Large pool home in Kirkwood

Large Mid-Century home in Kirkwood

 

 

Built in 1950, this house sits squarely in the middle of the mid-century period and retains many great details.  When you walk in the front door, you're greeted by built-in storage with translucent paneling, allowing for maximum light while offering privacy in the dining area.  A living/dining space opens to a large Florida room with cracked tile floors and large plate glass windows, offering sweeping views of the back yard, pool, and wetland preserve in the rear of the house. 

Mid-century character shows most clearly in the bathrooms of the house, all three of which feature period tile, and one retains a clever period cabinet.  In truly fantastic shape, the characteristic colors of the early 50s are all represented.  With a minimum of effort, these period pieces could really be made to shine.

The true strength of the house lies in its potential for entertaining and flexible use of space.  With plenty of room for large gatherings inside, the house also opens to a patio and swimming pool in the back yard, giving you the ability to host grand gatherings in a Floridian setting.  With a split plan, the house could also boast a separate in-law suite or rental apartment.  Additionally, a large bonus room would make a great game-day headquarters.

Situated blocks from UF Health/Shands and the VA hospital, and conveniently located to 441 and I-75, this house has room to grow and would be great as an investment property or a home.  Don't hesitate to call us today!
