Historic homes come in all shapes and sizes and the latest to catch our eye is this three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath in Ocala, Florida. Built in 1903, the original owner of the home was Ocala’s pioneer physician, Dr. Walter Hood.
Historians note that Dr. Hood was a general practitioner who made his rounds to Ocala patients’ homes in the town’s first motorized buggy, built for him by local blacksmith and wagon mechanic Harry Meadows. In 1910, Hood acquired “The Mogul,” a more modern vehicle with an upfront motor and headlights.
Dr. Hood’s vernacular Victorian is located in close proximity to Ocala’s downtown square and boasts loads of original touches. Upon entering you will find oak floors, wood trim, and pocket doors. Brass door plates add authenticity, while the seven different fireplaces spread over 2,650 square feet add coziness and elegance. Twelve-foot ceilings create a roomy feel, and modern amenities include an updated kitchen, new roof, and three-bay garage.
