Character, charm and property, property, property! On a nearly half- acre, tree-lined corner, this modernized '20s BUNGALOW, GUEST COTTAGE, and salt-water POOL combo is your South Tampa OASIS. Take advantage of all that Florida has to offer and move into your very own KEY WEST STYLE RETREAT—a private compound and the ultimate home office setting. Situated in the Ballast Point neighborhood you can walk to several restaurants, including the local bodega with the best Cuban sandwich in town and Big Ray's fish fry with a 5-star Grouper sandwich. Also walkable is Tampa Yacht & Country Club, waterside public parks and boat docks, the stellar elementary school, and a soon-to-open organic farmer's market on MacDill. Or, make the easy drive up Bayshore Blvd to reach downtown Tampa in minutes. The original 1927 house offers historic Florida's finest: rare plaster cove ceilings, original Old-growth pine floors throughout and shiplap kitchen ceiling and walls, and turn-of-the-19th-century Port Tampa railroad tracks just visible under the oyster shell driveway. The northeast-facing front porch is perfectly situated, staying shaded most of the day. It's an ideal place to read a book and greet the friendly neighbors. High-end upgrades include natural gas cooking, whole-house water filtration, tankless water heaters in both the main and pool houses, a 2018 metal roof, and a 7-zone irrigation system. The fully-enclosed backyard features a large deck off of the main house's kitchen, mature Florida friendly landscaping, pool and patio storage, and a whole lot of extra room for pets, entertaining, and parking—there's so much space for parking!! Turn on the relaxing rock waterfall, and take full advantage of the refurbished mid-century, open deck pool by lounging, grilling, enjoying naturally shaded late afternoon swims, or watching for feathered wildlife from nearby wetlands. Both the pool filter and saltwater systems are brand new and top of the line. The privacy fence has three gates that allow you to pull in and park motorcycles, riding mowers, extra cars, watercraft, and recreational vehicles in the backyard out of sight. To complete the package is a contemporary guest cottage featuring a one-car garage, kitchenette with wine refrigerator, and lots of closet space. Its walk-in shower with a poolside entrance makes it quite handy for post-swim rinses. The open living space is perfect for entertaining friends and family or for use as a guest space or extended family quarters. And if you're interested in working from home—you can't beat the commute! See the attached 2019 land survey and see for yourself just how spacious the property is and imagine how you might enjoy it as is or expand your living space! We're happy to share our plans for a master suite extension that turns this precious gem into a 4bath/4bedroom (or more) estate! The phone # is dedicated to the sale of this house so simply leave your name and #, we will know what you’re calling about. We will set up a time for you and your buyer’s agent to tour our home on your own. An attorney will be handling our end of the closing. Thank you.
