A Charming Southern 19th Century Estate

Full of character and charm, the Columbus W. Deen home showcases the gorgeous characteristics of  19th century Southern architecture. This classic and historic residence was previously featured in numerous publications, including the front cover of American Bungalow Magazine. The home is located at 471 Frank Lloyd Wright Way in Lakeland, Florida and is listed for $899,999 by sales associate Victoria Vo.

The stately residence, built circa 1912, sits at the epicenter of the Lake Morton Historic District on the southwest corner of Success Avenue and McDonald Street, and is meticulously restored to its original appearance.

Known locally as “The Deen House,” the Prairie-style home began its life as a mansion for banker and real estate developer Columbus W. Deen. The pristine bungalow has since undergone extensive updates and renovations, seamlessly blending characteristics of 19th century Southern architecture with modern features and amenities. The home’s original woodwork, pocket doors, coffered ceilings and large semi-circular brick fireplaces remain.

An open concept floor plan, formal dining room, custom kitchen with granite countertops and center island, as well as a luxurious 1800-square-foot wraparound porch make the home ideal for entertaining. The main house includes five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. In addition, there is a detached guesthouse containing two bedrooms and two full baths.
