Single Family Residence
Come see everything this magnificent home in the Lake Cherokee Historic District has to offer. NO HOA! This large property, on a quaint oak lined brick street just south of downtown Orlando, boasts views of Lake Cherokee from the front porch and includes a separate 1 bed/2 bath guest house with a private gated back entrance. The Main House features 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. This beautiful light filled home has the best of Old World charm with a contemporary open floor plan, boasting six sets of double exterior French doors, beautiful hardwood floors, 9 ½’ ceilings, 9” baseboards, crown molding, and Plantation shutters. A tremendous front parlor with decorative fireplace and formal dining room/family room plus a surprisingly large backyard with gorgeous new deck, pergola and covered seating area provide limitless possibilities for entertaining. The kitchen, designed to emulate a 1920’s kitchen, features depression glass knobs, unique Edison bulbs, a 1920’s color scheme, custom 42” Maple cabinets, travertine counters, Kohler cast iron ivory sink, center island cook top, double ovens and a charming custom coffee/wine bar complete with wine and beverage fridges – the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of Joe or gather with friends! There is also easy access to the adjoining laundry room through an antique sliding “barn” door, as well as a laundry shoot from the upstairs Master Bath and a half bath with elegant antique vanity around the corner. The downstairs features an additional bonus sun room/office with travertine floors and beautiful floor-to-ceiling Palladian arched windows, a secret storage compartment, and an arched gallery with interior access to a unique feature in Florida – a small basement. Pass from the kitchen through the arched gallery and ascend the lovely wood and stone staircase with custom balustrade to the arched open library/bonus room and four bedrooms. Two large bedrooms grace the front of the house and share a Jack and Jill bath with vanity plus tub/shower. The Master bedroom faces the back of the house and boasts an en-suite bath with dual pedestal sinks and cabinets with plenty of storage. Relax and unwind in the jetted double tub or enjoy the double travertine and glass shower. The upstairs is rounded out by a fourth bedroom or office/exercise room and an additional hall bath with antique vanity and shower. Above it all lies a generous raftered & windowed attic with great potential to be finished out as a playroom, rec room, extra bedroom, or home theater in the future. Spend your evenings on the spacious deck or around the fire in your private sand fire pit, surrounded by mature Southern Live Oaks. There is also plenty of open outdoor space. The guest house is surrounded by a vinyl fence and has it’s own outdoor oasis complete with a second sand fire pit, Southern Live Oaks and even a “porch” swing hanging from the tree. The guest house has separate utilities, a full kitchen, two full baths (one upstairs and one downstairs), washer & dryer, living and dining space PLUS a large open space upstairs which can be used as bedroom, office and living space. The guesthouse provides wonderful potential for extra family, guests, rental income, or even office space. Centrally located with easy access to both SR 408 and I-4, this home puts all that The City Beautiful has to offer all within about a mile and the best of Central Florida at your fingertips.
