Ocala Historic District Helvenston House is a masonry structure consisting of a ground floor, second floor, and unfinished basement. Reflective of Mediterranean Revival style design it has a stucco finish, red ceramic tile, and low-pitched roof. This style is also known for its square, boxy design, spacious rooms, and high ceilings. It features 5 bedrooms, 4 ½ baths, kitchen, large LR and DR. Recent alterations to the home eliminated two key original, historic features: a porte-cochère (a covered entrance large enough for vehicles to pass through) on the west side of the structure, and a large screened sleeping porch on the east side of the structure (sleeping porches are a common feature of historic homes in warm climates). Both the porte-cochère and the sleeping porch were enclosed, and now function as an interior bedroom and interior office, respectively.
