Pensacola house description

This cozy home was totally remodeled and renovated in 2007. The kitchen is large and fully equipt, the dining room seats up to 10 and lends itself well to small parties that often flow out through the kitchen to the back patio. Folding lawn chairs, a portable fire pit, and a large table are available for use on the patio. The house is close to the hub of activities in Pensacola. Festivals, night clubs, churches, restaurants, the harbor, theaters are within walking distance, yet the neighborhood is quiet and family oriented.
The basement fitness room has balls, bands, a punching bag, two pieces of equipment and a large rocking horse for fun. There is an outdoor shower and changing area to enjoy on warm days. In the basement we keep 2 small cots that could accomodate two small children if necessary
The beds are very comfortable. The master bedroom has a small, private, sitting room/TV room. The second bedroom has the 2 twin beds and also houses the Internet connection and a TV. Though the house is not suitable for very small children, those over 6 will enjoy this room and the toy basket in the living room as will as that huge rocking horse in the basement.

                              North Hill is a beautiful historic neighborhood with many restored turn of the century (20th) homes. It is a good place for long walks and running. A neighborhood park is only 1/2 block from the house. Downtown is within walking distance and has many restaurants, museums, entertainments, and our newly restored and remodeled Sanger theater.

                              Oportunities for deep sea fishing, sailing, and other beach activities abound in the Pensacola area.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1994

                              About the owner: My family and I have lived in the North Hill Historic district for 3 generations. Recently my husband and I moved to a subdivision a little farther from downtown. We love to spend special weekends at the De Soto Street house especially if we have attended an event downtown or at the Sanger Theatre. Every few months we like to have a little mini vacation at the house so that we can relax and stroll around the neighborhood, go the the Naval Air Museum which changes often, and then have Sunday brunch downtown or at the Hilton on the beach.

                              Why the Owner Chose Pensacola:
                              We love the historic district for walking and enjoying the homes and flowers. But actually, the house has been in the family for a long time. It became run down and my family, my husband, many others, and I totally redid the old place, every inch.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              It is fun to have our family parties at the De Soto Street House because there is always something for everybody to do there, walk the neighborhood, go to the park, skateboard, cook, sit out in the back under the palm trees, play in the basement. My mother loves to come because she holds court in the living room from her favorite rocking chair. Everybody else mosies around mixing and mingeling. It seems an easy place for everyone to just be.
