About the Property
Beautiful 4 bedroom, private home with a separate guest house, gorgeous pool.
The "Florida" room envelops you in cozy warmth, painted in a custom Benjamin Moore color, that is a deep "stunning" blue. This room features a "60" flat screen TV, and French doors that open out to the side patio. Walk along the brick terrace to the new T shaped saltwater pool, nestled among your private tropical garden, filled with the scents of jasmine and gardenia.
The formal dining room has seating for 6, and has French doors that lead out to the Loggia, a beautifully covered outdoor dining area with seating for 4~ Step through this gate to the pool, for more al fresco dining.
The kitchen is newly updated with all new appliances and fixtures, and an induction range.
The three bedrooms in the main house are upstairs; the Master bedroom has a king size, four poster bed, and is furnished in soft white, neutrals and pale blue, for a calming spa like feel.
The bathroom for this bedroom is next door, and features the original tub and tile from 1925. The shower head has been replaced, and the room has been updated with crisp white paint and blue "coral" fabric to create a fun "beach-y" vibe, without compromising the integrity of the era.
The next guest room-the "sea turtle" (navy bedroom) has a queen size bed, and is fashioned to look like a daybed, with lots of down pillows.
The "starfish" bedroom also has a queen size bed, and is done in soft white, with pops of pink & orange.
These two bedrooms share the "bumble bee" bathroom, which features the original 1925 yellow & black tile, a unique black octagonal sink, and black light fixtures. There is a stall shower in this bathroom (no tub), and a new shower head.
All three bedrooms have TV, new mattresses, new luxury linens, and 100% down pillows & duvets.
The Guest Cottage(Casita Lucinda)-This separate cottage, is steps away from the pool, and offers an additional 400 sq. feet. of living space; Enter thru the newly located door to the right, and what once was a tiny garage space has been converted into a gleaming white storage/laundry area with plenty of storage for towels, serving pieces, extra cushions, pool accouterments, etc. Enter the one bedroom cottage thru this space into the newly configured living area. The kitchen, and bathroom(with shower), remain in the same location. The bedroom has a new queen size bed, and there is a daybed in the living room that has a twin mattress, with a second twin bed (trundle style) underneath. The kitchen has a stove, fridge and microwave. There is a breakfast "nook" with seating for 4, and there is a new TV in the antique pine armoire.This adorable little guest suite will sleep 2-4 people.

The pool is right outside the backdoor, and even though the property is fenced in, the pool is not. I have had plenty of children come to stay, but a child can easily get to the pool, so parental supervision is a MUST, at all times....moreless
Non Smoking Only:
I would consider it OK to smoke OUTSIDE, But not INSIDE my home. All of my furniture is newly upholstered, and the entire house was painted a year ago. I really do not want anyone smoking in the interior spaces. So please don't smoke....moreless

There is so much to do and see in this area; If you like sports, music, theatre, antiquing, fishing, sightseeing, history, shopping, eating...LOL... the list goes on and on. That's why I have a "must-do-book" that you will receive via email, and a "hard copy" when you arrive at my home. It gives you an insider's guide to Palm Beach as well as West Palm Beach, with all the hidden "gems" that you might never have heard of!
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: As you get older it is lucky to find a "new" path, one that has lead me to this home and a business I love. I had no idea when I bought this home, that less than 3 years later I would find myself in the "vacation" home rental business. It was really by chance. When my Mother passed away, I was lucky enough to have the money to Purchase a home. I had spent all my winters in New York for the past 20 years, and decided I had had enough...I wanted the warmth and sunshine of another place. I had never really been "over the bridge" to WPB before, having spent my childhood vacationing with my family on Palm Beach. But when my youngest brother moved to WPB, I mentioned that I would like to look at some houses? He found me this one! I bought it without even seeing it! I loved it from the 1st time I saw the photos. WPB is a unique place, and it has changed dramatically throughout my lifetime...The area my home is in, has not changed; Beautiful, Historic homes, built around 1925...But, now there is great shopping, art, culture, music, all within a short distance. The beach, the "lake"(people refer to it as the intercoastal now)...But it will always be Lake Worth to me! I love the sea, and everything about the beach...but, I also love the quiet of the lake, the bike path that winds along the lake on "The Island" is still one of my most favorite things to just walk along with my dog, Perlita. I hope to someday spend a lot more time there, but in the meantime I hope my "guests" will enjoy it as much as I do.
Why the Owner Chose Central Park, West Palm Beach, FL, USA:
My Grandparents would spend the New York winters in Palm Beach, and they wouldn't come back up north until spring! My mother would send my brothers and my sister and I down on vacation, to spend time with them. Palm Beach was such a magical place, and I had such fond memories of those years, so long ago. So when one of my brother's moved to West Palm Beach, and I started to visit the area again, I discovered the historic districts of West Palm Beach, and fell in love with Southland Park & El Cid. I bought this home, knowing that I wouldn't be able to travel in the same "style" that my Grandparents had, (spending the entire winter on vacation) but, I hope to spend as much time there as I can. I love the area, the houses, the tropical climate, the beach, the bike paths, the quaint little restaurants...the antique shops...my neighbors...you get the idea!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The pool is what caught my eye originally...then the landscaping, the lush, tropical feel, and the privacy... the historic Mediterranean architecture... all reasons why I fell in love with the house... The hard wood floors, the fireplace, the original french doors, the leaded windows...all remind me of "Old Palm Beach", and an era when my Grandparents would have been living and socializing in homes, very reminiscent of mine.
