Dunedin house description

Our Dunedin coastal cottage is on a large corner lot surrounded by multi-million dollar homes, old fashioned red brick roads and a circular driveway made of shells. The home is on a very quiet, pedestrian friendly street with very little vehicular traffic. Throughout the park-like yard there are various sub-tropical palm
trees and native Florida birds. (The photograph of the Heron bird was taken from the front porch of the home).

A stone's throw away is a neighborhood park with awesome views of the multi-colored sunsets, Clearwater Harbor, the Gulf of Mexico, Caladesi Island and Honeymoon Island. Across Clearwater Harbor, as night falls, you can see local wildlife roosting. The stunning views will take you back in time 100 years to the days when Florida's coastline was more populated with seagulls than people. Yes, pelicans, sandpipers, ospreys, manatees and dolphins are part of everyday life here!

This Dunedin home (just north of Clearwater beach) is located one small block from the historic Pinellas trail and Hammock Park, 3 miles from Caladesi & Honeymoon Islands, 1 mile from a public Golf course, Tennis courts, and two marinas, 5 miles from Clearwater beach and 8 miles from Tarpon Springs.

Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands (just north of Clearwater beach) are the most exotic of the Gulf Coast beaches. Our coastal cottage is minutes from the top ranked beaches in the nation (Caladesi Island, Fort DeSoto and Sand Key).

Enjoy the serene, tropical coastal living our home offers, just 5 minutes away from Clearwater beach (without having to experience the beach congestion and noise).

Email us today and start enjoying the spectacular Gulf views and relaxing sunsets in a peaceful tropical setting.

This attractively decorated home features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, family room, and a sunroom (all new furniture throughout the entire home). The coastal home sleeps 7 comfortably. The master bedroom has a new king-size bed, a new 32 inch flat screen cable TV, a high definition DVD player and a tranquil view of the swaying palm trees. The second corner bedroom has two new twin beds and a similar view of the Florida palms.

The family room has two new sofas, one of them is a queen-size sofa bed. The family room also contains a new 50 inch flat screen cable TV and a large movie collection. The sunroom has a new twin sofa bed (this room also doubles as a miniature library with a wide variety of books). The living room has a new Hemingway-style sofa, love seat and chair.

Cookouts and gatherings with family and friends are encouraged! The home includes a large gas barbecue grill in a covered patio with a table and 6 chairs.

A newly remodeled kitchen with all new appliances including a new dishwasher, microwave, stove, refrigerator, coffee maker and toaster.

My husband, the photographer, has his Florida photographs on display throughout the home.

The home also includes:
Free unlimited phone calls nationwide.
Wireless high speed internet service.
Free use of 3 adult bicycles(Raleigh bicycles, like new).
