Immaculate craftsman-style home in Thornton Park on one of Orlando’s most desirable brick streets. Just three blocks from Lake Eola, this charming 1925 classic has been completely renovated with extraordinary care, adding modern refinement and convenience while preserving the historic elegance of the property. The entire exterior has been freshly painted, from the Rockwellesque front fence to the wraparound porch and its tapered columns. No expense was spared on the period-appropriate architectural details found throughout the interior, including stained crown molding, window casings, and solid wood doors. These elements perfectly compliment the original heart of pine wood floors, which were restored with a luxurious matte finish. The expansive kitchen features custom two-tone, solid wood Medallion cabinetry, granite counters with a farmhouse sink, and stainless-steel appliances including a natural gas Jenn-Air downdraft range. Open to the kitchen is a cozy dinette and spacious family room, filled with natural light thanks to French doors and windows across the rear of the home. The dining room is a magnificent setting for dinner parties, with another pair of French doors leading to the screened side porch and its picturesque wood swing. Double glass doors lead to the library, where custom built-ins fill the opposite wall. Upstairs, the master suite features a custom walk-in closet and spa-like bathroom with mosaic tile flooring, dual sinks, granite vanities, claw foot tub and separate shower. Both additional bedrooms have large closets, and one has a screen-enclosed sleeping porch--sure to be one of your favorite spaces in this unique home. Also located on the second floor is the laundry room with custom built-in shelves and cabinetry, and another nicely appointed full bath. Fabulous outdoor living space includes a large, partially covered deck with steps leading down to a park-like private garden and patio. The flexible floor plan makes this warm and welcoming home extremely livable, with the library easily used as a formal living room, home office, or fourth bedroom. Additional amenities include an entirely repainted interior, 9-foot ceilings, gas hookup for an outdoor grill, two HVAC systems, central vacuum, walk-in basement, and brick-paver driveway. Entire home was rewired, replumbed, reinsulated, and renovated with wood casement or double-hung dual-pane windows. It is a one-of-a-kind gem that must be seen to be fully appreciated.
