Single Family Residence
This Mid-Century house is special, you will feel it upon entering. Originally a custom-built home in 1962 for an attorney who had an office on downtown Sanford’s 1st Street, it has unique and stunning characteristics that are not found in modern homes. Notice the marble compass rose medallion set into the tile floor while you are in the Foyer. Look ahead and you will see the expansive sunken Living Room with the floor to ceiling slate wood-burning fireplace and 12’ insulated sliding doors offering a fantastic view of the screened Lanai and beautiful backyard. The Living Room is open to the Dining Room that features the original wood floor, chair rail, a wrought iron railing and a new 6’ insulated sliding doors to the lanai. The Kitchen has the original hardwood cabinets and vented hood, Breakfast Bar, updated stainless-steel appliances, disposal and electric cook-top. Adjoining is the large Breakfast/Morning Room with a vintage intercom system. Next to the Kitchen, there’s a custom made, large walk-in Pantry and Laundry Room with cabinets and a folding counter. Crown Molding is throughout the house which was solidly built with plaster walls and ceilings. Down the wide hallway with a kitschy telephone niche, access to an attic with partial wood flooring and large linen closet, you’ll find the 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The Primary Suite boasts TWO walk-in closets and an en-suite bathroom. Relax or entertain on the newly remodeled 28’ screened Lanai, with 6” foam insulated roof, 3 ceiling fans and wood-grain porcelain tile floors. The oversized Garage is something special too! Details include an epoxy floor, attic stairs to the attic with partial wood floors, service doors at the front and rear, a tongue and groove ceiling with crown molding and a surprise utility/workshop/hobby room with mini-split A/C and heat and sink or washer/dryer hook-ups. The exterior includes a motor court design circular drive, Front Porch with slate floor and wood ceiling, almost a 1/2 acre featuring mature landscaping and several concrete patios for entertaining. The large rear yard with alley access is semi-enclosed by an ivy-covered block wall, and includes a fountain, Shed with electricity and stately live oak, and it faces east so it's not hot in the afternoon sun. There’s no HOA, so bring your boat or RV and park it on the north side pad with 50 amp electric outlet. Other features include a new shingle roof in 2018, new ductwork and HVAC with 2 stage Heat Pump in 2018, exterior video cameras and security system. Located in the golf cart zone, this house is only four blocks to Lake Monroe and Sanford’s Riverwalk, and less than a mile to the thriving historic downtown. Sanford is the largest city in Seminole County, but you will feel like you’re living in a small town. Schedule your showing now, 421 Elliott is amazing!
