Fantastic Mid-Century Modern Home

Fantastic Architect designed Mid-Century Modern Creekside home for sale in NW Gainesville’s Florida Park neighborhood. This one-of-a-kind masterpiece was designed by Architect J. Don Alford and received an AIA Merit Award in 1962. Nestled amongst the trees on .61 acres, this home has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a study and a bonus room. The post and beam construction allows for expansive views and an open floor plan. As you walk up the drive, you will immediately notice how the home was perfectly adapted to the site.
