August 20, 2021

This could be a fun project! There are even grapefruit trees on the property. The Magnolia House was built in 1908. It is located on .64 acres in Defuniak Springs, Florida. Work was started on the house. It features a large covered front porch, wood walls, wood ceilings, a painted mural and I bet there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting. The home got it’s name due to a large magnolia tree in the yard. Two bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,184 square feet. $85,000

From the Zillow listing:


Meet…the Magnolia House. She is what some may pass by without a second look. Or call old and worn out. Yet others see the beauty within her, which only needs a little time & love to restore her full charm. Named after the even-then giant magnolia tree back in the 1950’s, the Magnolia House is the epitome of southern charm. With original floors, doors, tongue & groove walls and soaring ceilings, you are transported to a simpler time. As told to me, the stage coach even stopped here! The front porch spans the width of the home on a lush, level, appx 1/3 acre lot with palm and grapefruit trees. The 1950’s living room wall mural is a treasure. Some renovations were begun including insulation, some new wiring in 2012 and new well in 2008. Who is ready to restore her? Cash offers only please.
