Your once-in-a-lifetime heirloom purchase is here. The Edgar L. Ferran House, Circa 1909, is a historic downtown landmark that has been meticulously modernized, renovated and recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is now being offered at a truly remarkable price. Formerly owned by E. L. Ferran, the namesake of Ferran Park and owned by generations of the Ferran family, this home is now better than new and truly a treasure of downtown Eustis and Central Florida. One of the home's most unique features is the handmade rusticated concrete block structure of which this home was built. It shows great care and attention to detail ever since the beginning. Ray Ferran, the owner's son, made molds, poured and sculpted every one of the blocks on site. This gracious residence is a grand story about precision and passion and a home of extraordinary symmetry and craftsmanship. Its fairytale looks have a distinctive historical charm and are enhanced by revealing the signature white columns, wraparound porch, hanging ferns and fabled widow's watch. Get out the sweet tea, because this welcoming wraparound porch is perfect for old-fashioned visits with friends, family and neighbors. Like mom said, "Remember to eat the watermelon outside and put the rinds in the garbage can." Its atmosphere reflects the warm hospitality of the Old South, making this residence a favorite of admiring locals and architectural craftsmen alike. This stately and well-manicured manor is situated on an attractive .60-acre corner lot with a long private driveway, newer walkways, detached workshop and carport. Serene beauty and old-world charm are evident throughout this residence including the best of modern conveniences like the 3-prong updated electric, on-demand water heater and all the elegant historical details including spruce, oak and pine wood floors, smooth sliding wooden pocket doors, original lead glass windows, newer Andersen glass windows, original and rewired crystal chandeliers, large baseboards, period crown moldings and decorative millwork. The bright and cheery light-filled kitchen has been classically restored with "The Big Chill" Buttercup yellow newer appliances that include a 4-burner natural gas range, newer granite countertops and butler's pantry bringing the home into the present without losing any of its abundant historical charm. Double staircases ascend to the second level featuring two bedrooms, sunroom and the master suite with newer bath and a bedroom-sized closet with center island. This remarkable home also has a 20x30 basement, a stand-up 1,600 square foot attic and a hallmark widow's watch. Wander around the quaint and charming streets of downtown Eustis and explore the exciting boutique shops, delicious sidewalk cafes and lakeside restaurants. Picturesque Ferran Park is a short distance away where you will often find live entertainment, buskers, seasonal festivals and gorgeous vistas overlooking Lake Eustis on the Chain of Lakes.
