Unique, historic 1948 home on remarkable West Venice Avenue. This home has had only two owners and is in untouched, original condition. A transitional mid-century ranch, it features original oak and yellow pine floors, a working stone fireplace, original bathroom fixtures and original kitchen cabinetry. This 3-bedroom, one and a half bath home has generous bedrooms and closets, a walk-in pantry, large windows facing the beautifully landscaped linear park, and both a Florida Room and a corner porch, each with terra cotta tile floors. The house is exceptionally well-built. Unlike later ranches with plumbing buried in concrete, this home is built with a full crawlspace that allows ready access to all plumbing. It has its original two-car garage, with one side closed in as a laundry and bonus room—easily converted back to a full, two-car space. The house is positioned on a generous corner lot and is configured so that a master suite addition could transform it into a lovely courtyard home. The interior of this home must be seen to be fully appreciated. In the heart of the most desirable section of ‘the island, ’ as locals refer to it, the public beach and pavilion are one block west. Venice’s charming downtown with its shops, restaurants, tennis courts and nationally recognized community theatre is two blocks to the east. Anyone who has visited Venice knows that this iconic street, with its hundred-year-old live oaks, is unsurpassed in beauty and charm. This property is one of the last remaining examples of an unaltered, ‘old Florida’ home. This home has been placed on the Local Register of Historic Resources—meaning it cannot be demolished and must retain its original exterior features. There is no approval needed for interior changes. Complete information is included with the listing.
