There is living in Florida, and then, there is living the Florida lifestyle! Have them both with this one of a kind .46 acre of riverfront property. With 165 ft of improved shoreline along Tampa’s Hillsborough River, the 2 BDRM, 2 BTH classic 1947 Florida cottage is nestled under grand trees with professionally designed gardens throughout. Kayakers and paddle boarders row past and call out to neighbors. Electric boats drift by on an evening cocktail cruise or dress up and take their boats to a symphony at the Straz Center or just cruise out to Tampa Bay.
Staying home is a treat! You can hang out on the back deck or the dock or dine al fresco on the patio overlooking the river. Throw a garden party and watch your guests stroll through the grounds or just sit on the front porch and say hello to the dog walkers and baby carriage pushers. Another option is one of the three parks within walking distance and one other large, open riverfront park a half mile away. It’s your choice on how to enjoy this idyllic setting.
Wildlife abounds. Manatees, dolphins, turtles, 20 species of fish and an occasional alligator may be seen. The night belongs to bats and owls. Osprey, kingfishers, herons, cormorants fly along the river, and the shoreline trees are full of all the songbirds your birdfeeder can feed.
Located in the highly desired Seminole Heights area (the Coconut Grove of Tampa!) and zoned for 2 lots, the property allows for several options:
1 Build a new home and live amongst the trees and garden with full riverfront views.
2 Expand the Florida cottage up into the canopy and out into the garden thus adding to the charm of the 1947 architectural details while creating your own spaces.
3 Live in the cottage and build a second home for family members.
The neighborhood and street are amazingly quiet. Located in the middle of town, this green oasis is equidistant from downtown Tampa and the University of South Florida. This home offers a life rich in charm, nature, and a sense of community. Call today to see this one-of-a-kind riverfront retreat.
