From the Zillow listing:

 

This 1929 craftsman is reminiscent of the days of true woodwork. A real gem surrounded by palms, camellias, azaleas, along with many other old Florida landscape must haves to set off the historic feel. The real charm lies in the homes original pine floors and tongue and ceilings that have been planed and refinished. All the exterior paint has been sanded and hand scraped to reveal the natural wood and given a fresh coat of paint. The electrical has been partly updated as well as the plumbing. The windows were left original yet the sash ropes were redone. The roof was replaced in 2009. There is plenty of space for the family with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths and large 12 foot ceilings for an open feel. French doors open onto a spacious Florida room with a brick fireplace absolutely perfect for game day, entertaining, and relaxing. Off the Florida room is an expansive brick patio great for grilling. The back entrance leads to a detached garage. Inside the garage there is plenty of storage as well as a bomb shelter. A quick walking distance to Historic High Springs, restaurants, entertainment, shopping, and minutes from the springs as well as I75 and Gainesville. With the mixed use zoning you can work where you live.
