Grab a great book . . . . perhaps “The Old Man and the Sea”, or how about “Across the River and into the Trees”, or even “True at First Light”? . . . all great works of Ernest Hemingway . . . and settle into this magnificent beach bungalow and magically be transformed into a relaxing, even ‘sedate’ state of mind. This magnificent cottage, tucked among the sand dunes, littered with sea grapes and sand oats, provides understated elegance and tranquil privacy from the world that surrounds. Originally built in 1935, the home has been transformed and expanded in recent years to create a delightful oasis that will please your senses. From the moment you arrive, you’re greeted with loads of tropical landscaping, brick paved walkways . . . . a bougainvillea bloomed trellis entry leads you to a substantial oversized doorway into your beautiful space. Soaring ceilings in some spaces transcend to cozy spaces throughout, making the home comfortable for everyday living or for that weekend or vacation get-away you have always dreamed up. Renovated in recent years, the home offers a heated pool and spa,as well as a detached cottage with a separate sleeping space and bathroom, featuring top quality throughout! The 'piece de resistance' is the professional chef's gourmet kitchen and the stunning private master-suite with panoramic gulf views from the second level of the home. The family room, Florida and living rooms, all look out to the pool and gulf. Florida living personified, the renovations include raised rooflines and ceilings, adding authentic oak wood floors, slate tile in wet areas and 5-star amenities, including the master bedroom (large shower, large Jacuzzi) a media room with built in surround sound (could be 4th bedroom in the main home), high-impact windows, heavy duty metal roof, plaster walls, custom woodwork and speaker system, lighted walkways and more! The kitchen addition is wonderful for entertaining with imported wood center island, beamed ceilings, Wolf stove, oven and microwave, SubZero refrigerator, soap-stone and marble countertops, Franke sinks and a separate wet bar area with wine/beverage refrigerator. An outside covered porch is perfect for outdoor entertaining and grilling, just steps from the pool and the beckoning beach and gulf waters. Located on St. Pete Beach in Pass-a-Grille, you are a short bike or golf cart ride away to restaurants, shops, galleries and a short drive away from the world renowned Pink Hotel – The Don Cesar with gourmet dining, private beach club and more. So come . . . . . bring your favorite book . . . . . . snuggle in for a day and you’ll fall in love forever!
