A. Exum Home -622 Faulkner Street

Gorgeously restored & furnished with elegant period pieces, this 1920 home appears grand while retaining a comfortable ambiance. Original doors & windows remain, some now stained glass augmented. Where heart pine floors needed replacement they’ve been exactingly matched. Expansive double-decker porches boast cedar plank floors. Newly configured & period styled master suite included enhanced closet space and an inviting lady slipper claw-foot tub!

B. Strahman – Fennema Home – 647 Faulkner Street

Built in the 1920s as the north wing of El Real Retiro, this absolutely unique home offers a glimpse of art deco glamour gone Florida rustic. Much of original decor remains. Period murals depict scenes from New Smyrna history while other walls are hand embellished with Florida flora & fauna. Both approaches join the brick flooring to compliment paneling built-in shelving and doors, all of old growth pecky cypress. On the National Register of Historic Places since 1987.

C. Hodges Home – 620 S. Riverside Dr (at Smith St)

Built around 1914 as the Ferry Tender’s home & gloriously revived in 2018, 620 originally offered four ground floor rooms & a dormered attic. Later bed and bath additions extended toward a separated kitchen at property’s rear. With original windows cleverly retained & colorfully augmented, abundant recent transformations include: exterior tabby walls, unifying metal roof, and on-site cypress tree milled into aromatic walls for the former kitchen-turned-guest suite.

D. Gillen-Dowman Home – 1000 S. Riverside Drive (at 2nd St)

Locals have watched this elegant 1938 home change color & yard treatment several times over the past decade. Here’s your chance to see beyond its now classically nautical exterior & enjoy a subtly colored interior gracefully replete with antique & period furnishings, gilt-framed mirrors & art objects galore! An upper-story deck off master suite, & unique full circle room-flow around second floor just initiate the architectural textures found here.

E. Lloyd Home – 1109 Live Oak Street (between 3rd & 4th St) 

NSB’s Sunny South Hospital & Sanitarium (circa 1938) converted to a single family home years ago, but recent renovations impressively re-imagine it.  Front porches return to open air.  Altered interior walls create bright, flowing public space along with 4 varied bedroom suites.  Original sash windows, built-in bookcase and heart pine flooring remain.  Some original doors move from hinges to barn-sliders & the remains of a heart pine joist become mantle & bar shelving. 

1109 Like Oak Street
F. Smyrna Yacht Club – 1201 S. Riverside Drive (at 5th St)

Organized by 36 charter families, the initial SYC building (by H M Griffin) opened in 1930. Its first international sailing regatta began 2 years later & the tradition continues as one of only 12 Lipton Cup competitions, attracting sailors and enthusiasts from around the world. The compound grew to include indoor and outdoor dining, a swimming pool & tennis courts. SYC remains a private club, so here’s a rare opportunity to view its lovely interior and learn its history.
