115 E Palmetto Ave, Howey In The Hills

Step into the Charles Emery House and go back in time to 1925 when things were made to last. It was custom built in typical Florida style to accommodate family furniture and to make use of natural sunlight & cool lake breezes through 44 double-hung windows and 2 sets of French doors. The home features 10' ceilings, crown moldings, a wrap-around porch, original oak floors, plaster walls & unique 2" thick cork insulation to keep the house warm/cool. As you enter through either set of original french doors from the porch you'll find the large living room with a fireplace at one end. A dining room is through another set of french doors, the kitchen is on the other side of it through swing doors. The front bedroom (off the living room) has another door at the back leading to the main bathroom. From the bathroom, there is a hall leading to the kitchen and another hall leading to the back bedroom and master bedroom with attached sun room (a set of french doors is in between) another door leads to the back bathroom. The back bedroom also has a bathroom door. On the 2nd floor is a Family Room, theater, a cedar closet & storage areas. The full basement is under the entire house. The detached garage has a bonus room, a bathroom and an enclosed porch. We've added modern appliances, central air conditioning, electric service and a 9+kW SunPower solar power generating system, brick paver driveway, walkways and a gathering area in the backyard. Ceiling fans & screened windows were added to the wrap-around front porch.
