Description

This well-maintained 1918 Craftsman Bungalow with modern conveniences and picturesque views will capture your heart. The architectural design that took over the nation in the early 1900s has gained popularity once again—known for its central living spaces and open-concept layouts. The restored six-bedroom, four-bathroom home maintains its historic Old Florida charm, abundant outdoor living spaces, and a quatrefoil-shaped Koi pond. Nestled on a .78 acre, private setting adorned with mature trees; the Beville-Forster House offers an inviting, spacious, covered front porch that leads into the main home. You and your guests are greeted with rooms grand in scale and rich in historical details, including 9-foot ceilings, authentic heart pine floors, picture moldings, solid interior doors, and large windows offering bright, natural light. To the foyer’s left is a large guest bedroom and an owner’s suite with a period fireplace, a walk-in closet, and a vintage bathroom with an arched tub enclosure. On the right is a large living room with a fireplace and sunroom featuring wrap-around windows. Pocket doors separate the living and dining rooms, with a large open deck off the dining room, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or an evening with friends and family. The updated kitchen features hardwood cabinetry, handmade tile countertops, 1932 Magic Chef gas range, built-in shelving, and tile floors. A 2nd master guest bedroom with an adjacent bathroom is located in the rear of the home, along with a two-level au pair or caretaker suite. It is complete with a kitchenette, bathroom, and separate upstairs bedroom. The back porch and covered walkway connect the main home to the two-car detached garage with a fully furnished 2nd-floor studio apartment or “carriage house”. It features a full kitchen, bathroom, vaulted ceilings, balcony, and a large yard. There is plenty of space for multi-generational living, Airbnb, or B&B with ample parking. Theaters and restaurants are close by and only minutes to downtown, the mall, shopping, hospitals, and the VA. Scheduling appointments now for private tours! Call and set your appointment today.
