Built in 1903, this home sits on two lots on Floralas historic Fifth Street, just two blocks from beautiful lake Jackson. This is a warm friendly community only 50 minutes from Destin Floridas beautiful sand beaches. This two story home has approximately 4000 square feet of living area. It has large rooms and an open floor plan with 12-1/2 foot ceilings on the main floor. All new 200 amp. Electric, new plumbing, fixtures, windows, heating and cooling. Many of the original heart pine floors were saved in the remodel. The balance of floors are either ceramic tile, or select northern hickory, and northern Cherry laid in a matrix pattern to show off the natural beauty of the wood. The large sun room and kitchen have tile flooring. The kitchen also has 12- foot ceilings with new maple cabinets and appliances. The home has five masonry fireplaces. There are fireplaces in the Library, Dining room, Sun room, Master bath/sitting room, and Master bedroom. You go through 3 foot double bevel leaded glass doors to enter the master bedroom. All bedrooms are large with ample closet space. The master bedroom continues on into the master bath/sitting room. This bath has a large corner Jacuzzi tub with shower and ceramic surround. The first level also has a bath for the quests. Living room, Library and formal dining room are also on the first level. All are large and have 12- foot ceilings. The Library adjoins the Living room through a 10 foot tall arched doorway. There is a solid oak stairway leading to the upstairs. All floors upstairs are northern hardwood of select hickory with 4 small matrix patterns of cherry. These floors are a full 3/4" thick, sanded and then given two coats of polyurethane. There are two large bedrooms upstairs along with a full bath that is a Jacuzzi type with a full ceramic surround. The bedrooms are at the front and back of the house with a large common area in the middle. The back bedroom has an 8 x 16 outside deck. Both bedrooms have 3 foot double bevel leaded glass doors like the master bedroom downstairs. The common area the staircase leads to is approximately 30 x 30 with a nice small setup of maple cabinets and a wet bar. This common area could also probably be made into additional bedrooms, but the grandeur of the room would be lost. The large front porch with wicker swing is a great place to enjoy a book or have a glass of tea and listen to the mocking birds. Alabama has very reasonable property taxes and utilities. Property taxes are low in Alabama. It is a lovely place to retire. The 300,000 price of this house originally included all appliances and most household furnishing. The reduced price of 165,000 is less the appliances and furniture.We are motivated to sell so make offer. Cell Phone 309-221-5354 Have a question? Click here for contact information.
