Description:

Against a backdrop of green dotted with bursts of colorful landscaping, this downtown residence behind a century-old antique iron fence bids you welcome. Wide steps lead to the wraparound porch where you begin the day with morning coffee and reflect upon it later with evening cocktails. A veritable outdoor living room for most of the year, it’s the spot to read the mail, visit with neighbors passing by and take in the bird’s eye view of the famed domes of Henry Flagler’s nearby church.

Come inside and the first thing you’ll see is an uncommon pattern of maple and cherry floors – rare for an era of pine and oak. A generous space, the living room is awash in diffused natural light courtesy of tall windows and you’ll wish for chilly evenings to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace. Reclaimed maple floors in adjacent family room complement the soft color palette. It’s a great media room with space for a group to watch a movie.

Centrally located, the dining room is accessed from the front hall and family room. A triple window alcove allows for more seating when guests are many. Original swinging door opens to a kitchen renovated to suit the period but with all the modern conveniences. A side door to the covered “mud” room is next to the driveway for easy grocery transfer. Beyond the kitchen, laundry room and full bath flank the morning room and then you’re out to the patios and garden.

Master and two guest rooms occupy the 2nd floor. A large bedroom with southeast exposure, the master is a peaceful retreat at day’s end and the adjoining office could be an en-suite bath. A renovated hall bath serves all three bedrooms at present and all rooms are comfortably sized and sunny.

Few downtown homes boast large lots and this is one. Deep backyard has bricked patios and native plants with equal parts of sun and shade. There’s ample room for pool and guest house. With a long driveway and 2-car garage, you have room for lots of cars -a rarity indeed! We’ll be on the porch…
