    Description

    Welcome to this 1954 marvelously, magnificent, mid-century home in the highly sought-after neighborhood of Hampton Terrace in Old Seminole Heights. With a diverse array of architecture nestled into one spectacular community featuring the lovely wild-life filled Lake Roberta, this "nifty 3 bed 2 bath home with a BRAND NEW ROOF, over 1900 sq. ft and an oversized 2 car garage, is a wonderful representation of an era gone by. With original design elements adorning many areas of the home, this fabulous property resides on a double lot situated beneath 8 soaring Grand Oaks and featuring a literal Botanical Garden within its boundaries. As you arrive, you will notice the verdant selection of blooming Plumeria and other fine examples of the beautiful flora and fauna that this spectacular landscape has to offer. Stepping up to the front porch and into the home, you arrive in the spacious living room featuring a geometrically patterned Argentinian tiled floor. The flooring continues into the dining room space, that gives way to a Florida Room like none other. Surrounded on three sides by floor to ceiling windows and doors, and featuring a chic terra-cotta mosaic floor, this room blends well and contributes to the abundance of entertaining space within the property. Youll be "having a blast when you see the huge, screened lanai. This alluring space features floor tile from Spain and lends itself to fab soirees and gatherings. Back inside and just off of the dining area is a WOW of a Mid-Century kitchen boasting the original and recently refinished hard wood cabinetry with original stainless-steel door and drawer hardware and the original stainless sink. The green color of the cabinets is original too! Aside from how "cool this kitchen isits HUGE! Pantry space is no problem in the kitchen plus there is plenty of room for a cute little 1950s dinette. Off of the kitchen is your indoor utility with washer and dryer and yet another storage pantry. Back through the home, you arrive to the bedroom wing. With stunning parquet floors throughout, the hallway leading to the bedrooms was originally designed as a "safe space during inclement weather and rumor has it, you can actually fit twin beds in there! Each of the bedrooms is quite substantial in size and each features copious amounts of closet space. The guest bath is also adorned in original tile work. The Master Bedroom features a quaint en-suite with stand-up shower and original tile work too! Throughout the home the nuance of the 50s continues with many original ceiling light fixtures and architectural features that only add to the truly special vibe that this home expresses. And now, you head outside to the back yard to explore a true marvel of horticulture and a testament to the many hours of blood, sweat and tears that the current homeowner has invested in this paradise. Featuring a beautiful Koi Pond complete with 2 Japanese and 5 American Koi the yard is a masterpiece of Brazilian Red Cloak Bush, Chinese Fan Palm trees, Papaya, Halls Avocado, Kapok, Fishtail palm clusters, a Pink powder puff bush and a vast buffet of even more fabulous plants that make up a Botanical brilliance. What a perfect location for parties and gatherings or just to lose yourself in the beauty and splendor of your surroundings. A deep well helps to keep all of this splendor watered and healthy. Become only the third owner of this wonderful home.
