Built in the late 1800's, this lovely historic large home still maintains the beautiful characteristics of its origins, like hardwood floors, hallway chandelier, crown moldings and high ceilings, while including all the modern comforts for travelers and innkeepers.

Situated in a small historic town center, it is still conveniently located only 50-70 miles of both the Tampa Bay area and Orlando's many attractions, 15-20 minutes drive to the quaint local beaches, many beautiful local parks and forests, fishing and golfing spots.

The home is on almost an acre right in the heart of town a block off the main street in a quiet neighborhood with large Spanish moss covered oaks. Accessible to all the local cafes, parks, post office, banking, shops, etc., it is still peacefully situated with its own lush, green landscaped lawns and a half acre of private woods. The outdoor spaces include a wide side yard bordering a quiet, brick, dead end street, a large 1/4 ac rear yard that is fenced and partially shaded with large trees, a large terraced deck and screened room just off the rear breezeway that is great for entertaining and grilling, and, a secluded screened room in the 1/2 acre of woods and paths, perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the birds in your own private retreat space.

The street level floor of the house is handicap accessible and has an entry foyer, a parlor, a large living room (20 x 25) with two daybeds overlooking the rear yard, a library/card room, a dining room that can seat 18-20, a butler's pantry with built-in cupboards, a large kitchen lined with cupboards and shelving with a double ceramic sink, electric stove/oven and overhead microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice-maker in the door and bottom freezer, a reverse osmosis water filtration system, and, the original ironing board mounted in a wall cupboard. There is also a large bedroom and bath with walk-in shower off the main foyer, along with a lockable linen closet for supplies.

The washer and dryer sit on the breezeway just outside the kitchen, along with a large scrubbing sink. There are four fireplaces in the home that are not currently being used but have the gas log inserts in place – they are in the living room, parlor, library, and one downstairs in the separate suite’s living space (see below). The house also has a water softener/filtration system.

The second floor has a beautiful chandelier over the hallway banister, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths - one bath with tub/shower is off the end of the hallway and the other has a shower and is a jack-and-jill bathroom between two of the guest rooms.

Since the house is situated on a sloping part of the yard, there is an outside, separate entrance off the rear to the remaining living space - a lovely 500 sf suite with bedroom, living space and bathroom that could serve as an owner's quarters if desired (currently included in the guest room/bath count on the listing).

The garage is a spacious two and a half car garage and has an unfinished bathroom in it (not included in the bathroom count above) with automatic doors. There is also a 24' square fenced paddock behind the garage suitable for storing yard equipment.

We have been using the property as a vacation rental and small retreat space (as well as enjoying it for our own large family reunions) for the last 4 years, receiving 5 star reviews from our guests. We are simply ready to move on to other projects and 'play more'.

Our types of guests have been wedding parties (there is a wedding venue just blocks away), golfers (world renowned golfing nearby), sports teams competing in the area, families for reunions, weddings and funerals, small retreat groups, and, business teams working locally. The property has done very well even without any effort at marketing beyond placing it on a few holiday retreat websites. A true marketing program could easily double the traffic.
