It belongs to the Thames family, who are recent transplants to Ocala. I first visited the home and met the owners, Marisa and Will, during the Historic Homes Tour in December. I was so impressed, not only by the beautiful historic house, but also by the fact that Marisa… Read more »

And with 3 young children and a huge dog, it is a house that is lived in, not just looked at. Sarah has not… Read more »
