This is Hilton's Pinewood, Large family home almost a century old and only 2 blocks from Point Breeze Beach. This home is not directly on the lake. Built in the 1930's as a summer retreat for my grandfather who was sickly as a child it was originally a single room cottage with a basement for a family of 5. Over the years a room was added on the front, both porches closed off and a master suite added as a 2nd Floor with a small balcony. Very small kitchen with older appliances.
My grandparents retired there and enjoyed working in the gardens for their last 25 years. They enjoyed sharing it with other families when they weren't living there and I want to continue that tradition. It is decorated with family antiques and hasn't changed much in the last 30 years, so it is like a visit to your grandparents house.
It is only a 5-10 minute walk to Point Breeze Beach. Connors and Evans Town Park 2 miles away. Large yard with fenced in dog run, lush gardens and goldfish ponds.
Home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Sleeps 5. Rustic charm with original cabin details. Older carpet through most of home. Ceiling fans upstairs and down. Our family still uses it so it is stocked with dishes, general supplies and we sometimes keep food in the refrigerator. There is an additional fridge/freezer combo just for renters to use.
Parking for 4 cars (2 in front driveway, and 2 in the back driveway), Includes basic cable with DVR, Wi-Fi, DVD player and small assortment of movies provided for property renters.
This home is not updated and has only recently been converted to a part-time rental property. There are the same dishes that my family has used for 50 years in the cupboard. The carpets have stains in spots, but have been professionally cleaned. There is a water stain on the ceiling in the bedroom from an old leak that has been fixed for years.
Please be aware that this home is used by members of my family in between rentals. We clean it throughout before each guest arrives.
