This desirable, refurbished 1950’s old Florida home sits on the banks of the Cotee River, winding past lovely Sim’s Park, directly to the GULF OF MEXICO, talk about LOCATION!! The first level features completely updated eat-in kitchen with island, dining/flex space, interior laundry area, and a comfortable living room with five charming original windows offering amazing views of the river. While the home has been completely updated with all the modern amenities, it still maintains much of its 50's charm. Original polished hardwood floors, tongue-in-groove wood framed windows, and shiplap, has been deliberately enhanced throughout the home by incorporating barn and refurbished doors from days gone by. The kitchen has high ceilings with open, overhead pine beams, custom made cabinetry, island with vegetable sink, granite countertops, and LG appliances. Two years ago the home went through a complete renovation including the installation of a four ton AC unit, all ductwork, entire electrical wiring, five electrical panels, on-demand water heater, soffit/gutter system, and was completely re-plumbed. The full bath was completely redone with a walk-in shower, antique dresser/vanity and a beautiful, unique mural that compliments the colors and theme of the home. The upstairs 230sqft bedroom/ half bath is open and airy with a queen size built in bedframe with storage and a one-of-a-kind pulley door, so that privacy is able to be maintained from downstairs. In addition to the bedroom and half bath upstairs, there's an additional 810sqft area ducted for AC/Heat that can be utilized for storage or converted to additional living space/bonus room. The house has a carport for covered parking, a double-car driveway, and new landscaping. A 10ft sliding glass door will take you onto the sundeck for relaxing or al fresco dining. In the backyard, there is a custom built outside shower with an on- demand water heater, covered back porch, and new floating boat dock. Fishing, manatee and dolphin watching, and breathtaking sunsets can all be found in your own backyard. There's so much to say about this home! Located in the heart of New Port Richey, this Gulf access home is a short golf cart ride from shopping, local restaurants, Sims Park and a lively downtown area!
