Description

Welcome to 1215 King Ave, a stunning embodiment of historic charm nestled in the heart of Lakeland's Dixieland Historic District. This 1925 Craftsman bungalow exudes timeless elegance from its large open front porch, adorned with classic columns and exposed rafter tails, to its meticulously preserved interior features. Stepping inside, you're immediately greeted by the warmth of a brick fireplace, setting a cozy ambiance in the open dining room and living area. The character of this home shines through with built-in shelves, reminiscent of the craftsmanship of its era, complemented by gleaming hardwood floors and beautifully detailed 6.5 inch baseboards throughout. A delightful surprise awaits with a bonus room strategically situated between the kitchen and dining area, boasting original built-in cabinetry, adding both functionality and charm to the space. Practicality meets aesthetics with a convenient mudroom leading into the kitchen from the side of the house, offering seamless access for daily activities. Both guest and master bathrooms have been tastefully renovated, offering modern amenities while maintaining the integrity of the home's character. The master suite features a spacious walk-in closet, ensuring ample storage space for your needs. Adding to the convenience, an inside laundry room has been thoughtfully renovated to streamline household chores. Every detail has been carefully considered, from the vintage crystal doorknobs adorning each door to the updated plumbing and piping, ensuring peace of mind for years to come. Recent updates including a new roof in 2020 and a full rewiring of the house in 2017, coupled with the installation of new vinyl double-paned windows throughout the house, offer both aesthetic appeal and functional efficiency, while the four original front windows maintain the home's historic authenticity. Modern comforts blend seamlessly with historic charm, with the inclusion of a Nest thermostat, enhancing energy efficiency while maintaining optimal comfort levels. Situated in a friendly and walkable neighborhood and less than a 4 minute walk down to Lake Hunter, this home offers not just a place to live, but a lifestyle imbued with the rich tapestry of Lakeland's history and community spirit. Location is everything, and this property boasts proximity to downtown Lakeland, less than 2 miles away. Enjoy a lively urban lifestyle with coffee shops, shopping, entertainment, and great dining options all within easy reach. This home is close to a number of other popular local attractions, including Clevelands Heights Golf Course, dog parks, Lake Morton, Lake Mirror, Dixieland, Lakeside Village Shopping, Lakeland Tennis Courts, Common Ground Park, Bonnet Springs Park, and so much more! With easy access to Tampa and Orlando via the Polk Parkway and I-4, you'll have quick and easy access to all of Central Florida, as well as hospitals, airports, Walt Disney World, Legoland, and other theme parks, and even the beautiful beaches of Florida!
