The natural beauty of the Florida Park neighborhood provides the ideal setting for this casually elegant 3/2 home on a .5 acre lot. Only a mile from UF and near the commercial activity of 13th Street and downtown, this home feels completely private on a wooded, dead end street, which it shares with foxes, deer, turtles, armadillos, rabbits, and other wildlife. Friendly humans walking their leashed dogs often pass by as well. The front door opens to a foyer and dining area with a view of the lush backyard. Two steps lead to the enormous living room (approximately 26'x17') with 11' ceilings, two 6'x6' windows, a working limestone fireplace, and built-in floor-to-ceiling bookcases. The sliding door opens to a screened porch with ceramic tile flooring. With approximately 24 linear feet of quartz counters, 33 cabinets, a large pantry, counter seating, and brand new appliances, the eat-in kitchen is perfect for cooking and socializing. A separate laundry room and two large closets in the hall provide extra storage on the way to the three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The primary bedroom is surprisingly large (approx. 288 sf), with a walk-in closet, a linen closet, a sliding door to the backyard, and an en suite bathroom with a double vanity, completely remodeled in 2015. All floors in the house are engineered hardwood except for the bathrooms and laundry; new architectural shingle roof in 2021; all new windows and two new sliding doors with integrated shades in 2022; new HVAC (heat pump) in 2023. The front yard was professionally designed and landscaped over 20 years ago and now contains mature camellias, crape myrtles, palms, azaleas, and a lawn that requires almost no maintenance besides mowing. A tile patio and wood/composite deck overlook the fully-fenced back yard, which is intentionally wild and low-maintenance. The back yard includes many Florida-friendly flowering plants, a grapefruit tree, a Meyer lemon tree (both very productive), two small storage sheds and plenty of space for pets and gardening, surrounded by a buffer of woods that provides privacy for humans and habitat for the wildlife that makes Florida Park such a special place to live. The side-facing two-car garage adds 460 square feet to the home and contains a work table, sink, two storage closets, an attic fan, drop-down attic stairs, plenty of wood shelving, and retractable screens that turn the garage into a light, airy, bug-free workspace. The water heater, electrical panel, and HVAC are conveniently located in the garage as well. This unique home, surrounded by fantastic neighbors, has been loved and well maintained by the current owners for the past 19 years. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to live in Florida Park, where nature and culture meet.
