This is your opportunity to own a piece of history! This iconic Greek Revival plantation style home on Ortega Point sits in one of Jacksonville's most prestigious historic neighborhoods. Built in 1909, this unique home is situated on a rare 1.23 acre lot distinguished by two iconic, sprawling live oaks. It is one of the oldest homes in Old Ortega and believed to be the oldest home on the Point; it is an integral part of the island's deep and rich history.
This home has been lovingly cared for by its current owner for more than 30 years and is in the process of being renovated. It is time to pass the torch to the next owner to complete the restoration. This home features large, open living spaces. Oversized windows and eleven sets of French doors flood the entire house with natural light throughout the day. There are heart pine floors throughout, architectural character in the columns and moldings, two beautiful antique chandeliers and original sconces adorning the entry and formal living room.
Downstairs features a large, bright, inviting entry, generously proportioned formal living and dining rooms, and two bonus rooms that could serve as office and/or library spaces. The large kitchen space can easily be expanded to suit a larger modern kitchen/family room layout also boasts a large walk-in pantry. As an added bonus, there is a usable daylight basement perfect for a wine cellar or game room.
Upstairs are four spacious bedrooms with large closets, 3 1/2 baths, a laundry room and a bonus room. The master suite has 2 large walk-in closets, space for a private office, and a garden tub with separate shower. There also is space on the third floor that could be finished and used as additional living space.
Outside, enjoy the river breezes while entertaining your guests on the vast, columned wraparound porch and estate size lawn.
Lot may possibly be subdivided by cutting out one or two ¼ acre lots at the front of the property for development. Buyer to verify with COJ Planning & Development
