If you're looking to live near UF in a mid-century charmer, you've found Gator Paradise! Built in 1959, this second-owner concrete block home has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths with 2126 SF. Its updates, most recently within the past 5 years, make this darling home truly mid-century modern. Located on just under an acre in a non-deed restricted, non-HOA neighborhood, this property just north of campus has the coveted ADU, Auxiliary Dwelling Unit, zoning. Room to add a 2-car garage with an entire apartment above the garage. The lot spans over 150 ft in the front and is over 290 feet deep, offering: prime location, complete privacy, gorgeous trees, and flexibility to add value with an ADU. The front of the home retained its quaint personality with its decorative, painted-white brick, original ornamental wrought iron columns, and cracked tile-designed porch. The foyer boasts the same beautiful flooring as found on the enticing patio. Gazing into the living space, you will be welcomed home by the rich, white-oak hardwood floors boasting a warm chocolate stain. The hardwood floors flow throughout the living space, dining room, hallway, and 4 bedrooms. The main living area has grand windows that face south and east, providing natural light to filter in throughout the day. Dual pocket doors separate the living space from the dining area; flanking each side of the pocket doors in both the living and dining rooms are original wood built-ins. Loads of light saturate the dining room; access the kitchen via a secondary pocket door. The updated kitchen has three walls of wrap around snow-white cabinetry, refreshed countertops, tile flooring, stainless appliances, and stacked square tile backsplash. In addition, there is a corner pantry for storage. Opposite the pantry is the corner banquet which features bench seating with storage below. Two impressive, fixed picture windows give direct views of the pool, wood deck, and fenced portion of the backyard. The hallway leads to two good-sized bedrooms with ample natural light and good-sized closets. The updated hallway bathroom featuring large porcelain tile, a floating double sink vanity, and a step-in shower. The HVAC closet has built-in shelving for storage; opposite that is the step-in laundry closet with a washer and dryer and a 2021 water heater. The master-bedroom has views of the backyard, pool, and beyond. It sports a generously sized closet with built-in shelves on each side. Its en suite bathroom connects to the third guest bedroom. This updated bath has a double sink vanity, tile floors, and a step-in glass shower with modern coordinating tile and deco tile banding. Next to the master bedroom is the third guest room. While convenient to the full hallway bath, this guest room has direct access to the master bath. Additional updates and features of the home include high-impact windows, light fixtures, and ceiling fans throughout, the 2021 large water heater, a gravel driveway, a cement parking pad for bikes and scooters, and a video security system. Want to explore? Take a walk in your backyard past the leaning shed down to Hogtown Creek, which plays a vital role in Gainesville’s ecology, and it ultimately flows into the aquifer from which Gainesvillians draw their drinking water. A shark tooth may be your reward. The home and property are shown strictly by appointment only.
