1701 E Washington St, Orlando

This 1925 masterpiece, built by Louis Dolive, is reminiscent of old Florida prominence. This historic location was originally named “RoseArden”, which was named after the land developer Walter Rose who added “Arden” to his name meaning “a place of solitude and great beauty”. This Lawsona/Fern Creek house is adjacent to Dickson Azalea Park and the brick lined Washington St Bridge, the only bridge of its kind left in Central Florida, within the Lawsona Historic District. The owners took meticulous care in trying to maintain the original integrity of this home, which features refinished hardwood floors throughout, elegant crown molding and baseboards with double hung sash windows all serviced and functioning. The stunning curb appeal along with the original architectural design with weatherboard exterior and flared foundation skirts is the very reason this home was 1 of 10 homes chosen to represent the Historic Homes Lake Lawsona/Fern Creek Garden Tour! The only available opportunity to own a home overlooking Dickson Azalea Park from the multi-tiered custom brick patios along with a very large fenced back yard should provide the original intention of the developer, which was solitude and great beauty. There are so many vintage windows throughout this home allowing tons of welcomed natural light. A newly renovated kitchen has upgraded the look and functionality of the home while maintaining its historic class and detail. The master retreat features a cozy fireplace, a built in window bench with storage, and a large walk-in closet. The remaining 3 bedrooms are generously sized, each with distinct architectural details. Enjoy a soak in the clawfoot tub while overlooking the neighborhood in one of the bathrooms off of the second floor hallway. A detached living space offers an opportunity for a separate office, gym or flex space. You must visit this home to experience the exceptional panoramic views of Dickson Azalea Park to appreciate owning a piece of Orlando’s history.
