-- THE PROPERTY --
Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Twin- over- Full Bunk Bed | Bedroom 3: Twin Bed w/ Twin Trundle Bed
Built in 1936, this classic 'Old Florida' home is nestled off the road and under the shade of beautiful magnolias in the Duckpond neighborhood. You'll have 1,000 square feet of space for the kids and dozens of updated amenities so everyone can feel right at home.
Give the kids a break by turning on a Disney classic on the flat-screen TV. With natural light flooding from the windows, you can still enjoy the sunshine in the comfort of the living room. Busy bees can catch up on work emails at the office desk, while the cooks can head to the kitchen to begin meal prepping for the night.
This home features a fully equipped kitchen with ample counter space, so whipping up dinners will be a breeze. Take advantage of the rightfully-named 'Sunshine State' and utilize the charcoal grill outside. When the meal is ready, gather around the large dining table with the family for a cozy night inside.
When the sun sets over Duckpond, send the kids off to bed in the playful second bedroom, where they can choose between the full-sized bottom bunk or twin-sized top bunk. Parents can retreat to the master bedroom for a restful and uninterrupted night on the king bed.
-- THE LOCATION --
Gator fans will be thrilled to vacation in a property less than 15 minutes from the University of Florida! Tour the beautiful campus, buy some gator gear, and catch a football game at 'The Swamp' Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
The house is also just a 10-minute walk from the heart of Gainesville. You can spend the day wandering the historic Main Street and checking out the many shops and boutiques that fill downtown. Stop at The Top for a made-from-scratch meal on the charming patio that looks out onto Main Street.
Let the kids loose in the Depot Park for a day of fun! This park, just a 5-minute drive away, was once an old rail yard and has been completely reconstructed into a space filled with gardens, wildflowers, and playgrounds galore!
