Single Family Residence
The Toni Everett Company
Built on .44 acres (2buildable lots) this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom 1941 Florida cottage exudes charm and character and has been artfully restored and renovated with add-ons over the years and is meticulously maintained. A flagstone pathway leads to the picture perfect covered front porch with charcoal grey decking and white railings. Watch the neighbors go by and enjoy the sight of the beautiful plantings elegantly arranged in the front yard and on either side of the porch including the stunning Bougainvillea. Through a wood framed leaded glass front door, enter the foyer and into the living room. The living room includes crown molding, a cream-colored brick fireplace topped by a gleaming white wood mantle and surround, a slate hearth, and recessed built-in shelving. The living room opens into the family room. The main bedroom is to the left of the family room. To the right is the dining area. This comfortable family room has glass sliding doors to the trellised deck. The kitchen and dining area incorporate perpendicular banks of multiple Anderson windows. The kitchen sports handsome and plentiful floor to ceiling hickory cabinetry, stone counters, and stainless-steel appliances. The dining area includes a custom-made table that rolls into the cushioned seating booth (easily seats 6 people). At the far end of the kitchen 3 steps lead down to the utility room that sports storage cabinetry. The home’s side entrance is in the utility room, with a path to/from the trellis covered parking pad. Just beyond the utility room, a delightful hideaway includes a hickory bead board front wall and ceiling, a 4-window bump out with a window seat, a wall with a charming mural of white brick and green climbing vines painted by a local artist, and a recessed built-in bookcase. The main bedroom and second bedroom and two bathrooms are on the other side of the home. The wood flooring throughout is warm red oak. The home’s design makes the best use of space with storage closets and nooks. OUTDOOR LIVING ROOM: The family room’s sliding glass doors open to the meticulously maintained deck, and a pathway leads to a riverside open patio--a dining area perched high and overlooking the river. This patio’s border is an attractive cool gray ledger-styled stone with path lighting and a stone path to the dock below. THE BACKYARD/BOTANICAL GARDEN AND OUTLOOK/STORAGE BUILDING: The oak trees shade the lush pathways of a variety of plant species found throughout the professionally landscaped lots. The pathways create interest with bubbling water fountains, artwork, butterfly gardens, and fabulous views of the river. Wildlife abounds within the garden making birdwatching an at-home sport. The Red Shed: You have yet to see a “storage shed” as unique as this one. It has a pitched roof, plenty of room for bikes and tools, connected electricity, and a screened porch overlooking the river. THE DOCK AND THE RIVER: A pathway from the home’s upper deck leads to steps that take you to the dock below. The dock is an enchanting place to sit and watch the wildlife that inhabit the area—birds, fish, manatees, and more. Steps from the dock make launching the dockside stored kayaks easy. For those of you wishing a larger home, this property is large enough to build another home while keeping this home as a guest or entertainment cottage. This home is in the Riverbend neighborhood of Seminole Heights. Seminole Heights is known for its quaint bungalows and community feel.
