about T.H.O.R.

Historic corporate housing in Orlando Florida

This historic building and its adjacent sister, The Conservatory, are a pair of Florida Citrus history treastures. The House On Rails Or T.H.O.R. is a corporate temporary housing home located in the College Park Neighborhood of Orlando Florida and was built in 1950. The main house on the property, known as The Conservatory, was built in 1941 and is the currently used as temporary housing and corporate extended stay housing.

When The House On Rails was built in 1950 it was at the beginning of the popular architectual style known as Mid Century Cottage style. The building is a simple block building with metal roof yet the interior is now furnished back to the original MCM style furnishes. The architecture of building is of a tropical cottage yet the interior is furnished and styled historically appropriate to when Mr. Morse, founter of Minute Maid Corpration and inventor of frozen juice concentrates owned it.

This charming concrete block house has escaped the bulldozers of contemporary developers so prevalent in the last 20 years, making these buildings rare exceptions in the ever-growing city of Orlando, Florida. 3 More surprising is the fact that these undiscovered architectual gems are located a few minutes away from Downtown Orlando in the College Park neighborhood. The second owner of this property was Richard Morse, the inventory of frozen concentrated juice mixes and founder of Minute Maid Corporation and used as corporate housing for Minute Maid in the 1960's. The property was purchased by Mr. Morse due to its proximity to the new Minute Maid Headquarters. The location of the new Headquarters was at the intersection of the Orange Blossom Trail (Route )441 and Colonial Drive (Route 50), where the WAWA gas station currently sits and is less than 1/4 mile from The House On Rails corporate housing cottage.

The House On Rails (T.H.O.R.) was used by Mr. and Mrs. Morse to host their guests and guests of Minute Maid corporation. The main house that is located on the property and known as The Conservatory was used by Mr. and Mrs. Morse as their Orlando home until 1969 when he sold the property. As Mr. Morse was head of National Research Corporaton, the once parent company of Minute Maid, his time was divided. The Morse's maintained their main home in Massachusetts as he was head of research and development for the U.S. Army and later became a lecturer at Massachusetts Institute Of Technology. It only seems appropriate that The House On Rails and The Conservatory host corporate executives and other corporate guests during their establishment residency period or the guest residency as the house once hosted such guests for Minute Maid Corporation.

The house was sold to Mr. and Mrs. George Cheek, who held the property from 1969 to 2015 when the current owners purchased the property and saved it from developer destruction and and opened it for corporate short term housing and Orlando Florida insurance replacement housing and temporary housing in Orlando Florida. The property is well maintained wiht gardens that host butterflies, birds and other wildlife as well as appropriately furnished interiors. For larger parties corporatins may rent both The conservatory and The House On Rails to temporarily house several guests on the same property.

Havig two separate buildings on the same property is extremely valuable as corporate housing for groups where certain directors or officers of a corporation cannot stay in the same building due to their corporate charger or governing laws. This sometimes happens when CEO's and CFO's care not allowed to stay in the same building or fly on the same plane due to these internal regulations. The need to be located close to each other for business purposes yet not allowed to stay in the same corporate housing apartment or building is solved when you rent both corporate housing buildings located on this Orlando Florida property.

The House On Rails has hosted business executives, celebrities, pilots, traveling doctors and families for their short term or temporary accomodations housing needs.

The propety is fully insured as a temporary housing rental and a furnished corporate housing apartment. This is important to know as the majority of temporary housing units that you may find on sites such as Airbnb, VRBO, and others are typically not professionally insured as this type of rental. This becomes a huge deal if there is an event requiring insurance coverage a standard home owners or renters policy will deny coverage and cancel a policy that is not properly insured. Our rental properties are fully insured with Proper Insurance corporate housing and temporary housing policies underwritten by Lloyds of London.

As the House On Rails is a historic rental property is is likely that lead based paint may have been used on the interior and exterior at one time in its history. For most of us this is not a huge concern as our contacts with paint do not typically include ingesting it. Lead based paints does sometimes become an issue when toddlers and children come into contact with items painted with lead based paint and children's habit of sucking on things, particularly when teething. As lead based paint is sweet to the taste the sucking may become chewing and then the paint may crack off and the toddler or child ingest it. It does not take much paint to make a toddler or child sick so it is important that children be kept away from lead based paints. The U.S. EPA makes these brochures available for corporate rental guests and temporary housing guests so that they can be aware of the facts of lead based paints. Please view this EPA brochure regarding lead based paint, click here for the English versions, Spanish versions, Vietnamese versions, Russian versions, Arabic versions, and click here for the Somali version.
