If you're anything like us, you've fully given up on the American Dream within Orlando city limits. Faced with a choice between ugly, expensive sprawl and close-in, small historic homes with eye-popping price tags, the only option is not to play.
The situation gets a little more tenable if you head for the outlying counties, but why would you want to spend $300,000 to live on a cul-de-sac within earshot of I-4? If you're going to move out of town, why not move out of town?
This historic Sanford farmhouse is a perfect example of what you can get if you're willing to to head to the outer reaches of the 407. The 4-bedroom, three-bath located a brisk walk or nice bike ride away from downtown Sanford. The home built in 1927 features a ton of Old Florida touches while nodding toward the present with a screened-in pool out back. In addition, the home comes with its own small apartment, a 1 bedroom out back on top of a garage.
The home at 2450 Mellonville Ave. is presented by Michelle Sims and Karen Wilkins with The Wilkins Way LLC. The sellers are asking for $400K.
