This beautiful building has great potential for law firms, architects, engineers, and other professionals. The Spring Arts House, an Arts and Crafts-style bungalow, was built in 1913. The Spring Arts House was rehabilitated in part with a grant from the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Historical Resources, and with in-kind donations from many local contributors. Renovations took 4 years to complete, in some cases with use of decades-old heart of pine and rare tiling. The house features Ludowici clay roof tiles, in the home's original French style, that were purchased from a company in Ohio. The fireplace downstairs was stripped of many layers of paint where underneath workers found a red mahogany mantel with mini-columns and detailed carvings. Chico Villamore restored both fireplaces with period tile. The home's original glass and brass doorknobs are nearly all accounted for, but there had been many other alterations of the house over the years. Aside porch had been replaced with a sliding glass door. The sliding glass doors and windows on the south side of the building were replaced with an ADA compliant ramp using materials in the same 1913 Arts & Crafts style. The original windows were restored, and the upstairs back porch was restored to its original look. The side entrance was tiled in a manner like the nearby Thomas Center. Zoning is U4 and future land use is mixed use office residential. This location is convenient to downtown municipal buildings and the court houses.
