314 Cherokee Ave, Orange City, FL 32763
$76,000 ~ Pending ~ Foreclosure
This old house definitely needs saving and is our showcased home for today during National Preservation Month. The home is a foreclosure in the historic district of Orange City, Florida, a district of 217 contributing structures dating back to 1876. Can you believe that orange City’s founders purchased 5000 acres of land in 1875 for only $1.25 an acre?
Today property values in Florida have risen substantially. It is difficult to find an old cheap house, even a fixer upper, with any kind of of historical value. But here is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath fixer upper that originally served as a church. The wood walls and ceilings, wainscoting, stained glass and old pews are a few of the home’s standout features. Of course, the best part is the fact that the house is only a 35-minute drive, 34 to be exact, to ocean beaches.
