Picturesque 1925 Tudor Revival style home nestled on a beautifully landscaped rare DOUBLE LOT on tree-lined, original brick-paved streets in the Fern Creek/Lake Lawsona Historic District of downtown Orlando. This charming character home boasts over 3,000 square feet of living space with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and enclosed sunroom porches. Located just a few blocks is everything downtown Orlando has to offer, such as the farmers market at Lake Eola on the weekends and the boutiques, restaurants and bars of Thornton Park to the West, and the historic Washington Street Bridge with the adjoining Dickson Azalea and Langford Parks and the new trendy Milk District to the East.
Ample outdoor entertaining spaces, featuring a large park-like back yard with a deck and gazebo, expansive lawn, beautiful landscaping with mature, moss covered live oak trees and FernCreek running along the rear property line. The front yard, defined by azalea hedges, features a brick-lined gravel patio that is the perfect spot for relaxing among fragrant shrubs and flowers.
A formal foyer, rare among historic Orlando homes, welcomes you into a spacious living room with a working gas fireplace with the original 1925 tiled hearth. The formal dining room features bay windows overlooking the beautiful landscaping. The flowing layout of the first floor offers many lifestyle options with its split bedroom plan and multi-use living spaces including an enclosed sunroom porch. The den adjacent to the living room can be used as another bedroom, media room or play room. The rear sunroom can easily used to enlarge the kitchen which overlooks the lush back yard. A sun-filled staircase leads to the second floor featuring a large master suite with the second working gas fireplace and a front sitting or dressing area filled with natural light - perfect for lounging or reading a book.
The second, rear master bedroom suite features a light and airy space with lots of windows. This large room has its own separate entrance from the rear of the house which could be used as short-term rental or in-law suite. There is a fully walkable 10-foot tall temperature-controlled and insulated attic that runs the full length of the home for extra storage which can also be finished into 700+ square feet of additional living space.
This rare property has so many amazing possibilities with its attractive R2 zoning - including splitting the vacant lot to build a new house, or to sell it to another buyer. Other potential options include expanding the home’s existing footprint, building a detached garage/mother-in-law suite/short-term rental or income apartment in the rear.
