It's time to claim your little piece of Paradise! Whether enjoying your morning coffee on your covered lanai or taking a late-night swim under the lights, this home will surely be a place to make memories. This beautifully appointed 3-bedroom, 2-bath pool home sits on a quiet, East Englewood street just minutes from the beach and all shopping, restaurants and activities. No HOA's and no flood insurance required as it is X flood zone! Major updates in 2012 include stone tile, granite countertops and stainless appliances and painted in rich, Tuscan colors that give the home a warm feeling. Split floor plan with master suite and bath on one side and two additional bedrooms and bath on opposite side. Separate laundry room with front-load GE washer and dryer as well as shelf space, linen closet and hanging area for drying. Solar-tinted windows with faux wood blinds and awnings keep the summer heat outside, but if you prefer more natural light, they can easily be removed.
This home was built to code without a garage; a carport was added to the side backyard for covered parking by the current owners, and the driveway was replaced with an extra-wide for additional parking space. Current owners converted the large bonus room to an additional bedroom/studio by adding a walk-in closet.
Older A/C system (2002) was just serviced in March (has been serviced 1 to 2x a year since occupancy) and is still running fine, but sellers are including a $3000 credit at closing toward a new system when you are ready. The new roof installed to updated codes in 2018 cut insurance costs almost in half. New electric pool heater replaced solar in 2018, providing year-round swimming; Intellipump pool pump added in 2017 significantly reduced electricity usage. Both bathrooms updated with new tile, sinks, vanities and shower. Professional steel dog kennel was added on left side of house from front to back and allows access for pets from lanai and for owners from yard. Security lighting in rear of home; accent lighting in front. Home is directly adjacent to street light for additional evening light.
A natural bamboo hedge of approximately 8' in height provides a beautiful habitat for birds and strong wind protection from summer storms, while blocking view of neighbors in back. Mature fruit trees (mango, Barbados cherry and avocado) produce at various times throughout the year. Florida-friendly landscaping in front of home and around the pool requires little maintenance and thrives in all weather. Storage shed and small kayak storage gate in back for your toys.
Minutes from three popular beaches for swimming, boating, kayaking; home to many public and private golf courses; close to Spring training baseball facilities in Port Charlotte and North Port; about 20 minutes to Boca Grande and 40 minutes to Siesta Key. Englewood is home to many fantastic restaurants - many beachfront - and shoppers (including thrift shoppers) will never miss the malls or large shopping centers. There is something for everyone in Englewood...a charming town full of friendly people, incredible weather and an abundance of outdoor activities -something to appeal to everyone's taste...and without all the traffic!
