A Mid-Century Modern Retreat. You have to come see this one-of-a-kind historic home, located just 10 minutes north of Mount Dora in beautiful Eustis, Florida. Built in 1961 by a local citrus grower, this three-bedroom, three-bath gem is a blend of Mid-Century Modern and Craftsman styles of architecture. The elegant brick home has the solid feel of a Craftsman, while inside, the newly-refinished original wood floors and handcrafted woodwork offer a feeling of comfort and relaxation. One of the key mid-century modern features in the home is a double-sided gas fireplace surrounded by original ‘60s mosaic tile. The light and airy enclosed Florida room with terrazzo floors overlooks a tiled patio and ample fenced-in back yard, resplendent with fruit trees and lush foliage, including a grape arbor and raised-bed herb garden.
The cook will love incorporating the herbs into meals prepared on a gas stove in the beautifully renovated kitchen, complete with new cabinets, quartz countertops, appliances, backsplash, and slate floors. Off the kitchen is the dining room, which is open to the rest of the living area. Guests will love all the light and openness provided by expansive Pella double-hung windows throughout the house. A gorgeous master bath was added to the home, creating an en-suite for privacy and relaxation. Two additional large bedrooms provide generous cedar-lined closets for clothing and storage. The bedrooms share a large bath, which has been updated, but the immaculate original yellow and blue tile was kept in place. The third bath is off of the large laundry room. To see this home is to experience a walk back in time to the artistic architectural elements characteristic of Mid-Century Modern style, complemented by modern features that today’s buyers expect in a home. This is the home you’ve been waiting for!
