Once owned by television news anchor Forrest Sawyer, this majestic home sits on nearly five acres in North Lakeland. Close to shopping and entertainment and only minutes from I-4, it gives you quick access to Orlando or Tampa. With five shaded acres and beautiful Oak trees you’ll have plenty of room for outdoor activities. The 2400 sq. ft. shop was once used by a previous owner to build small planes but would be perfect for storing all your toys as well. Built in 1940, this home features real wood throughout and you can tell it was built during a time when homes were built to last. Rooms are large and with the double master bedrooms your guests will have plenty of room to relax. The kitchen has plenty of counter space and can accommodate even the pickiest cook. The living room is large enough for any family gathering but still can be a cozy space on those rare Florida winter nights when sitting in front of the fireplace is the perfect spot to be. This home hearkens back to a time when craftsmanship and quality were king. Solid wood and old style architecture make this home a great find for anyone looking for a rustic home with plenty of character.
