Are you looking for a vintage 1920’s bungalow just steps to scenic Rivercrest Park in south Seminole Heights with nearly 1700 heated square feet of renovated glory? May I suggest you pour a cool drink, sit back and relax and let me take you on a journey… your journey, to your forever home. We’ll start in 1924 when this beauty was built with old fashioned craftsmanship and American pride. From the solid massive support beams built with Dade county mature pine to the hand laid waterfall wood siding with each nail hammered home by an expert craftsman. Yes, you won’t want to miss any detail of this story! In 1924 Calvin Coolidge became the first President of the United States to deliver a radio broadcast from the White House; In New York City the first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was held and here’s one for the ladies… Nellie Tayloe Ross of Wyoming was elected the first woman governor of the United States. Also in this year, a family, perhaps just like yours, built this bungalow on this large lot (50’ x 143’ deep) with the legal description being: SUNSHINE PARK REVISED MAP LOT 17 BLOCK 5. With its mild tropical climate, Florida was enjoying a land boom and it seems everyone one wanted a piece of their own little haven to call their own. From the street you take in the gracious lines of the wide covered front porch with porte cochere. The front porch was a great place to sit and rock as you caught up with your neighbors when they came home from work. Come inside now and see how the last 100 years has treated this ole gal. The wide front porch welcomes you into a big open living room/dining room combination with kitchen and family room beyond. Be sure you take note of the lovely original detailing of the window and door trim and the spectacular 4 over 1 windows with original 100 year old glass. If you like to cook, you will love creating your favorite recipes in this kitchen! It offers the upscale look of white carrera marble counters, petite robin’s egg blue glass backsplash and porcelain farmhouse sink. Just off the kitchen is a sunny breakfast nook with built in bench seating, the perfect spot for your morning cup of Joe. The family room overlooks your winning new screened in covered porch with brick pavered flooring and cedar siding and ceiling. What an ideal place to settle in with your friends after dinner to breath in the fresh night air - truly a second family room! The TV that is in place will stay - so go ahead and check out the big game schedule! While you’re out back, take note of the back alley access - perfect for a future driveway pull in or perhaps a garage!! Back inside you’ll discover your master bedroom is an en suite with a super sized bathroom and a BIG WALK IN CLOSET with built in system. The guest bathroom is updated as well and features vintage looking floor tile and wainscoting. Will you be the next owner who will continue the care for this old charmer?
