Description

Charm and warmth describe this traditional ranch-style home in High Springs. Enjoy lusterous oak flooring in perfect condition and warm pine paneling throughout. Typical of a home built in 1958, the front entry opens into a spacious living room with a large "picture" window which lights up the room and affords a wide view of the beautifully landscaped yard. A full-length cushioned settee bench under the window creates a cozy spot to catch a nap or to start another chapter in a favorite book. Off the living room is a den ideal for a home office, a library, or the TV room. The kitchen, entered from the den, has French doors which open onto a spacious back screened porch. There's an add-on screened area accessed from the porch which is perfect for potted plants protected from harm but open to the sun and rain. From the living room access to the three bedrooms is from a central hallway. The hall bathroom and the bath off the den both feature soft blue tile typical of the time. The back corner bedroom has its own screened porch with a wood deck, a great place for some private time. In the center of the house is the third bedroom, repurposed from the original formal dining room which was open to both the living room and the kitchen. From a side street, the driveway leads to the single-car garage and the back door which opens to the den and kitchen areas. Stairs to the basement are accessed from the central bedroom. Natural breezes can be enjoyed with the windows open while using the whole-house fan. Recent improvements include: Roof shingle replacement in 2016. HVAC replacement in2012. New water heater in 2020. Out back is a shed with an open space perfect for storing yard maintenance equipment. It also has a workshop room with a built-in work bench. Near the shed is a well, long unused but which could be operational again. The half acre lot (oversized for the neighborhood) has a wide variety of blooming trees and shrubs, including several mature dogwoods and a huge live oak with spreading branches. Old growth hedges provide excellent privacy in regard to neighboring homes in the back and on the west side. The post office is only three blocks away, and it takes about ten minutes to walk to the popular downtown business district where four restaurants, antique and gift shops, and the town microbrew draw crowds every night of the week. An advantage to living in High Springs is that it's halfway between Gainesville and Lake City. Quick access the area parks, rivers and springs affords opportunities for getting out in nature. The new owners of this home will enjoy a quality living experience hinting at a by-gone time.
