417 Mansion

4-star vacation home with kitchen and balcony
Where do we start? Fantastic one of a kind historic home.Filled with architectural character and charm of 1912, named The Deen House. This home was previously featured on numerous publications, including the cover of American Bungalow Magazine. The home was designed by Guy Platt Johnson, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, for banker Columbus W. Deen (also known for being the great-great uncle of Paula Deen) in c.1912 and according to The Ledger, legend has it that both Frank Lloyd Wright and Helen Keller stayed in the house during visits to Florida Southern College.In 2012, the current owners added to the home restoration to restore the characteristics of nineteenth-century prairie style architecture while utilizing modern updates in the main house kitchen and upstairs full baths.. The luxurious wraparound covered porch is approximately 1, 800 square. Other characteristics include many details such as stained glass windows, original pocket doors, coffered ceilings and six fireplaces, fantastic woodwork.Bedroom #1. (Master) Suite: King bedBedroom #2. Queen Bedroom #3. Full + Twin bunkBedroom #4. FullBedroom #5. (Downstairs) QueenThe enchanting Deen House is steeped in local history and folklore. Our goal has been to update the home with all of the modern conveniences, whilst still retaining the integrity of its original design and character. Built by its first owner, Columbus W. Deen, his family lived here until his death. Today the home is one of the finest examples of the "prairie style" of architecture extant in the city. The style is usually marked by horizontal lines, flat or hipped roofs with broad overhanging eaves, windows grouped in horizontal bands, integration with the landscape, solid construction, craftsmanship, and discipline in the use of ornament. Horizontal lines were thought to evoke and relate to the native prairie landscape. The designation “Prairie” is due to the dominant horizontal of the majority of Prairie style buildings which echoes the wide, flat, tree-less expanses of the mid-Western United States. The most famous proponent of the style, Frank Lloyd Wright, promoted an idea of "organic architecture", the primary tenet of which was that a structure should look as if it naturally grew from the site. Wright also felt that a horizontal orientation was a distinctly American design motif, in that the younger country had much more open, undeveloped land than found in most older, urbanized European nations. Frank Lloyd Wright is believed to have stayed in the home during his many visits to Florida Southern College. The Deen House is located in the heart of the Lake Morton Historic District at the corner of Success Avenue and McDonald Street. The home features bold crown moldings, restored oak paneling and wood-stained beams across coffered 11 ½ foot ceilings. Staircase is over 4 foot wide and 22 ½ foot deep in a spacious open atrium that showcases the commissioned stained-glass masterwork of the “Tree of Life” by Lakeland artist, Ken Berman. The home has 6 FIREPLACES and a powerful use of the arch as a brilliant counterstatement to the angular hallmarks of the early 20th century prairie motif. Restorations, remodeling, upgrades to the home have taken place for most of the last two decades, the home has undergone enormous restoration and repair.
