Sometimes it’s the history that passes through the hallways, other times it’s moldings or woodwork that’s impossible (or completely uneconomical) to mirror, but most often I find it’s the little elements of quirkiness that would unlikely be duplicated in new contraction.

Such is the case found in this 1875 train station Federico de Vera transformed into his country home, utterly whimsical with it’s slanted ceilings, narrow hallways and ticket office turned living room. Plus, I’d imagine most little boys once dreamed of living in a real train station!
