Welcome to your new home in the coveted Granada Terrace neighborhood, here in the Historic Old Northeast. This 1950’s classic mid-century modern home has been tastefully updated with upscale modern finishes, yet still maintains its mid-century roots. The Google Home automation system is astounding, with every light, door, security camera, outdoor sprinkler system, and all entertainment available for changes at the touch of an app, your voice, or geofence settings. You will truly feel like you are living the life of the classic Jetson’s…minus Rosie the Robot of course. If home automation is not your thing, no worries at all, everything works fine without it. Your new historic home sits on an extraordinarily sized lot, providing plenty of room for an added pool or addition. The yard is an oasis of edible plants, fruits, and flowers all planted in several feet of deep, rich, and healthy organic soil. As you walk through the charming pathways, you might just get lost in the abundance of native flora and fauna rarely seen on residential properties. As you walk through the front door, you are immediately met with the original red oakwood floors, which have been meticulously restored with a matte grey finish. Two of the bedrooms can also be found on the main floor, each with large cedar closets. Large terrazzo tiles, so unique to mid-century Florida homes, can be found in the kitchen area. Modern, sleek, solid wood, European style cabinetry sets the tone for this retro kitchen, that boasts all the modern accoutrements we have all grown so fond of having. Think 1950’s kitchen meets 2022 technology. The blending of these two eras is unrivaled in this spectacular place that you will certainly want to call “home”. Upstairs, you will find a spacious ensuite master bedroom and master bath even The Mad Men and Women of 1960’s Madison Avenue would appreciate. A tub easily fit for two and walk-in rain shower makes this space even that much more appealing. Double-vanity sinks and the royal blue, black, and white tiles give you a sense of living in a completely different time period. His and hers walk-in closets are another updated feature of this home, a rare find in historic homes. Your days in this space will be met with the rising eastern sun as it shines down and across Coffeepot Bayou, glimmering like a sea of liquid gold. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, take a seat on your terrace, relax, and take in the pocket view of Coffeepot Bayou. Heading back downstairs into the kitchen, we step out into the covered lanai that leads us back outside where we find a gas heated built in hot tub/spa where you can wind down, enjoy your favorite evening beverage and…relax. Granada Terrace Park is just a block or so away, inviting you to enjoy a walk along the curved streets, parkways, and circular plazas featuring large, beautiful, and historic concrete monuments. Head over to Coffepot Bayou Park, and take a seat on the unique Venetian Steps, where you just may see one of the many Florida manatees or dolphins that call Coffeepot Bayou home. You can launch your kayak, paddleboard, or even your boat using the publicly accessible boat ramp and watersports launch area. Not far away, you find North Shore Park, with an entire coastline dedicated to walking/biking paths and greenspace. North Shore Aquatic Complex, the North Shore Dog Park, the Historic Vinoy Hotel, Beach Drive shopping and dining, and the new St. Petersburg Pier, are your playground. Welcome home.
