About This Old House

Gorgeous, meticulously restored and maintained landmark home on the National Register with separate casita located in the Valencia Road National Historic District on the banks of the Indian River Lagoon. Enjoy the ambiance of this homes amazing original details with the dependability and every modern amenity you would expect in a new home. Built in 1924 by the architect Richard Rummell, Jr., as his personal home and lived in by the family until the 1970s. Mr. Rummell graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1910 and became one of the first degreed architects to practice in the state of Florida. This three bedroom, two and half bath 2,356 sq. ft. Spanish Colonial Revival Home was built to impress and restored top to bottom by a historic preservation specialist. All of the details you would expect in the personal home of an architect that include beamed pecky cypress ceilings, leaded glass and custom wooden doors, lighted niches and beautiful iron work. Even the screen doors are original! Of particular note are the elaborate tile floors, including tiles taken from an old church in Cuba that was being torn down in the 1920s. Even mid-century fans will be impressed by the abstract cast concrete artwork added later to the interior and exterior of the home by the Rummells friend the Danish artist Hans Brockdorff.
The completely walled and gated property provide uncommon privacy, and consist of the main house and a large separate studio perfect for guest or as a rental unit. Rummell built the studio in 1936 to serve as his home office and it contains a complete kitchen and full bath with its own porch and patiio. All of this is surrounded by lush award winning gardens with original brick paved courtyards and an antique stone fountain. Walk to coffee shops, the grocery store, gym, hospital, neighborhood dock etc. Watch the rocket launches from the front yard and just minutes to the beach as well as easy commuting distance to Orlando.
