Whether it's the proximity to so many amusement parks or simply too much sun, there's something in the air in Central Florida that makes people want to theme their homes. And all due respect to these DeLand homeowners, they really went for it when they built this pagoda-style home.
The 5-bed, 4-bath home is littered with Chinese and Japanese touches (it's our right as Americans to be ahistorical) from its tiled roof on down to the massive front door made of rosewood from China. That door is carved with dragons on the exterior and inlaid mother of pearl on the interior, drawing guests into a house that somehow gets more eclectic on the inside.
Stained glass salvaged from a European chapel seems to be in just about every room and the home's color schemes and choices are a veritable time capsule of the '80s. The sellers note that the house needs work, and they believe the price they're asking for a large home of 3.5 acres reflects this. The home is on the market for $798K
