Vintage ambiance is found here in Gainesville’s popular Duck Pond Historic District. Mansions and cottages showcasing old world character and a variety of architectural styles are nestled along sidewalks, lanes and boulevards shaded by ancient oak trees adorned with Spanish moss. 

 

This lovely example of a classic 1949 design sits proudly on a spacious corner lot showing off professional landscaping design and adorable curb appeal. 

 

The interior is welcoming, bright & cheerful with original REAL wood floors, high baseboards and lots of windows. 

 

The best part?  This home was thoroughly remodeled and updated by the previous owner in 2008: roof, wiring, plumbing, heating & air, bathrooms, kitchen and windows all new in 2008.  A wise eye for detail retained the original solid wood doors and vintage hardware. 

 

The flexible floor plan accommodates a wide variety of uses.  Enjoy 3 bedrooms plus an office or 4 bedrooms all with pleasant views.  Starting a family?  The bedroom next to the master suite is right-sized for a nursery. 

 

There’s a huge great room with gas fireplace and there’s a large dining room. 

 

The kitchen has wood cabinetry, tall uppers, granite counters, glass tile backsplash, pantry and dining peninsula with breakfast bar for two.  It’s fully equipped, with all stainless-steel appliances: Gas oven/range, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and instant hot water. 

 

Have your morning cup of coffee just outside the kitchen on the large screen porch with views of front and back yards. 

 

Large groups are easily accommodated on the huge custom pavered patio area. 

 

Into aqua-culture? A small koi pond is in back of the 1 car carport. 

 

The laundry room in the carport has a washtub sink and workbench area.  Washer & dryer are included. 

 

All this ambiance is just minutes away from downtown amenities and the UF campus.  Park the car and take a stroll to see why the Duck Pond area is a perennial favorite among both locals and new arrivals.
