Built in 1925; over 4000 sq. ft. under roof. Incredible bones are obvious for the original 1925 base structure but the new kitchen added on back in the 1960's is crumbling and has rotted away from the main structure. The doors are mahogany. The floors are riff pine. The trim and highlights are impressive but non-imposing. Fireplaces, high ceilings, big windows, spacious box style rooms, sun porch with two walls of glass and a great welcoming feeling. The house has not been lived in for more than 10 years and shows deferred maintenance and lack of love. It is a diamond in the rough and can be turned into offices, studio, art gallery, antique mall, boarding house, bed and breakfast or any vision you see that is needed. There is also a detached apartment that has been treated poorly by the last tenant but can be revived with some effort. Madison, Florida is located between Tallahassee, FL and Jacksonville, FL just 5 miles north of Interstate 10. This home is located on the corner of Base (US 90), Parramore and Marion Street. It has frontage on all three streets. It has city water and sewer and the back lot can be sold or built on if desired. No appointment needed. Being sold "AS IS". Buyer may have inspections if desired.
