This one-of-a-kind vintage cottage is the essence of what "Old Florida Style" can mean. Perfectly located at high elevation a half block from the Gulf of Mexico, nestled on a beautifully cultivated shady lot, it is small in size but huge on charm and character. The current owner has consistently improved the structure while blending original elements such as Cypress and Pine ceilings and solid wood cabinetry. The modern kitchen and baths plus spacious master suite addition blend comfortable livability with true historic ambiance. The sunny front entry room is a perfect spot for watching birds and butterflies among the flower beds. The greatroom, kitchen and dining room are in a flexible open L-shape arrangement leading to a multi-functional den/office, lovely guest bedroom and completely updated bath with stylish tiles and fixtures. The inviting master retreat has high ceilings, walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom and doorway to the backyard lounging areas and shell paths.
