When it comes to Florida real estate, they truly don't make them like they used to. Cracker homes and brick estates gave way to stucco and sticks as developers sought ever higher profit margins, without concern for the people who would one day have to live in them.
We can see that there is a better way when historic homes hit the market. Take, for example, this historic Tudor in Jacksonville's San Marco neighborhood. No detail is spared in the construction, with everything from floor to ceiling dripping with luxury and projecting a feeling of continuity. This is house that will be here for quite a while, and every corner of the home feels that way, even after more than 80 years.
The solidity of the home even extends outside to its goose coop, a pseudo-Victorian splash of color that would fetch half a mil on its own if you plopped it near downtown Orlando. While the geese will move with the owner, it seems that the goose house stays on the $2.4 million property at 927 Arbor Lane. The property is represented by Anita Vining of Berkshire Hathaway.
