Aficionados of the bungalow will delight in this singular Historic District home designed by and as the personal residence of Fred Henderich, leading architect in Florida in the early 1900s. A classic that gracefully transcends time, its recent extensive renovation seamlessly fused Old World charm from 1900 with 21st century conveniences to match today’s lifestyles. Splendid detail and original elements are happily intact and 2016 saw the addition of a separate 1,000SF cottage used as a studio.

Enjoying just over a 1/4 acre, the property runs from St George to Cordova St on Lake Maria Sanchez and offers a deep front yard with ample area in back. A welcoming front porch beckons you closer so let’s begin your exploration.

Wide sunlit foyer opens to living room on the left. This gathering room features coffered ceiling, built-in bookcases, a fireplace waiting for cooler evening and 4 tall windows for soft natural light. A thing of beauty, the dining room is clad in soft grey with 3/4 wainscot walls topped by a plate rail and the sunshine through vintage diamond-paned windows throws rainbow prisms around the room. Comfortably host everyone you love here.

Adjacent eat-in kitchen is intelligently laid out for 2 or more to work together and it spills out to screened porch where there’s a grilling station with hood and a large area for seating.

2 en-suite bedrooms downstairs will have a waiting list of guests. North bedroom features a wonderful bathroom with modern slipper tub and custom wood vanity. Opening to the sunroom, this becomes a natural suite for extended stays.

Wide stairway with 2 landings leads to the master with generous bedroom, simply lovely bathroom and flex room (think 4th bedroom, office, walk-in closet for 2).

The cottage with wide covered porch faces the lake and is now used as art studio with full bathroom – these secondary “cottages” are highly coveted. Outdoor seating areas are everywhere – pick your spot and begin this new adventure.
