Active With Contract. Welcome to The Happy House! With beach cottage colors and an open floor plan, this home truly speaks to Florida living. Built in the age when architects and builders still considered the movement of the sun, the house is bright and at the same shaded. The current owner added double-hung insulated windows and impact resistent Bahama shutters. Pebble-dash surrounds the 14'x28' solar / electric heated pool and the large backyard has 6' fencing with privacy trim and screening plants. The house has many features, including a solar water heater, corian counters and solid wood cabinets in the kitchen. The deliberate design of the kitchen leaves drawer cupboards sans doors. Both bedrooms feature walk-in closets, and both bedrooms have sliders to the pool area. The lanai around the pool is vast enough for entertaining or simply lounging. The pool itself is larger than the average at 14x28 feet. The yard itself is not only fully fenced but ample enough for activities and pets. And if you have been working in the yard, you may want to use the outdoor shower before jumping in the pool. This property is a short distance to Historic Dearborn Street, and a short drive to any one of three beautiful Manasota Key beaches.
