c.1901 Fixer Upper in Fort Meade, FL
Built in 1901, this sweet Old Florida cottage is in a neighborhood of similar older wood frame vernacular houses in Fort Meade. Number 205 1st St. NW is a contributing structure in the Fort Meade Historic District, which is comprised of 219 buildings. The residential examples, like our featured home, are mainly modest residences that individually have little distinction, but, taken as a whole show the fabric of the community.
The exterior of #205 is not bad, but the interior needs a lot of work. On the plus side are low taxes, low crime neighborhood, not in a flood zone. The home has natural gas heating and window unit air conditioning, so installing central air might be one of the projects a new buyer should consider.
This charming fixer upper Florida home features a large front porch, high ceilings and wood floors throughout (under tile). The spacious backyard includes a metal storage shed. The home is located within walking distance of downtown Fort Meade and local restaurants.
