Other Clearwater Beach Properties house description

Coastal Living Beach Cottage is an 'Old Florida' paradise, conveniently located on an 'enclave' dead end street Old Palm Harbor, a charming coastal suburb of Clearwater, Florida. Impossibly beautiful waterfront views and sunsets are seen from almost every room. With sunshine nearly every day of the year, this home is a FAMILY, LOVER, REUNION, WEDDING or just relaxing getaway with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a large bonus area. Living room and kitchen opens to a 13' elevated 28' wide porch with safety gate and a lower large screened porch. All looking over the most beautiful 'natural pond' heated saltwater pool in the area. It is lined for privacy by over 20 palm trees of different species...and out onto the bayou. The home has NEWLY REMODELED DOUBLE OVEN KITCHEN. Fresh paint and oak and pine floors throughout. This is our home, we built it and, we furnished it for ourselves. As semi-empty nesters, it got large and instead of selling it, we decided to allow guests to enjoy it as we and our guests have for years.

GREAT FOR KIDS!
Swim in pool, off dock, basketball hoop over our driveway (that the vacation house guests next door like to use too so, your kids will seldom be bored :) ) and a fun playground out back next to the sea wall.

WATER FUN!!
We can provide a kayak for enjoying the bay. Boats and bicycles are also available for RENT locally.

The fully equipped CHEF'S KITCHEN has everything you will need to prepare and serve meals. A 'REAL' charcoal or wood barbecue and Adirondack patio furniture offer more dining or relaxing choices on both levels.

The GREAT ROOM has comfortable, leather furniture, a a 50' HDTV with a DVD-CD player, digital cable package with over 200 channels.

The romantic Master suite occupies the entire third floor and has a stunning towering view through the recently upgraded casement windows. Large walk in closet. The master also has a large sitting area with TV. The large master bathroom a two person travertine stone shower and a jacuzzi tub for relaxation.

The playfully decorated CHILDREN’S ROOM has two sets of bunk beds. Image shows lower bunks but we have the upper upper beds put on.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1987

              About the owner: Hi I'm Jeff. They say I should run the local chamber of commerce, I know this area so well and love it so much. I built this house in 1987. I have had literally hundreds of people over the years say that it is the most beautiful and relaxing setting they've experienced. We lucked out! When I built, what is now known as the Pinellas Bike Trail was an active rail-road that woke us at 4am! But we were young and near the water and still loved it. The area only got better and better. Our family now does not need all the space and I can't make myself sell it. PLUS I still need to keep the boat on the dock behind it! My sons Max and Jackson are happy to tell your kids what to do around here.

              Why the Owner Chose Other Clearwater Beach Properties:
              The house and it's view itself makes your stress disappear and your mood elevate but the owner and family really care....you are literally a guest in their own home! Feels very warm, relaxed and not uptight. Go ahead and put your feet on the coffee table.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This house has the most relaxed, laid back feel to it and the most beautiful pool in town. It is walking distance to the 70 mile long bike, roller blade and running trail. No streets to cross getting to it and a few blocks from Pop Stansell Park with a beautiful fishing pier, kids play area and picnic shelters.
