Rare, historic Spanish Mediterranean gem built in 1925. “Newton House” was the second house built in the coveted “Pink Streets” of Pinellas Point and has been lovingly restored by the current owners. Sitting on almost one-half acre, the Cuban resort-style bungalow has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with 2108 square feet of living space. Commonly found in the Mission architecture of the 20s, the home was built around an enclosed courtyard to catch the constant breezes of Pinellas Point. The courtyard has been converted into a sun-filled atrium that still serves as the heart of the home. Extraordinary original cement Cuban tile floors are found in the living room, dining room and office/guest bedroom to cool the interior. Original wood floors in the bedrooms and an original, individually laid marble tile kitchen floor show the detail and craftsmanship of this home. Architectural details in the authentic design include rough plastered interior walls with curved corners, coved and beamed 12’ ceilings, metal detailing, arches and a stucco exterior. These historic features have been lovingly and accurately restored, while bringing the home completely up to date with new electrical wiring, electric panel, plumbing, air conditioning, water heater, pool pump and pool resurfacing, kitchen and bathroom appliances and fixtures, roof and atrium cover. The bungalow boasts two en-suite bedrooms. A large master bedroom features two walk-in closets and a master bath with double sinks, a large shower, original private toilet stall, and offers a commanding view over the pool and resort-like oasis that is the backyard. A second en-suite bedroom also overlooks the lusciously landscaped backyard and the bathroom accesses the pool deck to double as a pool bath. The third bedroom smoothly transitions as an office or guest accommodation. The living room features a double-sided fireplace, faced with stone from Stone Mountain, GA on the living room side and a traditional Mediterranean shape on the atrium side. Beautiful arches separate the dining room (capable of seating 14) from the atrium with an open, airy feel. As with the rest of the house, the completely remodeled kitchen allows for easy entertaining. The kitchen features open shelving, soapstone counters, and stainless steel appliances with natural gas cooktop. The very private backyard is a tropical oasis, complete with a large, 11-foot deep swimming pool, resurfaced shuffleboard court and meticulous landscaping of indigenous Florida foliage. The backyard is grand enough to build a pool house or in-law suite or simply keep the yard and gardens for your own to relax and entertain - like few others in St. Petersburg can – in your own tropical resort. Indoor laundry and a 1-car detached garage complete the amenities of this one-of-a-kind gem.
