You’ll fall madly in love with this midcentury classic! My former partner Ron Barry (now with Coldwell Banker Premier Properties) had to step away from full-time real estate for awhile, but this listing came up and he found time to take it on. He asked me to come over and take some shots for him, and of course I said “yes”. I didn’t expect to fall in love with the house, however, and Ron has kindly allowed me to share it with you. This 3-bedroom / 2-bath home is full of the wonderful touches that make midcentury homes so attractive these days: bright wood floors that you’ll want to dance on; formal dining, living and kitchen areas that allow a family to spread out; a huge garage for big fifties-era sedans that (these days) means extra room for kayaks, bikes, or whatever other outside equipment you need stored (there’s even more storage behind the garage!); plenty of windows for lots of light; and a yard so large that it should be able to accommodate a pool without touching the largest oak tree I’ve ever seen on a listing, a live oak that is roughly 6 feet in diameter! This home, while lovely, is dusty and needs a good scrubbing and dusting. The benefit to you is that this classic from the last century could be the steal of this century! Offered At: $295,000.

Size & Price
This wonderful home is 1,362 square feet, and is offered for $295,000.
This is a big, classic, American lot with a huge, fenced backyard. The lot is approximately 90 x 136. It also has the biggest tree I have ever seen on a residential property, a live oak nearly 6 feet in diameter. And the best thing? There should be, assuming helpful city permitting and landscape architect working in conjunction with a pool contractor, plenty of room for a swimming area, all without ever touching the tree. The buyer should verify all measurements.
This home is currently zoned for Ketterlinus Elementary, Sebastian Middle School, and St. Augustine High School.
This home was built in 1963. What else happened in 1963? The average cost of a new home that year was $12,650.00, the average income was $5,807.00, gas cost just 29 cents (!) a gallon, and the average cost of a new car was only $3,233.00. The Beatles released “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “I Saw Her Standing There” and both hit #1 that year. Sadly, President Kennedy was assassinated in November, 1963, also.
