Own this well-maintained mid-century modern home on almost 1/3 of an acre of live oaks, bamboo, and fruit trees! The property is located only two blocks from historic downtown Lake Wales and four blocks from the lake and its paved trail. The home features a beautiful front porch that is perfect for an afternoon nap. Passing through the glassed-in front entrance, you will walk onto a beautiful “backgammon” wood floor gracing a huge open living area. All the original hardwood floors are also found in the bedrooms and hallway. The large eat-in kitchen is newly tiled and has a newer dishwasher, modern refrigerator, and range. The kitchen area is an add-on to the original home and is cooled by its own high-efficiency window unit, while the main house is centrally air-conditioned and heated. The single large bathroom has been updated with an acrylic tub, shower, and luxury vinyl flooring. All windows have rolling shades that stay with the home. Stylish vintage furniture will also convey with the home. And if that wasn't enough, there is a detached one-car garage with a workshop space large enough for a motorcycle or lawn tractor. The ample backyard is partially fenced and features a patio with a cast-concrete table and grill, a chicken coop (that could use some clearing up), and newly planted fruit trees. Don't let this vintage Florida home get away! Schedule your private showing today and own a piece of history in downtown Lake Wales.
