Thomas Street, Delray Beach, Florida. On a quiet street, this fabulous, easily walkable location is just a block and a-half from the sugar-sand beach and a couple blocks from Atlantic Avenue’s vibrant shopping, dining, and entertainment in the historic downtown heart of this charming village-by-the-sea.
Hidden away behind leafy greenery, this authentic 1941 cottage has been tastefully renovated to create a charming seaside home that pairs modern comfort with the wonderful feel of Old Florida. Abundant palm trees and lush gardens add to the sense of relaxation in the backyard’s inviting tropical oasis, where the large swimming pool provides the centerpiece for the outdoor living/dining spaces featuring a lovely awning-covered terrace.
Original elements including tongue-and-groove-paneled ceilings contribute to the special character of this one-of-a-kind home, with its airy rooms grounded by floors finished in warm hardwood and terra cotta tile. Three bedrooms and three full baths are included in the total of 2,588± square feet which also has attached covered parking.
Set off by a beamed cathedral ceiling, the living room’s large gathering space features a cozy wood-burning fireplace as a focal point. This room flows into the L-shaped, window-walled family room which opens out to the pool terrace and is fitted with built-in bookcases and a cleverly concealed media cabinet. Also looking out on the pool and back garden, the dining room opens into the crisp white kitchen which includes a Sub-Zero refrigerator and is next to the laundry/utility room with full bath. Fitted with built-in bookcases, the inviting den/office opens its doors to the pool terrace. Another wing contains two bedrooms with cedar closets and a bath. Having complete privacy as the only space upstairs, the master bedroom suite takes in enchanting tree-top views above the pool and lush gardens. Three custom-fitted double closets accompany the master bath.
