My Notes

Edit
This lovely home is an example of Beach Park at its finest. Situated on a huge elevated lot, this Historic 1925 Classic Mediterranean features many original light fixtures, built-ins, tile, and other touches that make this such a classic home.Enter through the original wooden door with stained glass window to a huge formal living room with vaulted beamed ceilings and fireplace that opens up to a formal dining room. There is also a large kitchen, family room, bedroom, and full bath downstairs, with 2 bedrooms and a bath upstairs. The rear of the house opens up to a covered porch and a charming guest cottage complete with a full bath. The lush tropical backyard has many entertaining areas surrounding the large heated salt-water pool upgraded with jacuzzi jets and lighting for those perfect night-time parties. This home is a rare gem and should not be missed. The main house has 3BR/3BA (2940 sq ft) and the guest house has 1BR/1BA (406 sq ft).
Neighborhood Description

This home is one of the original 523 homes built by the Beach Park Development Company. Large old Mediterranean homes with sprawling lawns sit next door to spacious colonial residences and smaller ranch style homes built in the 50's. Beach Park boundaries are Kennedy Blvd. to the north, Beachway Drive to the south, Tampa Bay to the west, and Lois Avenue to the east. Beach Park distinguishes itself in South Tampa as a well established, prestigious community.
