Updated Florida bungalow close to downtown & the bayfront! The perfect mix of old Florida charm & modern amenities: new kitchen appliances, recently updated bathrooms, new AC, new water heater, newer roof, fresh paint inside & out with beautiful original heart pine floors throughout, cedar closets, solid wood interior doors with original knobs, built-in bookcase room dividers & grid-framed luan Phillippine mahogany walls & ceilings awash with gorgeous natural light throughout. Combined with the 9’ ceilings, this adorable home is spacious, welcoming & truly move-in ready. The updated landscaping, large back patio & fully fenced, private backyard are the perfect beginning for you to maximize a chill, outdoor space for entertaining or a Zen retreat. The 1-car garage is a rare find that could be the perfect spot to store your bikes, paddleboards, kayaks & other outdoor toys. Interior laundry room off the kitchen is another convenient bonus surprise. New 2021 AC & water heater for maximum energy efficiency. New roof in 2011, plumbing & electrical updates as needed over the years. Gas line to home was disconnected by prior owner in 2006 but is remains for future hookup. Other big cost-savings include Flood Zone X & no HOA or CDD fees. The “Baumgartner House” is a rare Depression era built home of Frame Vernacular design located in the Valencia Terrace subdivision, originally platted by Thomas Crisp in the Central Cocoanut National Register Historic District, a few blocks north of the Rosemary District & downtown Sarasota. Historic research available for a buyer wishing to apply for Historic Designation with the city. Excellent vacation rental possibility. Uber in from the airport & never need a car!
