On a spacious corner lot with a sun-dappled front yard, you’ll find this 3 bed/2 bath/1 car garage home with tons of wonderful upgrades. Combining the best of traditional Floridian architecture with contemporary renovations, this welcoming residence is also less than a 10-minute drive to Indian Rocks Beach, the Pinellas Recreational Trail, Largo Rec Center, and the 354-acre Walsingham Park with its boat ramp, playground, fishing platforms, trails, dog park, and picnic shelters. Bordered by the shimmering Gulf of Mexico, this is just an incredibly special community. Great care went into making this home’s exterior both attractive and efficient. Beautiful grass graces the entire property. A neutral-colored, hurricane-rated fence was installed around the perimeter in 2015, while hurricane panels are outfitted on all the windows. The cozy back porch is wood planked, covered, and well maintained. There’s plenty of room for barbequing and for pets to have the run of the yard in the brilliant Florida sunshine. The interior too, feels just like home. It’s light and bright and very inviting. The foyer’s lovely rectangular tiles and wainscoting introduce the sunken living room’s wide-open space and its over-sized windows.

This heart of the home also features an eye-catching architectural niche above the sink and a handy hot water dispenser. Appliance upgrades include: microwave in 1999, dishwasher in 2006, refrigerator in 2009, and range/convection oven in 2012. A striking butler’s pantry completes the picture. There is also a separate utility room off the kitchen that is carpeted, offers plenty of extra storage, and even ample space to add an arts and crafts station! The overall layout of this home is absolutely ideal. You’ll love the formal dining room accented with a chair rail that bisects the complementary color selections. It is comfortably nestled between the kitchen and the amazing family room with its retro-style, sunken entrance. Built-ins and cabinetry were designed to accommodate technology and all kinds of family mementos. Lush carpeting and a tilted wall of windows shaded by an awning set the tone for relaxation with views to the outdoor space. A sought-after split bedroom floor plan lends privacy for houseguests and family members. The pristine master suite boasts brilliant natural light and walk-in closets. Its bath was expertly redone in 2007 with fashionable fixtures and finishes. With the second full bath refurbished in 2018, the other two bedrooms include immaculate carpeting, crown molding, and professional paint jobs. The third bedroom is currently a home office but could also serve as the perfect playroom or study. There are endless ways to define the rooms in this house! For cost efficiency, the yards are kept thriving by the well water that supports the irrigation system. The water heater was replaced in 2019, the new sprinkler pump added in 2020. There’s a programmable thermostat, smoke/heat detectors, and a security system. Despite its proximity to the best beaches and marinas in Florida, this property is NOT in a flood zone. With nearby schools, shopping, dining options, and a quick drive to both Tampa and St Pete’s airports, you CAN have it all in Seminole!
