Rare opportunity to purchase a large home in NW Gainesville’s desirable Ridgewood neighborhood. Built in 1972, this one-owner, late mid-century home retains its original 70's charm. It was custom-designed by Courtney Stewart, a prominent Ft. Lauderdale architect and member of the first class at the University of Florida’s School of Architecture. The tri-level 4,000 square foot home has five bedrooms and four bathrooms. The Brady Bunch would feel right at home! Many period details including cracked tile floor, beamed ceilings, generous eaves and vintage fixtures. From the covered front porch, you enter the foyer which opens to a large center hall. To the right is the formal Living Room with large bay window. A vintage mural divides the Living Room from the Dining Room. The large Dining Room has built-in display cabinets. Off the dining area is the extensive kitchen with vintage cabinets, skylights, breakfast nook and pantry. To to the right is the inside laundry room with washer and dryer and a wall of cabinets. From the kitchen is the large Florida Room with cracked tile floors, more storage and skylights. Back to the center hall is the first floor guest bedroom and guest bathroom. This very large room has lots of natural light, overlooks the rear yard and has two closets. To the left is the sunken Family Room with steps down to a very large open space with fireplace, built-in benches, storage closet and book shelves.
