The recently renovated 3/2 Cracker Style Florida home in North Florida is the result of the United States Federal Project under Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s administration known as the Cherry Lake Farms Project. During 1935, artisans who integrated locally grown pine trees as well as other native hardwood built the home. This home for sale is on 4.75 acres of land with approximately 2.5 acres of pastureland that is fully fenced making it great for horses or cattle. This 3BR/2BA home has had modern upgrades and has kept its integrity. The owners have kept the integrity of the historic home due to their love of the beautifully detailed wood in a pattern groove and original to the house. The refurbished hardwood floors, bead board ceiling, oversized antique doors with hardware and knotty pine walls give a feeling of warmth as you walk into the home and something you do not see every day. Part of the homes appeal is its scale with perfect dimensions. Not only is the home to be adored but also its setting as it offers serenity through open views of Garden Pond, watching aquatic wildlife in action, smelling clean air, hearing the soft wind as it blows through the century old oak trees. The home offers an area just outside for entertaining guest, in the additional entertainment building with 120 sq ft, built in 2011, heated and cooled, with an 11x11 sq ft screened in porch.
