Updated and charming Historic triplex in NE Gainesville's Doig and Robertson, adjacent to the Duck Pond. A unique opportunity to own a piece of Gainesville’s history. This property sits on 1/3rd of an acre, and includes a total of 3 Units between two separate dwelling structures, with ample land and the requisite zoning to build an additional structure.
The 2,500 square foot, two-story Main House consists of separate units on each floor, with 8 ft ceilings throughout both units and original windows throughout much of the home. The first floor unit is a large 2 bed, 1.5 bath including an open great room, recently renovated kitchen with plantation shutters, laundry room, and large deck leading to a private entrance. The second floor unit is a 2 bed, 1 bath unit which includes a galley kitchen and a spacious, completely finished attic (HVAC, Lighting, ample electric outlets, and ceiling fan) which can serve as both a living room and storage area. Constructed entirely from Heart Pine, transported from South Georgia by a team of horses, this property has preserved its historical character while continually being maintained and updated. Central HVAC (1st Floor Air Handler is new from 2021) updated plumbing throughout the entire home, exterior repainted in 2021.
Set within the lush, spacious backyard garden, consists a charming 350 square foot, heated and cooled studio cottage boasting a covered front wooden porch, kitchen area, half bathroom and outdoor shower area. Well-maintained, with updated plumbing and a brand new hot water heater, this large studio cottage contains excellent storage in the form of a loft built into the high pitch of the ceiling, as well as an an attached screened-in lean-to-shed which can serve as artist studio/workshop directly adjacent to the cottage. Through the back doors of the cottage, sits a wooden deck covered underneath a Himalayan Curved Roof, leading to a private backyard patio and garden filled with whimsy. With just as much character as the main house, this cottage was originally constructed in 1940 on the site of the present-day Gainesville Plaza on Thirteenth Street and transported down University Avenue on steel rollers and relocated to the property in 1970.
Walk to downtown Gainesville and just 1.5 miles to the University of Florida. Ample Parking in the Front of the Home. Zoned RMF-7. No HOA. Not in the Historic District.
