Prim and pastel, this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom side gallery home looks like the kind of place a Victorian lady would have frequented to fill her chapeau needs—and it is! The street-facing parlor once served as a hat shop, and now it’s a sitting room that attaches to the master bedroom. There, you’ll also find pocket doors, a fireplace, and hardwood floors.

The home has a bonanza of porches—there’s the parlor’s front porch, the master bedroom’s side porch, plus the living room’s Juliet balcony. The dining room and connected kitchen open to a sitting room, which features a wall of windows overlooking the leafy backyard.

Outside, you’ll find a heated pool framed by bricks and shaded by palm trees. A small studio/garage extends the living space, as does a camelback-style second floor with a bedroom and half-bath.

This beautifully preserved Victorian sits a block off Esplanade Avenue, by DeSoto Park, and it’s asking $815,000.
