Property Description

Are you looking for some hard-to-find lakefront property in Winter Haven? Then look no further. Welcome to 1406 Drexel Ave NE. This home is approximately 1/3 of an acre and consists of 2 lots, one of which includes about 70 ft of lakefront that is large enough for you to build a boat dock on that is just down the street from the home. There are lake views from many rooms in the home as well. The home itself is just under 2000 sq ft and is well-maintained but with some mid-century charm. As you pull up to the home, you will notice towering oak trees and a nicely landscaped yard. As you enter the home through the front door, you will enter into a formal living room with plenty of room for sitting around and talking with your friends and family. Through the living room is a large kitchen with painted cabinets and a beautiful black backsplash. Tile floors and counter space are highlights of your kitchen. If you entered through the carport, then you entered through a small mud room and into the kitchen. Straight ahead through the kitchen is the very large family room and dining room combination. With lots of room to entertain this serves as the hub of the home. To the left is the master bedroom which features a large seating area. If you wanted to close up the rest of the house at night you could retire at the end of a long day to your sitting area within your master bedroom. There is another bedroom on the other side of the family room as well that is separate from the other bedrooms. Through the master, is a hallway that features your 2 bathrooms and 2 other bedrooms, and a laundry room. All rooms are good sizes. The bathrooms are original to the home so could use some updating. The bedrooms are all a decent size and at least one has been used as an office so is currently decorated as such. On the other side of your large family room is a very large rear porch that spans the length of the home. It features beautiful tiles and is even wired for a hot tub. The backyard is spacious and nicely landscaped and fenced in for any fur babies you want to bring with you to your new home. There is one more surprise this home has in store for you. It has a seldom-seen basement! That's right, an actual basement in Florida that is not underwater. The current owners use the basement for a podcast studio and as a hurricane shelter. They stayed in the room for recent hurricanes and reported no water or damage issues. Did we mention there is no HOA? The refrigerator, roof (2 years old) and hot water heater (newly installed) are all newer and have been replaced in recent years. The home also has an irrigation well on the property for keeping your lawn looking great. This home is located within a community of many mid-century modern Gene Leedy homes. Don't let this piece of historic Winter Haven get away. Schedule your showing today.
