Beautiful stonework and architecture.

I wonder whether it comes equipped with outdoor doggie restrooms as well?

Jarart said...

Very nice. I like the curvy lines of this place.

sixmats said...

I think I could live there.

That's quite an impressive house. The rooms in the turret (?) must be wonderful.

That looks huge. Love the porch.

Steffe said...

I recognise only the American flag, what are the others, do you know?

B Squared said...

Looks more like the Midwest or New England than Ocala. Lovely, nevertheless.

So nice:) I like especially the tower:)

Jacob said...

@ Steffe - I have no club. May be some local clubs or organizations.

Karen said...

I'd love to get inside and do a tour. Looks like a mini-mansion with interesting rooms. Almost makes me want to get back into Real Estate. The best part was touring other people's houses.

Hilda said...

It does look huge. Love the stone walls and pillars!

Lois said...

It's very nice! I like the stone in the walls.

Jacob said...

@ Per Stromsjo: Yes, but unfortunately, they are not Swedish outdoor doggie restrooms...these are restricted only to Ocala dogs, otherwise known as "hot" dogs!

Per Stromsjo said...

Oh, the world is full of discrimination!

A beautiful house for sure and a lovely capture of it! :-D

Your EG Tour Guide said...

How interesting that the window frames are painted red. Hmmm

Jacob said...

@ EG - Yes...I think it gives the house a certain flair...but, I have no idea why red...I'm not privy to the flights of those who live in such rarefied air...

David said...

Such a beautiful house, I wanna live there!

What a beautiful structure . . . so incongruous to Florida, in my mind. It appears to be built in the late 1800s in the Queen Anne style. It's wonderful to see it maintained. Are there many other historical homes in Oscala?

Jacob said...

@ Slim - yes, there are quite a few historical homes here...I've shown a few on the blog so far, and will show more in the future.
