Property description

This beautiful 1925 Mediterranean Revival, 2,100-square-foot, two-story home with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms is nestled on a lot which is among the largest and most private in the El Cid Historic District. Just one block from the Intracoastal Waterway and its spectacular walking, running and riding trail, the property is shaded by beautiful, mature trees that envelope a heated swimming pool, hot tub, kayaks, picnic table and shaded social area. A working fountain celebrates the historic nature of this home.

Within one mile are City Place, the rejuvenated city center with its shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, sidewalk cafes, nightclubs and boutiques; The Norton Museum of Art; Clematis Street's shopping, nightlife and live theatres; the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts; and the Palm Beach County Convention Center. The public beach on Palm Beach Island; the famous Breakers Hotel and Worth Avenue; lectures, films, exhibits, and lessons at The Society of the Four Arts; and a spectacular island trail to explore are less than two miles away.

El Cid’s location on the west shore of Lake Worth, near downtown, combined with its concentration of outstanding period architecture, attracts professionals and business owners who are proud to call the historic district “home.” The El Cid Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Inside, 10’ ceilings, arched doorways and original tile and hardwood floors welcome family and friends. The Sun Room / Office and Living Room ceilings are planked in pecky cypress, highlighted by original crown molding. Arched windows fill three walls of the home’s south-facing Sun Room. The Living Room’s wood-burning fireplace and its ornamental stone hearth elegantly warm occasional cool evenings. The Living Room opens through a large arched doorway into a formal Dining Room with hardwood floors, casement windows and distinctive crown molding. The bright kitchen is of generous proportion, with large windows and French doors leading to the spacious back yard.

The staircase wraps through a wide arched opening with original wrought iron railing. Guests pause and enjoy a delightful crescent-shaped window seat appointed by a large stained glass window to the outside. Directly ahead at the top of the stairs is the Master Bedroom with a private bath, King bed, and walk-in closet. All four bedrooms are spacious and bright, classically detailed with chair rails and crown moldings, panel doors and richly grained pinewood floors. A “Jack and Jill” bathroom between two bedrooms creates an efficient circular floor plan. The Master Bedroom has a King bed; another bedroom features bunk beds; and the third a double bed. The fourth bedroom has room for an inflatable mattress, currently without a bed. Each of the bedrooms includes enough floor space for an inflatable mattress or crib. The Living Room sofa includes a fold-out double bed.

Amenities include a swimming pool and hot tub; kayaks; central air and heat; central alarm system; pond and fountain; fully equipped kitchen with coffee maker, microwave, blender, toaster, and cookware; bed linens/bath towels; washer/dryer; hair dryer; iron/board; very private backyard; outdoor grill.
