Welcome home to this mid-century modern, full of wildlife, oasis in St. Petersburg that you truly must see to appreciate its beauty and magnitude! This serene, one-of-a-kind, retro retreat is located on almost two city blocks in central St. Pete, with a private, spring fed lake that is shared with just one other property. However, no flood insurance is required. Enjoy complete privacy with fencing and natural trees. As you enter the home, you will see the large, sunken living room, with its beautiful, unique, pink, terrazzo floor, a stand-alone fireplace, 10-foot ceiling, and panoramic, ceiling-to-wall windows overlooking the lake. The enormous, family room, which features slate and fool's gold stone flooring, ceiling-to-wall windows with views of the lake, and exposed, wooden beams, can be easily converted into another bedroom, or two. The kitchen has a subzero refrigerator and there’s plenty of room to entertain with a full dining room. The large, hallway bathroom has a 10-foot ceiling, two sinks, a large, decorative piece of driftwood, and a skylight. The fertile backyard of this horticultural haven is enormous, with plenty of room for a pool; an organic garden; beekeeping; and is perfect for entertaining and hosting special events and family gatherings. Many weddings and receptions were hosted in this stunning setting/home. This unique slice of paradise is located on 1.76-acres and has around 1,000 square feet of wraparound porches that overlook the lake. There’s approximately 470 feet of natural lake frontage. In addition to having your own water source, the secluded lake is ideal for canoeing, paddle boarding, and/or fishing and is inhabited by fish, such as bass; otters; and turtles. Relax on one of your porches, or lakeside, enjoying your favorite book or drink, and watch the wildlife attracted to the property, including osprey, hawks, cranes, free roaming peacocks, and eagles. The possibilities are numerous! Move right in; renovate it to your liking; add onto the house; or restore it to its original condition, like it was when it was featured in the local newspaper in 1985. Build a dock. Put some fountains in the lake with lights. A short drive to vibrant, downtown St. Petersburg; restaurants and shopping; I-275; and to the area’s award-winning beaches!
