This 1910 beauty in St. Petersburg, Florida will be hard to pass up. Between its historic charm, new ultra-modern renovations, and resort location, be prepared for a dazzling experience.
Located at 140 13th Avenue NE in a walkable and bikeable part of town, the property includes the 2,974-square-feet main house with three bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as a separate one-bedroom, one-bath, 504-square-feet mother-in-law suite situated atop the detached three-car garage. Though the front of the façade contains a small porch and window flower boxes, the back is encircled with a mostly covered, nearly 200-square-feet wrap around deck that’s perfect for outdoor entertaining.
When you walk in the front door, the original staircase with lavishly restored, handcrafted molding will instantly wow you along with the spacious open floorplan stretching from the living room to the dining room and kitchen. A home office and downstairs bath are off the living room.
The kitchen is a foodie’s delight. In addition to stone countertops, wooden shaker cabinets, and a pantry, it is equipped with high-end smart appliances, including a WiFi refrigerator. The kitchen area not only contains enough room for a breakfast nook, but the large bartop is ideal for buffets.
On the second floor, the master suite contains a reading area, large closet, and en-suite bath with neutral tiles, glass panels, and double vanity. The two expansive guest bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom, and an 8 x 8 laundry room is just down the hall.
The third level, which is the only carpeted area of the house, is large enough for a ping pong table and perfect for a playroom or man cave. While the 5,227-square-feet lot contains lush green space now, it is large enough to add a swimming pool.
