Historic Masterpiece on Lake Jackson

Welcome to this Mediterranean Revival Classic located on the shores of Lake Jackson. Property was built by, Leo M. Elliot in 1919, who also
designed the well known Kenilworth Lodge. This was once the home of H. Orvel Sebring, one of the founding fathers of Sebring and has only had 3 owners. A property like this only comes on the market once every few decades. Even though the property was built in 1919 it is structurally sound and has every major component updated. Home still has the characteristics of its original footprint yet has many modern updates. This home features 3,956 Living Square Feet of under air conditioned space and over 5,900 Total Square feet of under roof in the main home. The property is situated on a 1.019 acre of lakefront property to Lake Jackson. This home has a westerly sunset view all year long and they definitely could rival Key West. Additionally the home has a detached garage and a full apartment / mother in-law quarters. Perfect for guest too! The home features 4 full bedrooms, all upstairs, 2 bathrooms upstairs and a half bath downstairs. From the moment you walk through the lead glass doors you will see this nostalgic grand staircase that has been well preserved and is miniature replica of the legendary Kenilworth Lodge. Flooring is made of Miami-Dade Heart of Pine and has withstood the stand of time and looks absolutely stunning. To the left is the main formal dining room and to the right is the formal living room. The living rooms main focal point is the marble natural gas fireplace. There is an additional space beyond the living room that is a perfect setting for a home office and also features a natural gas fireplace. This space has its own entrance from the front of the home. There is a screened enclosed porch overlooking the lake with a jet tub, perfect place to end your day! The office features original lead glass windows and measures 10 wide x 27 long. The dining room has a butler's pantry adjoining to the kitchen. The kitchen has wood cabinets and some original glass work embedded in them, matching refrigerator cover and large stove. The farm house sink appears to original too. There is a Mitsubishi vent-less wall-mounted air conditioner that efficiently cools this side of the home. There is a dinette area overlooking the pool and lake. Upstairs on the lakeside is the master owners suite. This space has converted the "sleeping-porches" into the vanity dressing area and overlooks the lake. The owners suite bathroom has an additional sink, walk in shower and claw foot tub. The other lakeside bedroom has a walk in closet and also has the "sleeping-porch" enclosed for more space. Spectacular sunsets are viewed from this space daily. The front bedrooms are large in size and have a Jack n Jill bathroom. This bathroom was remodeled several years back and features a walk in shower. Additional closet space is in the hallway. There is a partially finished basement that has a wine distillery and a wine bar. Tons of extra storage is also a benefit to this space. Imagine entertaining your guest in your very own wine bar. The detached garage is just steps away and is 22x22 with an automatic garage door opener. Step down the side stairway and enter your full apartment with a large concrete porch area that is private to this residence. Round the corner is the open air pool complete with a tropical mural and perfect space for entertaining. This property is located on Lake Jackson. Lake Jackson is a 3,212 sandy ridge bottom lake and is considered the "Crown Jewel" of Sebring. There is a health path/sidewalk going around the entire lake for all to enjoy. Home is also in the Downtown CRA District and is eligible for exterior grants every year for facade grants. Property was put in the National and Local Historic Registry. Being the fact the home is a mixed use zoning area you could essentially use 25% of the homes square footage for a business.
