Property Description

Get ready to be blown away by this stunning, fully remodeled mid-century modern home. This house as all the conveniences of new construction along with one-of-a-kind architectural details not seen anywhere else in Gainesville. Enter through a modern mahogany front door into a stunning foyer with floor-to-ceiling marble slabs original to the home. Walk into a breathtaking open concept kitchen and dining featuring a vaulted 14 foot ceiling, 16 floor slider to a covered patio, and sixteen clerestory windows to look out at the tree line on all sides of the house. The modern kitchen features all plywood navy soft close cabinets, carrara quartz countertops, stainless kitchenaide appliances, gas range, and waterfall edges on the massive ten-foot island. The dining area features a twelve-foot wet bar with double wine refrigerators, and floating acacia wood shelves. The spacious living room has tons of natural light and a massive original brick wall and fireplace with a hand-crafted brass fireplace hood original to the home. This versatile floor plan has everything you need for a growing family. There are four-bedroom suites, all with private ensuite bathrooms and walk in closets. Three of the bedroom suites are located off a family room which could also serve as a movie room, playroom, or homework room, each bedroom with a full renovated bathroom and cedar lined walk-in closet. On the opposite side of the house, the fourth bedroom suite has two closets, a full bathroom, and an original brick accent wall, this suite could be a great home office, guest suite, or master bedroom if you desire a split floor plan. New Luxury Laminated Wood Plank floors installed seamlessly throughout the entire home, with all new bathrooms featuring floor to ceiling tile enclosures for the tubs/shower, new vanities, and fixtures throughout. Enter from the two-car garage into the fully finished drop zone / laundry room with space for all of the family’s stuff, including a sink, large folding area, and storage closet. The exterior is a combination of vintage diamond block (front), Ocala block, and stucco, with new aluminum sofit/fascia trim that will never have to be painted. The lot is .4 acres with mature landscaping, a fully fenced back yard with fruit trees (grapefruit, orange, and tangerine), a new driveway, walkway, and gravel parking pad. You cannot beat this family friendly location, close to everything Gainesville has to offer yet surrounded by conservation land. Walk to the bus or bike to campus or hop on to the wooded trail system for short walks to Green Acres Park, Clear Lake Nature Park, and John Mahon Park.
