Single Family Residence
Backup Contracts requested: A property brimming with authentic “Old Florida” charm and Palm trees, this 1926 Mediterranean Revival home welcomes you from a quiet, cobblestone street tucked into the bustling College Park neighborhood. It is located just steps away from a walking path around Lake Adair in the Lake Adair-Lake Concord Historic District. Having received much love and attention to detail over the years, the recent addition of a light-filled, eat-in kitchen opens onto an original, arched loggia and a poolside patio for seamless indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. The dreamy, conscientiously designed cook’s kitchen features wide plank floors, Thermador appliances, Quartz countertops, custom cabinetry, and Italian glazed backsplash tiles. The room’s dining area includes a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, separate beverage refrigerator, and bar sink. Newly refinished highlights of the private, backyard oasis include tropical-meets-Mediterranean landscape design, a heated saltwater pool, Travertine tile patios, summer kitchen with grill, ample counter space and sink, built-in spa, gently cascading fountain, and outdoors sound system. Original, classical features--such as arched double-French doorways, terracotta tile roofs, hardwood floors, stucco walls, ornamental ironwork, and balconets--grace both the main house (3 BR, 3.5 Bath) and the vine-covered, Villa-style pool house (two-story, 1 BR, 1.5 Bath). Pool house improvements include a ground-floor entertainment center with surround sound, a fully equipped wet bar, custom cabinetry and bookcases, and an enclosed laundry unit. The renovated second story features an airy guest suite with an under-counter refrigerator, bar with sink, and deluxe full shower bath. The second story of the main house provides the comforts of a full bathroom for each of the three bedrooms. The master bathroom offers fresh new tile, fixtures, lighting, and spa-like shower. The well-maintained, original hardwood floors connect all the rooms upstairs, including a library that opens to the hallway from a nook flooded with natural light and flanked by built-in, floor-to-ceiling bookcases. Structurally sound with modern conveniences, other important updates include: all new downstairs powder bath, laundry room off the kitchen, new plumbing for all bathrooms, Generac natural gas generator with automatic transfer switch, spray-foam insulation, tankless water heaters, sloped basement floor and sump-pump, outdoor lighting, landscape irrigation system, outdoor shower, and 3-zone security system. Unbeatable location in beautiful College Park convenient to interesting shops & a variety of local restaurants. Downtown Orlando is just minutes away as well as two major hospital systems. Just across Colonial Drive find Creative Village including UCF and Valencia College Campuses, Professional Basketball and Soccer stadiums within a mile. Coming Soon to the area the Packing district will include a new YMCA, City tennis courts, walking trails, and the 4 Roots Food Hall.
