SNELL ISLE TROPICAL RETREAT: This classic Florida ranch has been carefully updated and expanded over the years, yet retains its distinctive mid-century vibe. And you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much space awaits inside and outside. The house has an open living and dining room with wood-burning fireplace. Kitchen has been updated and expanded and includes an eat-in area. The room off the kitchen can be used for an office or a bedroom. A key feature of this house is its oversized lot (84 x 150 feet) with a tropical, resort-like feel around the large pool. The yard includes a circular drive and offers several areas that can be converted to entertaining zones such as fire pits or playground areas. A covered lanai has its own half-bath and generous space that’s perfect for poolside parties or as a play space. Green features include a gas water heater, a whole house filtration system for the air conditioning and an in-ground sprinkler system that uses reclaimed water. The location is just a block and a half from Coffepot Bayou, with its frolicking dolphins and manatees, and a walking trail that leads over the historic Snell Isle Bridge all the way to downtown St. Pete.
