Historically Restored Home Sets Real Estate Record in Seminole Heights, Florida
A meticulously restored historical home in Seminole Heights just set a neighborhood record. Built in 1900, 5111 and 5109 N. Central Avenue combined sold at full asking price of $819,000.
Listing agent, Sterling Remer of Smith & Associates Real Estate, says every inch of the home has been updated with the utmost attention to detail. “The care the owners took to meticulously restore the home to its full glory is evident, with a nod to modernization but also a remembrance of tradition,” added Remer.
This estate has been completely updated to accommodate the needs of today’s lifestyle while retaining the elegant charm for which this area is beloved. To maintain their authenticity and beauty, the original wood floors were restored with pieces of flooring from a bedroom where the floors had been replaced with plush carpeting. The main home features a functioning wine cellar with a tasting area, a true rarity in Florida, a downstairs master suite, large open bedrooms, coffered ceilings, a large enclosed front porch, an open gourmet kitchen, and another upstairs suite.
At the end of the driveway, there is a carriage house featuring two updated apartment units adding another 1,302 square feet.
From the beginning, Remer appreciated the historical significance of the home. She even set-up a tour of the home with one of the home’s previous occupants, who recalled walking through the groves of guava and citrus trees on the property and having her first kiss on the porch steps. The home’s evolution is reflective of the growth found in this trendy neighborhood that is preserving its character and charm while also attracting the hippest restaurants and new shops. With close proximity to downtown Tampa’s urban core, Seminole Heights is a neighborhood to watch.
