    How totally lovely! Looks like it’s in north Florida which I understand is gorgeous, and the pictures certainly bear this out. Charming house!

      It is. I’m a Florida native, born in Tampa but spent 11+ years in north Florida/the ‘panhandle’. North Florida is much more like south Georgia and deep south than central and southern Florida. No big cities, no theme parks…just rolling hills, lots of pines and oaks and plenty of land to be had as evidenced here. The summers are brutal but the spring and fall are great the winters tolerable. Slower pace of life up there vs the big cities in central and south Florida (Tampa, Orlando, Miami, etc).

    House is as sweet as that pretty floral light fixture.

  3. This house is incredibly special – wow! I’m very curious about the front door opening into a small entryway and right into a wall. I wonder if this is original because the rest of the house has a great open flow and with the double front and back doors, it seems like this would have been one way to keep air moving through the house.

      I am assuming that when the kitchen was put in, they used that space as im sure that the hallway went from front door to back door to create a nice breeze on hot summer days. That was a popular style in older homes of this era.

      I had to go back and take another look after I read your comment about the wall. I see what you mean. Explanation from DJZ makes sense.

    I love the room with all the bookshelves! I hate living in the world of the I-pad. Houses don’t have bookshelves anymore and if they do, people move in, like our new neighbors, and tear them all out and tear down walls. It makes me sick, you have a wonderful 1940’s home and the inside looks like a modern apartment somewhere. Blah!
