They don't make them like they used to (except for when they do).
This circa 1999 home just outside of Orlando in Celebration passes a lot of cursory checks for Victorian homes. It has that curb appeal realtors love to go on about, as if anyone outside of flipper vultures plan to make a deal based on how it would look if you lived on the lawn. The touches on the inside of the house carry the illusion pretty well, with old-timey carpets, wallpaper patterns and curtains that were en vogue in 1800s sitting rooms.
A few architectural elements give the game away, like the relatively open concept living area on the first floor and a pool out back. The second facade of this sprawling home goes even further into the future. Looking to that street like any other Orlando suburban home, built around massive garages and little shade. Of course, the Victorian-aping side more than makes up for it with a wraparound porch that can be accessed from the master bedroom.
The home at 512 Golfpark Drive is listed by Tony Davids of Tony Davids Homes. The asking price is $2.95 million.
