This lovely Mediterranean-style home, built in 1920, sits on a beautifully landscaped spacious lot in St Petersburg’s desirable Historic Old NE neighborhood next to downtown, in a sought-after non-evacuation and flood zone X location. William Straub, a significant civic figure in the city’s history, was the home’s first owner. The current owner of 27 years has collected 1920s-era photos and postcards featuring the home. Filled with natural light, the home features 4 bedrooms with larger closets and 3 bathrooms, two of which are ensuite with one on the ground floor. The inside utility is also conveniently located there. There is a detached oversized 2-car garage on the alley with room for a workshop. Overhead is a walk-up income producing efficiency apartment, currently leased. There have been many upgrades. In 2021 the owners installed an efficient 2-zone HVAC system and replaced 32 of the older windows with impact windows consistent with the style of the home. Off the kitchen and living areas at the back of the home, you’ll find a large deck constructed in 2022 with low-maintenance TREX composite boards. In fact, there are several outdoor living spaces for gatherings. Other features include an irrigation system and security system and a rare partial basement/cellar. See attached list for more features. The welcoming and expansive front porch, side porch off the dining room, and private balconies off the upstairs bedrooms are perfect for sipping your morning coffee. The large and warm kitchen, featuring butcher block counters and a large gathering table, overlooks the back yard plus opens to a large casual living space featuring one of the two wood-burning fireplaces in the home. With its coveted architectural style and spacious, comfortable floor plan, this home has what the current owners and visiting guests have described as “good energy.” A bygone era is evoked throughout the home with period lighting, original Cuban tile, and original heart of pine floors. Now downsizing, the homeowners want this beloved family home to be enjoyed by new owners who will appreciate its specialness as well. This home is in walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops, Sunken Gardens, Crescent Lake Park, Tampa Bay waterfront parks, and much sought after pickleball and tennis courts. Take a short bike ride to theaters and museums or a long ride on the dedicated Pinellas Trail. Convenient to beautiful Gulf Beaches, Tampa, I-275 and several International Airports, this is paradise living. Please view Fact Sheet for more information on this home.
