Description

Under contract-accepting backup offers. Welcome to a truly unique Arts and Crafts Bungalow, a masterpiece crafted by the pioneer J.F. Townsend himself in 1915. This exquisite residence, a testament to Townsend's craftsmanship and vision, now stands as a showcase of architectural beauty and historical significance. Nestled on a sprawling corner lot, this oasis is adorned with majestic oak trees and mature landscaping, creating a serene and inviting atmosphere. The property boasts not only the MAIN HOME but also a DETACHED 2-CAR GARAGE with a SPACIOUS APARTMENT above, a POOL HOUSE with a half bath, a POOL and an expansive POOL DECK for outdoor entertainment. As you approach the residence, a screened front porch welcomes you, offering a perfect spot to host guests while enjoying the local parades and events that grace Central Ave. Stepping inside, the living room beckons with its distinctive features, including six large diamond muntin windows, original hardwood parquet flooring, a wood-burning fireplace with field tile and a carved mantel, antique arts and crafts chandelier, and crown molding with picture rail. The seamless flow of natural sunlight guides you to the dining room through an arched entry with pocket sliders featuring beveled glass windows. A secluded dining room screened porch provides a peaceful retreat surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors. Each of the three bedrooms boasts an ensuite bathroom and abundant natural light. The primary bedroom, positioned at the rear of the house, features an extensive wall of closet space and a private screened porch overlooking the pool and the original orchid/pool house. One bedroom includes an additional "sleeping porch" with windows on three sides, currently utilized as a den and home office. All 3 bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom. The spacious and bright APARTMENT ABOVE THE GARAGE offers a separate living space with a full bathroom, kitchenette, and bedroom, providing flexibility and privacy. Adjacent to the pool, the original Orchid House, now potentially a pool house or art studio, offers additional comfort with A/C and a half bath, perfect for use as an office space or extra entertaining area. The beautifully maintained yard, visible from every corner of the house and three screened porches, completes the immersive experience. Additional features include a whole-house attic fan, a spiral staircase leading to the massive walkable attic. Conveniently located within a short distance to Downtown Lake Wales and Lake Wailes Park, this Arts and Crafts Bungalow invites you to embrace a historic and luxurious lifestyle, blending the charm of the past with modern comforts.
