Outside of the politics of some of Tallahassee's finest, there's nothing medieval about Florida. Most parts of the world have outhouses older than even the oldest structures still standing in the Sunshine State.
Even without rock-ribbed structures that have stood the test of time, we still have our strengths. The home of the House of Mouse is darn good at playing pretend. And that's exactly what we have in this delightful Tudor sitting incongruously in the heart of Orlando's College Park neighborhood.
The outside of the house at 818 Stetson St. apes the preeminent style of the English and Welsh countryside in the hundred or so years before Ponce De Leon set sail from Spain for Florida. And to it's credit, the home is old for Florida, being built in 1927. The inside of the house is a bit more modern, with hardwood floors and tile throughout and a greyscale color palette. The only indication of the home's exterior flourishes comes in the odd shape of some of the upstairs rooms, owing to the steep roof. The backyard would fit onto any well-to-do Floridan neighborhood with the standard pergola, pavers, fire pit and bar.
The 3-bedroom, 2-bath home is on the market for just a hair shy of $600K.
The listing is being handled by Alex Vastardis of Coldwell Banker Realty.
