Nestled in the historical neighborhood of Gillespie Park, just a block away from the vibrant Rosemary District, stands the Driftwood House, our lovingly restored 1925 craftsman bungalow. Driftwood House is a testament to history and modernity entwined, boasting an open floor plan, a spacious front porch veranda, and a picturesque garden that invites relaxation.
This two-story gem reveals its heritage in the beautifully preserved wood floors and the classic warmth of an electric fireplace set within the original hearth. Careful restoration and thoughtful decoration echo throughout the home, complemented by the enchanting Harry Potter-themed nook tucked under the stairwell, sure to delight fans and spark the imagination of every guest.
Upstairs, the private quarters feature three cozy bedrooms with plush bedding: a king-size sanctuary, a queen retreat, and a room with two twin beds, each space crafted for restful slumber. The fully stocked large kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances and a generous center island, is a foodie's dream, while the screened back patio offers a tranquil dining experience amidst the Florida breeze.
Stepping outside, the large backyard with BBQ and outdoor seating sets the stage for memorable evenings under the stars. The expansive front porch, coupled with a fenced-in landscaped yard and courtyard dining set, ensures every outdoor moment is enjoyed to the fullest.
Within this inviting abode, modern family amenities blend seamlessly with historic charm. High chairs, booster seats, and baby gates cater to the little ones, while free WiFi, laundry facilities, and air conditioning provide all the comforts of home.
