Edgewood Drive wasn’t always the bustling residential throughway that it is today. Before it was home to eateries, green spaces, and hundreds of homes, the drive sat mostly bare until developers broke ground on one home in 1925. Today, Edgewood Drive’s earliest home is up for sale.

751 E. Edgewood Dr. | $585,000

3 bed | 2 bath | 2,529 sqft
Listing agent: Christine Ehlenbeck, Keller Williams Realty

This historic home is going to go fast, and once it’s gone, it probably won’t hit the market again for a while. Since 1925, it’s only changed hands twice, and we can see why.

Despite being nearly a century old, this home has an updated kitchen with tons of counter space and, dare we say, Lakeland’s most charming breakfast nook. We love to see modern luxuries like those, but we’re equally obsessed with the home’s historic charm — peep those exposed beams and the fireplace in the primary bedroom.
