Lake Worth bungalow description

If you don't mind small or color or art, you'll love Ann's Wee House. Set inside a mature tropical garden and walled fences, hanging out in the front or back doesn't get more private than this. Yet you're close to the pulse of Lake Worth--four blocks from main street, the best coffee shops, two blocks from a Publix super
market and a 20 minute walk to the beach. Filled with glass and light, the house is a charming 500 sq. ft. Key West-style bungalow in downtown Lake Worth that catches all the breezes.

Three people (two adults and one child), small animals considered. One bedroom (double bed), one bath, LR with sofa/futon, DR table with 4 chairs, gas range and oven, fully equipped kitchen, 32' flat screen TV with basic DISH package, DVD/CD players and tuner, WIFI. Rear yard with pergola and chairs and ottoman, table with chairs and umbrella for eating. Front deck/porch. All linens provided. Central AC and ceiling fans.

Owner managed means more competitive rates for guests because there are no middlemen. It also means a more hands-on service and quicker responses to your questions. My monthly rates are discounted 15%.

              Car: Not Necessary

              An 'evolving' book inside the house sets out many possible activities and places to eat, with an emphasis on art and culture (my personal interest) and consignment shopping. Too many to list here. Towns to the north and south are fun to explore too. West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Juno and Jupiter are to the north; Boynton Beach, DelRay Beach, Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami are to the south.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Travel has been a kind of avocation--a healthy obsession--more than 60 countries 'so far' in mostly the developing world. I have written a memoir about my travels, which started when I was 32. My boyfriend and I sold everything we owned and just went, the first trip for 2-1/2 years. I am settling down a bit now and, when I visited Lake Worth for the first time with a friend, I fell in love with the many wee houses there. In the past, I wasn't really a Florida fan. Over time, though, Florida has been more and more culturally rich; many artists who have settled here have brought their talents and businesses. I love Lake Worth and environs because of the art scene. Lake Worth is also a real town and has an unassuming feel to it. It isn't chichi Florida; there are no high rises, chain restaurants or hotels (well, a Starbucks). I love its diversity. The entire area is up and coming and those of us who have purchased on J Street enjoy a pride of ownership. Lake Worth just keeps getting better and I wanted to be a part of that.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Worth:
              My wee house was love at first sight, a Key West bungalow. The way the house sits back from the street, the TOTAL privacy (you can walk around naked and no one will see you), and the fine craftsmanship. A master carpenter who lived next door once owned and renovated both houses. Every contractor who enters my house is smitten because they appreciate the work.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
              You can walk to town, you can walk to the super market, you can walk to restaurants, everything. You can hop on 95, go north or south on Rt. 1, hop on the TriRail and go to Miami. Hard to beat.
