Best Old House Neighborhood!

That’s right folks, Thornton Park was named one of the Best Old House Neighborhoods 2010 by This Old House. It was recognized as part of the City Living group of old neighborhoods.  And if you live in or around this neighborhood you would probably agree it is one of the reasons to love Downtown Orlando.

“Its European-style commercial district of restaurants, pubs, cafes, and shops is where locals go to kick back and relax. And many of those locals reside in beautifully crafted, not-so-big houses located along Thornton Park’s brick-paved streets—streets shaded by oak trees dripping with Spanish moss.”  (This Old House online)

I’ve been selling and promoting this area and the surrounding neighborhoods for years for this very reason!  It is a beautiful place to live and the new shops and restaurants that pop up are always welcome.  The history and beauty is something difficult to find anywhere else in Orlando.  Here are a few photos from the neighborhood – enjoy!
