Above is our coveted Dream Home. it is a Santa Lucia Plantation cottage, built in 1886 from vertical palm logs. It is in Ormond Beach Florida. It is a short 3 block street, covered by old trees and no through traffic. just us Coveters
Our dream since 1985 was to retire at Ormond Beach... maybe someday
We found our dream home in 1987 just 100 years after they built it, my photo of it hangs on our kitchen wall. Just steps from the beach and steps to the Saint Johns River.. now it is 127 years old.
For all these years, each time we go to our favorite beach, we drive by and sit and stare and declare we will offer them millions if we ever win the lottery. NOTE: i am not posting the address just in case one of my readers has millions...
These two homes are on the same street and neighbors to our dream home. Above is Talahloka hunting lodge, also built from palm logs and built in 1886.
Below is Trappers Lodge, built of logs in 1876
