Property Description

Welcome to ShadowLawn Cottage, a mid-century modern architectural home nestled in the heart of Gainesville. With 3.5 acres of gorgeous landscaped grounds planted with exotic trees and shrubs and a creek flowing through the edge of the property, this 4 bedroom 3.5 bath 2-story home started out with very humble beginnings as a one-room stone cottage. As the home changed ownership, the home grew in proportions. Historically, this land was originally a Spanish grant, subdivided into smaller parcels. It’s current structure has its origins thanks to a Mrs. Dennis (nee Ruth). It’s been rumoured that Mrs. Dennis’ Uncle Babe Ruth came to the cottage for a visit after his retirement from baseball. This home consists of the main house, a sewing room separated by a vine-covered courtyard, a laundry /wash house, a swimming pool and a bomb shelter. Bring this baby back to life. It oozes untapped potential! Perhaps as an Airbnb or whatever your heart desires, this charming home is calling for its new owner.
