Historic Pine Avenue - this charming, vintage cottage - affectionately known as the Shady Mango, epitomizes Old Florida charm. Stories of a bygone era resonate within - Originally constructed with heart pine flooring which was delivered by steamer to the City Pier and then hauled by horse-drawn lorry up Pine Avenue to its present site. What began as a modest overhaul required updating history which meant wiring, plumbing, windows, roof and several walls. Brazilian teak floors replaced the original heart pine, white wainscoting accents the walls, and the kitchen features white bead board cabinets and solid quartz counter tops embellished with Delft tiles with ox-head corner motifs, circa 1650. The living room fireplace retains the original 1925 fireplace mantle and has been updated and enhanced with vibrant blue and yellow, hand-painted Spanish tiles from Santa Fe. A large master suite spans the back of the cottage and looks out upon an enchanting backyard... surrounded by areca palms for privacy and interspersed with with mangoes. A beautiful, large, heated saltwater pool and spa truly create this private oasis. A storybook house complete with cedar shake siding, white gable supports, cozy, whimsical furnishings and accessories, and a white picket fence. ROR zoning, location and charm and offered turn-key furnished, less personal exceptions.*Listing provided courtesy of the MLS.
