Property description

This cozy home was built in the 1920's, and totally remodeled and renovated in 2007. The kitchen is large and fully equipped, 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. The house is close to the hub of activities in Pensacola. Festivals, night clubs, churches, restaurants, the harbor, Wahoo's stadium, the Saenger and Pensacola Little theater are within walking distance, and the eclectic neighborhood is always bustling with activity. There is a market every Saturday on Palafox. There are shops and restaurants all along Palafox. The neighborhood is filled with big homes, bungalows and cute shotgun houses mixed with businesses. The downtown is going through a revival, and many houses here have been fixed up over the years.
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 queen size bed, and a small, private, sitting room/TV room. The second bedroom has the 2 twin beds and also houses the Internet connection and a TV. The livingroom has a pull out couch, if needed, and there are 2 cots in the basement. If you have more than 4 people, the extras will have to sleep on the pull out or the cots. Though the house is not suitable for very small children, those over 6 will enjoy this room and the that huge rocking horse in the basement.
My daughter, Susanna, manages the property, and lives right around the corner, if you have questions. Towels, sheets, pillows and blankets are provided, as well as dish and laundry soap. Please put down the correct amount of people. If there are more than 4, I have to plan cleaning accordingly.

Car: Recommended

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 South Pensacola, Pensacola, FL, USA:
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.
