This Central Florida home on the market for $1.2M was once Polk City's railroad station

Florida is the poster state for careless historical bulldozing in the name of so-called progress, so its nice to see any examples where someone care enough to save an old, beautiful building.

The owner of this Polk City home went above and beyond to protect the historic stucco building that once served as rural Polk City's outlet to the outside world. All 180 tons of the Polk City railroad depot was moved to the site at 6914 Conley Drive.

The rest of the home is anything but old world, with a fully modern interior , a spiral staircase and a pool. The home has its own private airfield and rests along a lake. 

The home is represented by Corey Welch of Wemert Group Realty. The sellers are asking for $1.2 million.
