Located in the beautiful historic downtown district of Venice, just a short distance to shopping and restaurants, one of the original 1926 homes is now for sale. This unique home has nearly 100 years of history and has been lovingly maintained by the current owners. Originally designed as a 3 bedroom, 2 bath single family home, it was converted to a two family dwelling many years ago.
The front unit is a one bedroom one bath. The large living area showcases the original fireplace and restored wood flooring. The back unit is a two bedroom, one bath with a separate entrance.
The current owners have made renovations including bathrooms, and new flooring where needed. In 2017 the owners installed a new roof and replaced one of the two AC units.
All windows were replaced with hurricane impact glass. The shaded deck in the backyard offers a lovely spot to relax and enjoy the peaceful serenity of this quiet neighborhood. With xeriscape landscaping including rock and washed shell, lawn maintenance is minimal. Automatic Landscape lighting creates a beautiful evening setting. The ideal location and beach cottage décor make this property very desirable for seasonal guests. Guest reviews are highly complementary with many guests returning year after year. The home is being sold turnkey furnished. This charming home can continue to be an ideal investment property or it can be converted to it's original 3 bedroom 2 bath single family home. Another option would be to live in one unit and use the other as a rental property. A 1031 exchange is another option with future conversion from a rental investment to a primary residence. See your financial advisor for those details.
Note: Because of current tenants in place, showings will be somewhat restricted until May 1st, 2021. Plan ahead and don't miss out on this opportunity to own a special piece of Venice history.
