down there and can just picture big holiday get togethers in this house. I want!!!!!!!

    This is such an interesting house. I like the feeling it creates. Needs some work for sure, but I don’t know that I’d want it polished until it looked new. I generally don’t pay much attention to the furnishing/decorations in a house because I have my own ideas, but the furniture here really works. It reminds me of an elderly couple I use to see years ago. They were impeccably dressed, though in dated, but expensive clothes. They were handsome people even in their advanced age, you could tell they had both been quite attractive in their youth. This house, and its furniture give me that same feel. I’m smitten.

    This area could be our Old House Community as well as Danville VA… on Realtor.com I found several homes that many of us would covet!
    Unfortunately I dunno how to post them here but if you go to the website and search the 20 miles around Monticello I think you’re gonna be delighted! There’s one at 417 N Court St in Quitman that is quite interesting!

    Such a beauty. I think will will dream of this house tonight.I hope somebody will gently restore this beauty.

    Looking at the build date and the exterior I wasn’t sure what to expect from the interior. However what we find is a very pleasant surprise indeed, as has been said previously I think it really only needs some gentle treatments and a bit of gardening to make it truly special.

    I saved this one to my desktop and go back and look at it ever so often. I want it so bad I ache!

    Love the exterior being slowly reclaimed by nature. My first thought was of something you might come upon in the Amazon.

    • AvatarRitaB says: 123 comments

      That’s exactly Florida for you. Nature is ready and waiting. We have plants that will grow several feet a day in the rainy months. I see it in my own yard. A constant waging of war against usurper plants.
