  • What a beautiful Home! All period furnishings w modern kitchen that blends right in. Joann was our guide, very knowledgeable on the history and the renovations that were done on the house and grounds. So looking forward to next year when they will be able to decorate for Christmas! Well worth the drive from Melbourne (1 1/2hrs)! If you are anywhere in Fl it is a must see destination. About 30 minutes w of 95, 15 minutes off 4. Thank you again for opening your amazing home❣
