New Price! Dr. Seuss simply asked, ''Why fit in when you were born to stand out?'' Located just blocks from Lake DeFuniak and downtown, this architect reimagined and redesigned, down to the finest detail...historical gem will draw you in, charming you completely. Original details like heart pine floors, tongue & groove walls and ceilings are met with the more recent glorious family room addition and screened porch overlooking the reflection pool (you can't help but picture spending most of your time relaxing in these 2 amazing spaces)! There are 2 homes: main house & guest house; plus, a separate office and separate shed. The main house is 2 beds/2 baths with 1412sf cloaked in soothing, subtle tones of blues, beige, gray and green. From the street, open the gate and perfectly appointedpicket fenced front yard to the covered front porch. When you enter, you'll see the incredible quality in detail and how every inch...every nook and cranny was utilized to the fullest. The family room addition with storage closets and views to the porch is the place to be. Step out onto the tiled screened porch overlooking the reflection pool. The 640sf guest house boasts a newly built bedroom addition, kitchenette & walk-in storage. Full bath showcases timeless & elegant carrara subway tile bathtub surround. It could be used for guests, a rental, or would be perfect for someone who needs a professional home office with front entrance. Next is the newer construction 14x20 studio/workshop building with sink and bath (perhaps your new art studio?).The reflection pool is in perfect sightline no matter which structure it's viewed from. The property is completely fenced with 2 double gates at the back alley entrance - don't you love a back alley entrance?! This exquisite property has been on the tour of homes before so it may look familiar...and you'll certainly have to go through at least a couple of times just to see and appreciate the many details that are too numerous to try to list here. With the downtown revitalization and the Main Street program, this is your chance to buy in the coveted historic district of DeFuniak while it is still up and coming. Properties like this do not come along every day, so don't miss your chance and schedule a private showing today!
