Property 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 30 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 max. (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 charcoal grill for eating. Small 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. Monthly rates are discounted $300 compared to weekly rates.

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 70 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. When I visited Lake Worth for the first time with a friend, I fell in love with the many wee houses here. I wasn't really a Florida fan in the past. But 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 other areas because of the art scene. It's also a real town with an unassuming feel, no high rises, chain restaurants or hotels (well, a Starbucks). I love the diversity of languages you hear up and down main street. 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.
