It’s a little crazy – so OF COURSE I love it!

Located in Mount Dora, Florida, this stunning 1917 “storybook Cape Cod cottage” is currently on the market for $529,000.

Reflecting the style of Old Florida with a gabled tin roof and architectural accents, this home is bordered with a picket fence, moss-laden oaks, palm trees and clusters of bamboo.

The exterior is adorable, but the interior is downright FUNKY!

Fire engine red upholstry, canary yellow walls and a little leopard print mixed in!

This stylin’ vintage home features 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms in 2,488 square feet.

If you can take your eyes off the glaring color and gnarly animal prints, you will notice all the amazing architectural detail…

… original heart-pine floors, abundant built-ins, cabinets, French doors, and stoned-trimmed fireplace – divine!

The kitchen, although bright, is a bit of a departure from the rest of the house’s decor:

Updated to accommodate its current use as a lovely bed & breakfast inn, the kitchen features cherry-wood cabinetry, granite countertops, bamboo flooring, a Jenn-aire gas stove with electric oven and KitchenAid side-by-side refrigerator.

But the fun continues in the bedrooms…
