635 Delaney Ave – Beautifully Updated Historic Home

Step into classic Florida elegance in this grand Colonial Cottage Revival estate home in the heart of Orlando. The E.F. Akers house marries 101 years of Central Florida architectural charm with beautifully updated and maintained features including original heart pine wood floors, original 14” crown moulding, plaster walls, high ceilings, elegant front and back staircases, and over 2,000 square feet of wrap around porches. An electronic gate secures the meticulous gardens that welcome you home. The spacious wrap around porch evokes summer days of sipping lemonade and enjoying the breezes off nearby Lake Lucerne. Brand new ceiling fans and paint make the porch perfect for year-round entertainment. Through the front door you’ll be welcomed by the grand formal living room with wood burning fireplace and an elegant private study. The formal dining room opens to the renovated kitchen (stainless steel appliances, quartz counters and handmade pewter lighting) and family room. There is a first floor bedroom and an adjoining full bath with walk-in shower and marble tile; perfect for guests or an in-law suite. Also downstairs is a large media room with elegant half bath. Upstairs, the sprawling master suite provides a spa-like oasis with dreamy lighting, private alcoves, and a relaxing Jacuzzi soaking tub. Plenty of room for guests with two additional bedrooms on the other side of the second floor. This sought after Blanker/Boone school district home is centered in the Lake Cherokee Historic District and is just a short walk to the Dr. Philips Performance Art Center, Amway Center, and Downtown Orlando.
