Close to Old Tampa Bay and Downtown Tampa!

(Your First Mortgage)
The bricked streets of this neighborhood lend lovely ambiance to the curb appeal of a 4-bedroom/3-full bathroom/2-car garage home in sought-after South Tampa. With an elegant portico entryway and graceful shade tree, the exterior was treated to new landscaping in 2020, creating a welcoming vista. Featuring a fenced backyard fringed in trees, you’ll enjoy the comfortable patio that’s perfect to accommodate your firepit and lounge furniture. There’s also a large expanse on the side of the home to park your boat and jet skis. A neat storage shed keeps outdoor essentials stowed while the garage’s additional ceiling height allows for the existing car lift. Indoors, boasting 2,080 heated SF and 2 A/C units, the floorplan was thoughtfully designed to give every room its own definition, while allowing each to gracefully integrate for a harmonious aesthetic. Clean lines and arched doorways provide the perfect backdrop for any décor. To begin in the stunning living room, it is topped with a large paddle fan and sliders to the cozy sunroom with its own door to the outdoor entertainment area. As for the dining room, it is surrounded in windows and offers enough space for the largest dining set. If a formal dining room is not your style, this room is flooded with plenty of natural light so can be converted into whatever suits your needs: from a playroom to a family room to a fully loaded home theater. Its proximity to everything in the home makes it incredibly versatile. An open and airy kitchen was refurbished in 2011 with new appliances and cabinets. Its rich tones offset stainless steel appliances that reflect the glass tile backsplash and contemporary fixtures. Besides a handy double oven and large pantry, a pass-through to the living room is perfect for entertaining and serves to open up the space between the two rooms. Lit by a large picture window, the adjacent breakfast room is just off the foyer with views into the dining room. A look at the master and its en suite bath reveals a changing area that sits between the two closets. Adding to the spectacular square footage it allows for any furniture configuration, as well as the addition of a private sitting alcove. (There’s even room for your exercise equipment so you can work out watching your wall-mounted television!) To give your guests or your live-in loved one some privacy, the second bedroom qualifies as another master suite boasting its own luxurious soaking tub, twin sinks, and separate walk-in shower. Lush carpeting covers all the bedrooms with the 4th bedroom currently serving as a spacious home office. Nestled between the shining Old Tampa and Hillsborough Bays you’ll be less than a 20-minute drive to downtown Tampa’s theatrical and cultural centers, its business district and fine dining. The same drive time will get you to the Florida Aquarium, Tampa International Airport, Tampa General Hospital, and the Westshore and International Malls, as well as Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. In your spare time you can also indulge in the host of activities at Picnic Island, including kayak launches and visits to its beach dog park. If you are seeking academic excellence for your college-bound ones, both the University of South Florida and Tampa University are close by. Enjoy the seclusion of this serene neighborhood that offers Florida’s finest; all only a short journey away.
