1330 E Washington Street, Monticello, Florida, 32344
This attractive two-story 2733 sq. ft home with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths is located in charming Monticello, about 30 minutes east of Tallahassee. The historic old home, thought to have been built in 1921, sits in a good neighborhood on a 0.55 acre lot that has been freshly landscaped and includes 3 out buildings—an original 2-car garage that has been converted to an air-conditioned workshop/project room, the original old smokehouse, and a more recently added storage shed. The house has new siding and all new windows. The interior has fresh finishes throughout including new paint and just-refinished wood floors. A former owner did an extensive upgrade and remodeling of the kitchen several years ago. The 3 bathrooms are modest but very functional with many new fixtures and fresh paint. The two fireplaces have gas logs. There’s a wet bar with a wine cooler. Hot water is from an on-demand gas water heater. One of the two AC units is new. There’s even an old attic fan that works great for pulling in fresh air on a pleasant day. The carport has an RV/EV plug-in. An in-ground backyard pool has been decked over. The pool needs a new liner but is probably restorable. Monticello is one of North Florida’s most pleasant communities with a friendly rural culture. Downtown Monticello is also undergoing a renaissance with lots of remodeling of old buildings and quaint new shops. Jefferson is the only county in Florida with no traffic lights, yet it is very convenient to urban area services in Tallahassee and Thomasville, GA.
