|320 W MINNESOTA AVENUE, DELAND FL 32720|
This three-story family compound consists of a main house with over 3,000 sq. ft including the semi-finished attic along with a 1,000 sq. ft. guest house. The two buildings, which sit on spacious grounds of almost ? acre, have been upgraded with most original features remaining intact. Built in 1909, it is on West Minnesota Avenue, three blocks from the main entrance to Stetson University. The home was built on the most exclusive street in DeLand and remains so to this day, both because of the historical authenticity and quality of the houses, and also because of its prized location. The home is located within short walking distance to what was voted the best downtown in the nation in America’s Main Street competition in 2017. DeLand was also the Great American Main Street Award winner in 1997. Downtown DeLand, all within easy walking distance, offers too many amenities to list, but highlights include: the historic Athens Theatre, Artisan Alley (where streets are closed to traffic and opened to pedestrians every Friday night), and many restaurants, shops, and museums. Parades, art shows, and events close down the main street to cars and open it to pedestrians several times a year. There are seven bedrooms, two living rooms, two offices, a laundry room, and 2-½ baths in the main house. There is also a large front porch with a porch swing. The large guest house has one bedroom, a full bath, a large living room, a laundry room, and a loft. The guest house can be rented out. There is also parking for at least six cars, a fenced yard, a half basketball court, two storage sheds, solar panels, an organic vegetable garden, a 75-gallon cistern, and a patio next to a lily pond. The owner is almost finished moving out.
