A rare opportunity to own a piece of Gainesville history! Built in the early 1870s this historic gem was originally situated on a large swath of land a block South from its current location. It was moved to the corner of NE 6th Street and 6th Avenue in the mid-1920s and sits on .24 acres. The home is of the Italianate style of architecture and was one of the earliest homesteads in the Duckpond Neighborhood. This 2820 square foot beauty boasts 5 bedrooms and 2 baths, plus large parlor rooms and sitting rooms on each of its two floors. Three covered porches and towering trees provide shelter and shade. The windows and 12 foot ceilings were designed for cross breezes to naturally aerate and cool. Lovingly enhanced by one owner for the past 29 years, this unique home provides an open palette for the next owner to enjoy its beauty while making it their own. The floors and the entire frame of the home are original heart pine wood. The metal, standing seam roof was installed in 2017. The entire home was re-wired and re-plumbed in 2000. All windows have been upgraded with new ropes and pulls. Plus there is a separate garage and shed along with a yard large enough for vegetable gardens, a pool or both! This one of a kind home is one short block away from the Duckpond and two blocks from the beautiful Thomas Center. Downtown Gainesville is a short walk or quick bike ride away. You will love living in your own piece of history. Make it yours today.
