Ingram House

This home was designed in 1932 by local architect James Gamble Rogers, and was built in 1935 for Dr. L.C. Ingram. The style, known as Norman Revival, is rare in Florida. To provide a romantic, time-worn appearance, they used weathered painted brick, half-timbering, and an intentionally sagging ridge. It features a mock cloister entrance porch with a trefoil arch doorway and lancet window arcade, and decorative brickwork. (Info courtesy of Orlando Lake Ivanhoe Historical Trail

  1. I have been in love with this house for as long as I can remember. It's on the way to my optometrist's (just past Lake Highland Prep).
