  • Description
    Here is the canvas, now you paint the picture. Start in 1885 in a remote, rural area with the first local post office, when Florida's population was just crossing over 338,000. Farms proliferated the scenery, and citrus agriculture was the local economy. Built on a firm foundation, this center of social interaction and communication was positioned on the north side of the ridge to enjoy the breeze from Lake Weir. Structurally reinforced, added onto through generations, refurbished, improved, and now entering the era of the information age, your next home features modern day luxuries such as central heating and air (as of February 2023), luxurious kitchen and laundry facilities, contemporary farmhouse stylings and finishes. All the while, it offers original, handmade, built in cabinets on the main level, Victorian era stair rails, and the charm and personality of a 138 year old home that can't be designed and built in 2023. Dual staircases lead you up to three oversized bedrooms, each with their own updated bathroom, and an array of windows overlooking pastoral and native Florida scenery in every direction. Your main level is expansive with many original, handcrafted, built in bookcases, cabinets, and drawers; a separate study area; built in shelving; and character that will delight every guest and visitor. The dining room fits the largest table you can find and has radiant light filtering in, throughout the day, from two sides of the room through multi paned French doors. The modern kitchen glistens with arabesque mosaic glass tile backsplash, granite of a character so unique I cannot find a name for it, leather grey high end cabinetry, and a ceramic farmhouse sink overlooking the sprawling acreage. Storage is never needed with the additional space at the butler's pantry and bonus cabinetry in the service area. There is nothing like your foyer adorned with a wall of reclaimed, original siding leading to your bonus room and full bath on main, now the perfect conversation room, that was added when the original purchaser from the US Postal Service was unable to climb the stairs any longer, and made this space; colloquially known as the "Captains Suite", for "Biggie" Douglas, a pillar of the community and successful member of the local "orange" economy. Your home has been passed down through four generations and has been loved, cherished, and cared for, now ready for you to relish and thrive in its delight. So, what do you want? A bed and breakfast hosting visitors to the Villages? A space for raising little loved ones who are home schooled and raise their own chickens, goats, and garden? A reclusive retreat after caring for others at the local medical center? An event destination for farmhouse weddings? A vacation destination? A local winery, delivering one of a kind wines from your underground cellar? Modern conveniences are never more than 10 minutes away and the surrounding agricultural, open land areas continue to give you the feel of being far away. Entertainment is nearby at Eaton's Beach and other Lake Weir community centers, and the shopping and dining options in the surrounding areas leave you an endless list of options for enjoying the evening out of the house. Your wellbeing and the wellbeing of those you love will have endless opportunities to explore and grow. Welcome to central Florida. Welcome to Weirsdale. The remodeling was not done to be an investment sale. It was done to be lived in by the owner.
