Property Details

Looking for a few acres to call home? Check out this brick fixer-upper with about +/- 3.75 acres, close enough to town with all the country charm. This home sits on two pretty lots (property lines being re-drawn prior to sale) with majestic oaks, some more than a century old! Enjoy the simple pleasures of picking fresh blueberries while listening to the birds sing in your large back yard. There's plenty of space to park under your 1200 sq ft carport and lots of space for your boat trailer, etc. The home has 3 original bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. The addition of a 4th bedroom plus sitting area and large walk-in closet (with a separate entrance from the back of the home) offers loads of potential. This space was plumbed for a home hair salon--water lines in tact/not connected While this home has some great features, it will need some updates and repairs--This home is being sold in "As-is" condition and may not qualify for some financing. The home has updated windows and a metal roof. There is an extra living area with French Doors for additional privacy--could be used as an office or den. The fireplace is flanked by unique stained-glass windows (the window on the left is covered on the exterior by vinyl siding). The kitchen has beautiful wood cabinets and a large bar with solid surface counter tops. Major appliances (refrigerator & range) are not included. Please note that the tile in the kitchen is loose/broken and the flooring in the shared bathroom is also in very poor condition. The hall bathroom has an easy-access stand-up shower unit. The master bedroom offers a half bath and two closets. (There is space in the half-bathroom for the new owner to add a shower in the bathroom-closet area to create a full master bathroom)
Enjoy morning coffee in your large Florida room, just off the kitchen accessible by a sliding door, with amazing views of the property. Entertain in your huge backyard, or under your large carport/covered patio.
There is a storage shed/outbuilding with a covered area previously used to house chickens. This shed has some wood rot, please use caution in/around this building. The home will convey with about +/- 3.75 acres, with some wooded areas. There are grape vines, blueberry bushes, walnut trees, and lots of flowering plants. You'll have plenty of space to grow a vegetable or flower garden. Look at the property appraiser's website for the adjacent parcel to the east, of which most will be included--new property lines will be drawn/listing will be updated.
If you're looking for a place to put your personal touches (new paint and flooring will transform the space) with a few acres of privacy to enjoy, don't delay. This home is conveniently located in Northeast Crestview, in the Poverty Creek/Dorcas community, with easy access to military bases (Duke Field is approximately 18 miles; Eglin AFB about 30 miles), schools (just under 6 miles to Crestview HS and nearby shopping) and only about 35 miles to the white, sandy beaches of Okaloosa Island... welcome home to your coastal country retreat!
