About the Property
5 Bed/ 4 Bath Home Sleeps 14
Our property, Ardendales, is a beautifully renovated home with the charm of the early 1900's and all the modern conveniences. Situated in historic downtown Brooksville within walking distance of restaurants, tennis courts, shopping and city park, our beautiful one acre property is on a quiet residential brick street. With five bedrooms and four baths and 3800 sf it sleeps 14 comfortably. It has a parlor, library, very large living room with built-in window daybeds, dining room that seats 18, a butler's pantry, a large kitchen, and an extra suite with a separate entrance with microwave and mini-fridge downstairs. Out back is a 6 burner grill on a large terraced deck next to a comfortably furnished screened room. We've added 1/4 mi of walking paths for a quiet walk through the wooded peaceful 1/2 acre behind the house - a great place to do some bird watching or just relax in the screened room tucked away in the middle of the woods. Equipped with all the conveniences of home you can make this your base while taking day trips to enjoy the surrounding Nature Coast sights, the theme parks in central FL, local beaches, Tampa/St Petersburg's entertainment and dining, etc. Great for family reunions or vacations, out-of-town wedding guests, vacation rental, festival weekends.
