Year Purchased: 1923
About the owner: I grew up in Richmond, Virginia but have worked for the last 20+ years in international public health in Africa, Asia and Latin America. I have always enjoyed staying at VRBO properties and am delighted to share our Old Florida home with you!
Why the Owner Chose Dunedin, FL, USA:
My great-grandfather built the house in 1923. My mother grew up there and was married in the church across the street in 1952. More than 60 years later, my parents still live here part time. I used to love driving down from Virginia to visit and smelling the jasmine and orange blossoms when we arrived in quaint Dunedin. Our wonderful property manager lives nearby.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
It's such a pretty neighborhood and just two blocks to Dunedin's Main Street, with the farmers' market, shops, restaurants, festivals, etc. Downtown Dunedin is such a cute little Old Florida small town tucked away behind the strip malls. This home has most everything you need. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and dry goods (spices, salt and pepper, plastic wrap, paper towels etc.) We have fresh new linens including beach towels, vases for the jasmine and hibiscus growing around the house, some lovely china and elegant but comfortable furnishings from family travels all over the world. There are two adult-sized bikes and helmets, a bike pump, beach chairs and a cooler.
