Experience the charm and rich history of Old Florida with this historic cracker style home known as the Lillian Hart House. Built in 1926, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home has been updated with modern conveniences while preserving its natural historic beauty. It is situated on 7 acres behind a gated entrance with a beautiful canopy of mature live oaks and palm trees.
The sheen of the original wood floors can be seen throughout the home. As you enter through the front door you cannot miss the gorgeous 100+ year-old cypress countertops from the Apalachicola River. They are complemented by white cabinetry, energy-efficient appliances, and a butcher block to provide a little farmhouse charm.

Facing the kitchen is a library with floor to ceiling shelving, a cozy sitting space, and a stylish lofted ceiling. Beautiful wood stairs lead from the library to a recently renovated all wood loft-style 3rd bedroom. It can be used as office space, craft or playroom with its own climate control.
The living room has a fireplace where you can curl up on those colder days or entertain guests. The master bedroom has lots of light flowing in with ample closet space & modern built-in shelving. The second bedroom is just across the hall with ample closet space and a ceiling fan.
Down the hall, you will find two bathrooms that share a great view of the back acreage. The first bathroom features an original and rehabbed clawfoot tub with classic faucet and handles; the second bath offers a shower and additional overhead storage in a large one-of-a-kind stained glass cabinet.
The home was relocated in 1987 from Depot Ave, near the Old Gainesville Depot, to Micanopy FL, “the little town that time forgot”. The spacious porch offers 360-degree views of lush old Florida scenery. It is surrounded by a deck on three sides, making the home accessible from both carports and from the backyard toward the large shed. With over 1250 sqft of outdoor living space, you can lounge with friends and family to take in the views of Sandhill cranes and deer while listening to the sounds of birds and other wildlife.
If you desire a farm lifestyle, there is an animal pen and fully enclosed chicken coop. There is a small pasture towards the back of the property where you can keep horses or plant a garden. Enjoy fruit from the existing citrus, banana or pear trees and enjoy their sweet smells when in bloom.
The workshop has electric and can be used as a garage to park a classic car with room to work or for boat parking. An additional room around the left side of the shed offers plenty of storage for your mower and kayaks.
Just a few minutes of drive time is all it takes to put your kayak in Orange Lake or Lake Wauburg or slip in one of the many creeks and explore the beauty of Micanopy. This is an incredible place to live, quiet and serene but also close to all Micanopy has to offer: fabulous local coffee and bakery Mosswood Farm Store, public library, historic museum, antiquing, an A+ elementary school, Paynes Prairie and much more!
It is only minutes from downtown Historic Micanopy and 20 minutes from Gainesville and the University of Florida.
