The most charming historic homes can be found in Sarasota, Venice and Punta Gorda FL
Old Florida Charm with a lot of History
Step back in time
Historic in age and timeless in architectural inspiration – the Sarasota, Venice, and Punta Gorda area is home to a variety of beautifully restored historic homes. Some “Old Florida Style” homes are from late 1800; most are from the early to mid-1900. If your dream is to own a historic home, don’t miss out on all the opportunities available in this beautiful area on the West Coast of Florida.
Use your inspiration
If you don't want to buy a remodeled home, you can buy a "fixer-upper" and use your inspiration. Some of those homes still have the original hardwood flooring, which the owners once installed with pride. They can be renewed and look great after that process. Some homes even have their original stone fireplaces, and the traditional molding is still in place. However, don't be overly excited. You better know what you are doing because a lot of sweat and knowledge is involved if you want to bring a 100-year building up to code.
