If you have a love of old homes and love restoring - bring this 1922 home on Lake Jackson back to it's former glory! This home has so much to offer wide staircase and hallway. All rooms are a very generous size which is ideal for entertaining. The home has much original hardware, wood trim, hardware, and unique chandeliers in the hallway which are a work of art. With a westerly exposure, you are situated for stunning sunsets in the evening. Homes on this side of Lake Jackson are zone multi-family. This home is located in the CRA district and may have grants available for exterior improvements. This home includes 3 apartments, backyard pool and cabana, and the coolest old boathouse on the lake. Restore this home for your residence, turn it into apartments (potentially 4 in the main house) or perhaps a Bed and Breakfast? Rent the apartments out for the winter or also use as an Airbnb to produce income. The home has a tiled front porch. The front door opens to the foyer and long hallway with a staircase leading upstairs. To the right is the living room with French doors opening to the front porch. The living room has a fireplace and original hardwood flooring throughout the home. Beyond the living rooms is a library with built in cabinetry. To the side of the living room is the sunroom/family room. Moving back to the hallway, to the left is the dining room also with a fireplace. Moving forward from the dining room, to the spacious kitchen with breakfast room offering views of the lake. A stairway from the kitchen leads to the basement. This would be ideal for a wine cave or bonus room. The basement has a bathroom with a shower. An exterior door from the basement allows entrance for a pool/lake bathroom. Just off the kitchen is a butlers pantry or bonus room Step out the backdoor to a covered porch and enclosed porch. The enclosed tiled porch has an entrance from the library. Now back to the foyer to move upstairs to the second floor. You have two full bathrooms, a master bedroom, three generous sized secondary bedrooms, plus a fifth bedroom or playroom/tv room. All bedrooms have large closets which is the typical of the period. In addition you have a full laundry room. There is a beautiful walnut elevator. This is "as is" and has not been used for years. Now to the exterior of the home you have a porte-cochere, detached garage with a 33x 24 apartment. Two other apartments are attached to the home. The pool has a new fence, plus a cabana and outside bar. A new solar system has been installed on the roof. This will provide 14,760 watts of electricity once hooked up. It is "AS IS" and subject to the new owner hooking up. Lake Jackson is a clean, clear 3,500 acre lake with a 10 mile bike and multi-use path around the lake. You are a short walk into town with all the activities on the Circle in Downtown Sebring.
