The owners have continued their renovation of their new winter home by painting the interior with light, brighter paint, installing new carpeting on the stairs and second floor, installing retractable screen doors on all of the doors to better enjoy the evening breezes without visiting bugs, and installing ceramic tile in the kitchen and upstairs bathroom. Last winter they renovated the kitchen with new cabinets, granite countertops and a glass backsplash. This was in addition to the new first floor wood floors; new ceiling fans; all new furniture and bedding they completed the previous year. The existing first floor half bath and new washer dryer make the two story townhouse easy living.
One of the nicest features of the first floor is being able to see the lake and it's splashy fountain from the open living/dining area. Walking out through the large glass doors onto the patio makes watching the resident birds a delight while having dinner or just lounging. It's also an easy 2 minute walk to the fitness center and nearest pool. The second pool on Tampa Bay is only a 3 minute walk in the other direction. Protected from the bay winds it's an ideal location.
The second floor Master bedroom and guest room also have all new beautiful furniture with lively, colorful bedding. A flat screen TV was added last winter The Master balcony overlooks the lake and is a pleasant place to enjoy coffee in the morning or have a glass of wine while watching the sun set over the lake. Between the bedrooms is the main bathroom with an extra large recently updated tile shower and lots of hooks and rods to hold towels.
The Waterside complex is gated. In addition, there is 24 hour security throughout the grounds. We've always felt very safe.
Waterside is just 3 miles from downtown St. Petersburg with all of its museums, shops, restaurants, parks and waterfront. It's a lively walkable town with lots to see and do.
