HISTORIC 1906 VICTORIAN HOME with a little over a half acre on corner lot! Imagine living in history in a quiet 800-something person community, swinging on your porch bench located on your wrap-around porch with the cool Florida breezes in winter. The exterior of this gem has original wood siding and outside shutters on the windows and the property is enclosed in a wooden picket fence. As you enter the high ceilinged foyer the outside greets you again through a door to the covered back porch. To your right from the foyer is your dining room, followed by the adorable historic kitchen with island for easy prep and in-kitchen dining and custom lighting fixture. Off the kitchen is the downstairs bathroom and another door to the laundry room that also opens up to the outside backroom porch. Flat screen television conveys. To your left from the foyer are the parlor and living rooms. These two rooms can be utilized as a media room and a great room for entertaining. Both rooms have beautiful historic wooden, brick and marble fireplaces. The parlor was designed with a paint treatment that magically mimics the historic wall paper of its time. From the foyer up the detailed staircase to the second floor, an open landing area waiting for informal congregating. To each side of the landing are bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a separate sitting room, large enough to use as an office or craft room, the third bedroom off on the other side of the landing has a large walk-in closet. The second bathroom is off the landing area of the second floor with original clawfoot tub. Most of the home flooring is original pine wood flooring, the wainscot walls are also original pine, the windows and doors are also original, and even the door hardware uses skeleton keys. Upgrades to the home include a new Energy Starred Shingled roof, irrigation system, window inserts designed for energy efficiency while keeping the historic features. The electric and plumbing has been updated. The one well is used for irrigation and the house is connected to public city water with septic tank. Conveniently located ten minutes to the the Villages, and US-301 and the Florida Turnpike. Orlando and the theme parks are easy ride for a days adventure out. This historic home in RURAL FLORIDA is a MUST SEE!
