Description

This historic home sits on one fenced acre surrounded by 100 acres of Conservation land. (Including neighbors to the North who own 1000 acres of gorgeous countryside and another neighbor who owns 200 acres of woods.) Deer, wild turkeys and all manner of wildlife abound! Historic Old Bellamy Road is one of the oldest designated highway in Florida, The County treats the road like a National Park, keeping the litter picked upand continual grading so it is smooth and pleasant to drive through the overhanging tree canopy. Runners, walkers and bicyclists take advantage of the 7 hills in 3 miles stretch of the most beautiful part of the road in Fl. The house is famous for having belonged to the sheriff of our County for decades. Because of this, it has been well-maintained over the years. The original part of the house boasts 15 foot ceilings, hand-hewn wood walls, wood floors, 2 massive fireplaces and large breezy rooms with large windows and ceiling fans throughout. This is reputed to be the oldest house in Alachua County but in extremely great condition for its age. The 10 foot porch was rebuilt years ago from the original 8 foot front porch. With rockers and a swing, the shady porch is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of Joe, a good read or a dinner with friends at the large round wooden table overlooking the ingrounad pool. The gingerbread trim on the porch brings back the nostalgic dreams of centuries past. Did I mention pool? We are talking about a 20 x 40 foot Olympic-feeling lap pool, ten feet deep, refurbished and used extensively by the current owners. There is even an in ground hot tub connected to the pool. A small greenhouse/ storage building helps to keep the outdoor items under control. The house was added on to in 1915 and again in the 70s with a kitchen and 3 bathrooms. It also has 3 bedrooms and a bonus room we call the Sun room as it looks out of many windows onto the pool. Total square footage is 2500. There is a TV room and a living room as well. The TV room was remodeled in 2021 along with one of the bedrooms. The older part of the house had already been restored. A new HVAC system was added 12 years ago as well as a new metal roof. The Kitchen was also remodeled in 2022 and opened up to the TV room. New landscaping and a sweet kitchen garden was added in 2020. There is a great chicken coop and chicken run that provide eggs for the household. Giant azaleas and 150 year old Camelias surround the house with a spectacular show when in bloom. They also provide privacy. A 50 year old massive Magnolia is a special feature of the yard. In addition, the following food plants have been added: Blackberries, Mulberries, Persimmon, kiwi vines, passion flower, Pecan, Fig, Lemon, Satsuma, Asparagus Beds and more grace the landscape. Only 2 miles from the town of Alachua in one of the hilliest parts of North Central Florida, the property location gives easy access to Gainesville and the University of Florida, the many crystal clear Springs in the area which are connected to the Santa Fe and the Suwannee River systems. Only 20 minutes from Lake City to the North, close to I-75 (no noise) provides easy access to both the South and the North Florida sites.
