Experience Old Florida at its best in this beautiful 1903 home in the McIntosh Historic District! The Lane House, built by the Turnipseed family, is located on the main road through downtown, and sits on over 3/4 acres of fenced property, with heritage live oaks, sabal palms, and other mature landscaping. Step inside the broad custom tile foyer to see a fully renovated eat-in kitchen with vintage-style cabinets, farmhouse sink, butcher block counters, and french doors. Nearby is a formal dining room, with original wood floors and fireplace (there are 4 fireplaces in total). Also on the first floor: bathroom with claw foot tub, master bedroom w/ fireplace and huge windows, living room and adjacent family room/office. A french door leads to the second floor staircase, and on the upper level you will find three bedrooms & one renovated bathroom. Current owner has put in brand-new HVAC and ductwork, leveled the foundation, installed a perimeter fence, added period-appropriate light fixtures and fans, installed vintage-style exterior doors and framing, built a new back deck, added a new master bathroom sink, and painted interior throughout (nearly $100k in renovations, list available). This unique home is ready for a new chapter. It is currently zoned residential; however, its prominent location and interior features have commercial and AirBnB/short-term rental potential. Convenient to Ocala or Gainesville, horse country or UF campus. Original homes like this are rarely available!
