The Lake Morton Historic District in Lakeland FL is just south of the downtown area. The eastern border is S Ingram Ave, the west boundary is South FL Avenue and of course the south side is Lake Hollingsworth. Dixieland another Historic District is on the west side of Florida Ave basically across the street from The Lake Morton Historic District.
Actually not to much other than quite a few homes. That doesn't matter to much because South Florida Avenue (on the western side) is where you find a lot of the restaurants, services and stores in Lakeland. After all Florida Southern College borders the district and how many areas in the United States are adjacent to such a fine college?
Most, and I do mean most of the homes here were built between 1901 and 1950. Lakeland was incorporated in 1885 and as usual the best locations are the first places homes are built. The area between Lake Morton and Lake Hollingsworth was not left untouched for very long.
So how does one go about finding the perfect home here? About 50 homes will sell in this part of town each year. The median price is usually about 1/3 higher than in Dixieland to the west and on par with Lakeland as a whole. At that price the nicer homes can sell fairly quickly if prices anywhere near correctly. That being said here are some suggestions. Be prepared to fund the purchase. Evaluate the homes which are actually in this area and decide if there are some which may be right for you. Then contact us and we can alert you as soon as a matching home becomes available. If one is available today then lets talk about viewing it. Below are homes in and near the Lake Morton Historic District in Lakeland FL.
