A historic Mediterranean mansion designed by one of Seminole County's most prominent architects is now on the market for the first time in several decades in Central Florida.
Located at 2004 Magnolia Ave. in Sanford, the 4,027-square-foot home was originally designed by Elton Moughton, a post-Depression era architect whose work largely shaped Sanford.
The home was built in 1925 and features seven bedrooms and three baths, sitting on more than half an acre across three city lots. It's characterized by stunning Mediterranean-style architecture and plenty of colorful rooms and natural light, resulting in a home decked out in Florida charm.
For most of his career, which began in 1917 and ran throughout the Great Depression and post-World War II years, Elton Moughton was Seminole County's only architect . He designed and built a number of homes and schools, a resort hotel, civic and public buildings, as well as commercial structures ranging from warehouses to automobile dealerships.
The estate is listed for $599,000 and is being handled by Tammy Agnini of Century 21 Integra.
