Built in 1907, this Historic District home is architecturally significant because it is one of just a few Dutch Colonial Revival style homes in Sanford. It is said that the newel post was hand carved as a gift for the original owner (a local insurance agent named A.P. Connelly) and that the light fixture came from the Belleview-Biltmore Hotel, a historic resort hotel in Bellair, FL. This home was gutted in the late 1990s, and the wiring was completely updated, as was the plumbing -- no cast iron anywhere, no knob and tube. The second floor is insulated also. The lot, 64 feet wide, allows for a generous side yard on both sides of the house. The roof is from 2019, the upstairs a/c is 2 years old, and the home has blown in attic insulation. You'll love the openness and large rooms; downstairs has a dining room, den, kitchen, half bath and office (or bedroom, but no closet) and en suite full bathroom. Upstairs, all three bedrooms are generously proportioned, and the hallway is spacious. The kitchen has a gas stove, and the tankless water heater is gas also. The gas Franklin stove in the great room heats the whole house. Although it is over 110 years old, the home has maintained many of its original leaded glass windows and original floors. It is located just blocks from the downtown restaurants, antique stores, the library, bars and cafes. Don't miss the virtual tour. A list of all inhabitants of the home from 1907 onward is also available, thanks to the Sanford Museum.
