Description

'So THIS is where they keep all the light!' (bonus points if you know the movie) You won't wonder where any longer after visiting this perfectly appointed, full of light, historic DeFuniak Springs 1900 era home. Ideally located, just one block from Lake DeFuniak (with new swimming area), tennis courts and walk to lively downtown for restaurants & shopping. Gleaming heart pine floors, crown moulding & gas ready brick fireplace are just a few details that await you. Masterfully designed kitchen with pull out drawers, island, granite counters, under cabinet lighting & instant access to the back screened porch and covered parking. The downstairs bedroom + 1 full bath, could utilize the adjoining living room & function more like a separate living suite. As often is the case with historic home,these rooms may perform multiple functions, depending upon preference. One may wish a grand formal dining, while another may prefer rather to use as a larger living room, complimented by a dining/breakfast room off the kitchen. Many possibilities exist, with various light-filled rooms. (Be sure to ask about the tale of the bay window on the front formal room for a fascinating history lesson - or at least a most entertaining tale.) A powder bath is conveniently located downstairs, adjacent to a clever pass through laundry room with convenient folding counter. Once upstairs, discover the oversized master suite along with 2 other bedrooms and another full bath, for a total of 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths. The spacious master has a connecting room to the master bath which would be used as dressing room, sitting room, exercise room or ...? The master bath has been fully updated with all the modern amenities including double vanity, granite countertop, tiled shower and clawfoot soaking tub. While surprising for a home from this era, closet space is abundant in this owner's suite! The interior has been freshly painted, floors have a fresh protectant coat of polyurethane and it is in show ready condition. There is a line from the same movie as before that says, "I've died and gone to real estate heaven!" Rarely do homes in this excellent condition come on the market. Don't miss it!
