Vintage home in historic Melrose, Florida! Original brick sidewalk leading up to a Craftsman-style home built in 1926 at the corner of Quail and Park Streets. Classic high ceilings, original (gorgeous) wooden floors throughout, a working brick fireplace, classic chandeliers and french doors with glass knobs are just a few of the special features in this home. A remodeled kitchen and screened porch additions with pine floors were added mid-1990’s. The current configuration of a 2/1 could very easily become a 3/2, considering the two carpeted bonus rooms. Other features include a metal roof, large outbuilding/garage, original double-hung windows with rippled glass, built-in cabinets in the dining room, a large fenced in yard (great for children/pets), the corner lot has paved roads on each side, a fabulous claw-foot tub on the bathroom, and an abundance of charm.
