Built in 1928, this home has not been on the market in generations! The original owner, famed Sixth Judicial Circuit Judge William Whitfield, had the Mediterranean Revival home constructed for his family nearly 100 years ago by Raymond C. Stevens, who pioneered the design/build process in Central Florida and whose company still exists today as one of Florida’s oldest and most experienced construction leaders. In its history, the house has only been sold once—the original owners sold it to James Bettes, who helped start Orlando’s Planning and Zoning Board in the 1940s, and the house has been in his family for over 60 years! Now’s your chance to add yourself to the legacy of this incredible home! As you pull up the brick street in front of the estate, the mature landscaping, architectural details, and charm of the exterior will captivate you. The wrought iron ornamentation, small balconies, and a window design with hints of a Galleon ship were used because the builder was said to be a sailing enthusiast. The solid wood front door is rare pecky cypress, which is also showcased throughout the home in the exposed beams as well as other doors. The family room is a showstopper that you won’t soon forget with dark wood beams high in the cathedral ceilings, oak flooring, symmetrical archways, and a large wood-burning fireplace, all adjacent to an enchanting sun room which features a tile floor with details of random-laid brightly-colored broken tiles, typical for the era and featured discreetly in other areas of the house as well. The master bedroom suite is located past a den on the main floor and was added a few decades back. Upstairs are 2 large bedrooms surrounding a bath with nostalgic fixtures. Rare for Central Florida, the house has an unfinished walk-out basement where laundry is located, and also has a small room with a half bath. The long driveway passes through a porte cochere to a large detached carriage house garage in the rear. This house has a lot of love to give, but will also need some love from the next owner to continue its legacy into its next 100 years.
