BACK ON MARKET! Wake up to your own piece of history every morning! This beautiful, historic home, built in 1900, is located in the heart of Bartow. Starting with the covered front porch, you enter the large formal living room which opens to an expansive (22x15) separate dining room. Originally constructed with 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor, there are many rooms downstairs that could easily be used as additional bedrooms and/or entertainment areas --making this a perfect home for a large or multi generational family. The first floor has an enclosed sun porch (24x10) with an adjoining 9x5 closet that would make a fantastic master bedroom suite. Another enclosed porch (25x9), could also be used as a bedroom, home office or studio. A 15x09 bonus room also adjoins that sun-porch, so the possibilities are endless. The updated kitchen features new tile flooring, granite tile counter tops, wood cabinets, a built in convection oven and cook top range. The upstairs master bedroom (15x14) has an adjoining room (9x8) that would be perfect for use as a walk-in closet or dressing area. Another 16x10 sun porch adjoins the master bedroom. The homeowners spent thousands of dollars in upgrades including new wiring, a new roof in 2008, new plumbing and two new air conditioning units. The home has so much potential and will be a great opportunity for someone who loves history and is willing to complete the project to restore the home to it's true potential.
