Escape to your own TROPICAL PARADISE in the heart of Palma Ceia! This amazing and unique townhome is just 3 blocks from beautiful Bayshore Blvd, 1 block from Bay to Bay Blvd, and walking distance to TONS of restaurants, shops, coffee houses, gyms, and parks - in one of the coolest and most eclectic South Tampa neighborhoods! Bike, Rollerblade, or walk to Hyde Park Village, Downtown Tampa, Channelside, Davis Islands and MacDill AFB via Bayshore, “The longest, continuous sidewalk in the world”! Bayshore is perfect for daily exercise, or to watch the sunrise or moonrise, or even dolphins playing in Tampa Bay – all just steps away! You cannot beat this location on a quiet side street, yet close to all the activities and action, and in the absolute best school district in Tampa Bay, with Roosevelt Elementary and Plant High School both within walking distance.
This “fee simple” (NO HOA FEES!!) 2 bedroom plus loft 3 bath townhouse, has a unique and modern design, inside and out. The home is protected by a privacy wall around the entire property and a security gate into the covered carport and entryway. There is a side patio off the kitchen (perfect for a BBQ grill) and an AMAZING brand-new wrap-around deck, extending around the rest of the home. This custom deck was built with premium building materials and adds an additional 420 square ft of outdoor living space to the home. The decorating and entertaining options are endless! Many varieties of palm trees, grandfather oaks, and tropical landscaping surround and shade this home and its courtyards. Three separate bromeliad tree gardens are interspersed amidst the Florida native and FL friendly landscaping, also featuring an in-ground irrigation system.
A retro-modern theme is carried throughout this home. The downstairs is comprised of a large 2 story space with 8 floor-to-ceiling picture windows and four large sliding glass doors letting in natural sunlight throughout the entire day. Upstairs, “The Loft” provides the perfect additional third room for an in-home office overlooking the wall of windows and tropical gardens, making "working" from home a little easier.
The interior has been updated with terrazzo and granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, Kohler sinks and modern one-piece toilets. Both bedrooms are large with high ceilings and new carpet - each having a private full bathroom. The master has a covered outdoor balcony and a master bath with double shower heads. The second bedroom has a great view of the tropical back patio (not the back of someone else’s townhouse like so many South Tampa properties). The entire building is stucco over concrete block (not frame on the second story like so many homes) and has been recently painted, inside and out, using top of the line Sherwin Williams products - this home is MOVE-IN READY!
Features such as a top-of-the-line Trane air conditioner, gas hot water heater, gas dryer, and new washer, make this home extremely energy efficient with low monthly bills. (And NO HOA FEEs!!!). Modern chrome and stainless fixtures, black outlets, switches, lights, and black railings make this a truly unique property, and especially fun for modern interior decorating.
Between the landscaping, palm trees, security wall, and building design, you can enjoy complete privacy from all neighbors and passersby – this is a true TROPICAL OASIS RETREAT in the heart of charming South Tampa!
