Perfect as a winter escape or as a full-time residence, this charming 'Old Florida' cottage, nestled on a quiet street, on an oversized corner lot, in the heart of Old Englewood, evokes a comforting sense of nostalgia and delight from all who enter. Upon entry, guests will appreciate a spacious and inviting living room that transitions gracefully to the cozy dine-in kitchen with a convenient pass-through window leading to the Florida room. The adjacent laundry room is accessible through the garage and offers a washer, dryer, and handy shelving and was designed to serve as an additional half-bath, with a toilet and a recently updated vanity sink. Two bedrooms were designed to accommodate owners and their guests in comfort with a shared bathroom with a tub/shower combination. This home offers an expansive outdoor entertaining area. Here, the possibilities are endless, with room for a pool, ample room for your furry friends, or to create lush tropical gardens--the choice is yours. A recently updated screened porch was designed to comfortably accommodate a gathering of friends or a small intimate dinner for two. An attractive paver walkway leads to an outdoor patio with room for a grill, a comfortable seating area, or perhaps a cozy fire pit--the choice is yours. For the resident gardener, there is a storage shed to store your tools and to help keep everything neat and tidy. Guests will appreciate the distinctly 'cottage' feel found throughout the home. Its tasteful tropical colors are accentuated by the classic beauty of terrazzo floors and large windows overlooking the outdoor entertaining area found just steps from the back door. In addition, an enclosed attached garage and a large driveway provide plenty of room to park your boat in preparation for launching at the nearby boat ramp. A new HVAC system was installed 3 years ago for peace of mind. From here, it is a short bicycle ride (or golf cart ride if you prefer) to downtown Englewood and historic Dearborn Street, where you can explore eclectic shops, delectable dining opportunities, and purchase fresh produce at the fabulous Englewood Farmer's Market. For added entertainment, a new open-air amphitheater will host a wide variety of events to enjoy. Within a short stroll from the front door is the Lemon Bay Environmental Park, one of Englewood's hidden gems with 1.7 miles of shoreline on the beautiful Lemon Bay Aquatic Preserve. A trail system extends through pine flatwoods and mangrove forests, and circles wetlands where birds gather. It is the perfect learning laboratory in which to expand your knowledge of coastal habitats. If you are in search of close proximity to pristine Gulf beaches, shopping, entertainment, and dining--all with an 'Old Florida' vibe, look no further.
