Mid-century modern home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, pool and 2 -car garage. Approx. 2350 sf under air (ca. 219 m2), built in 1955.
This is a lovely project in search of love and TLC: originally a mid-century modern home with shed roof and vaulted beamed ceilings, previous owners have tried to turn what could be a modernist gem into something definitely NOT modern. Luckily, most of their attempts are cosmetic and "glue-ons", and can probably easily be removed. The house, with a two car-garage and laundry room, is located on a large corner lot, in a quiet and much sought-after residential area with great appreciation in the past. It is close to a marina and inlet, the beach, shopping and I-95. The home offers a newer (not modern) solid-wood kitchen with granite counter-tops, marble through-out including the bathroom walls, and two fireplaces. A covered patio and wood deck overlook a secluded, tropical pool. The spacious lot offers room to roam for children and pets, and possibly also to expand the house. # 1274, asking $599,000 ($255/sf or $2,771/m2). Request additional photos and information

Under contract/pending sale: property is in contract, but has not closed yet. If contract falls through, home will become available again. Until that time, showings are not possible.
Back-up Offer: like a above, but accepting "waiting list" offers. If the contract falls through, the seller can pick from the back-up offers already on the table, instead of starting from scratch. In such cases, offers with the least contingencies, especially those with no financing clauses, have the best chances. Showings are possible.
Short Sale: property will be sold for less than face value of the mortgage. The owner is the seller, but the lender has to agree to the contract. Short Sales typically now sell above asking.
