This is the urban oasis you have been looking for. Just a bit shy of 2,000 SF and two stories. Historic hardwood floors throughout with vaulted wood ceiling in the main living room, two downstairs bedrooms, and full bathroom with walk-in shower. Straight ahead, you will love the granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and modernized and refinished original wood cabinets. New hot water heater and AC system. Upstairs, enjoy the private master bedroom with its own bathroom and walk-in closet, all opening onto a huge sundeck in the back and floor-to-ceiling windows in the front for great natural light. Unwind on the massive upstairs patio with a glass of wine or beer after a long day at work, or watch rocket launches go up from the Cape, or fireworks over Lake Eola. Off of the upstairs patio, you'll find the perfect work-from-home office separated from the main house to give you the peace you need to finish your work and with its own climate control. What really sold us on this property, though, is the gorgeous fenced backyard complete with hot tub, greenhouse, koi pond with waterfall, barbeque area, mango, orange, mulberry, and other unique specimen flowering trees, and a storage shed/workroom. Where else can you have your private paradise to relax so close to downtown? One block from the highly coveted Hillcrest Foreign Language Magnet School and a 5 - 10 minute walk to Lake Eola, Publix, great restaurants, the YMCA, local post office or Thornton Park. Less than 10 minutes to ORMC & Winnie Palmer, Florida Hospital, Orlando City Soccer, Orlando Magic, and restaurants and nightlife downtown. Seriously, this place is awesome.
