This recently renovated home is truly unique to the standard designs of the Freeport homes of this era. Built in 1975 this home was built to be part of a similarly built small community of homes dubbed Continental Park. The roof has an incline of 15degrees, discouraging any water accumulation and the owner has recently installed some tongue 'n groove soffit and louvered vents allowing for adequate roof ventilation.
Each home was built with its neighbour's privacy in mind. The homes are built to imitate the unique 'shotgun' style but with a twist. The floor plan is actually in the shape of an L, with a large, partially covered and screened outdoor entertainment area. It is the perfect place for a secure playground for the children and certainly large enough to have a banquet style table for entertaining family and friends. This home offers a lovely lush tropical garden and is secured all the way around. No unwanted visitors here- be they 2 or 4 legged.
The absolute beauty of this home and the others sitting on the 4 acre Continental Park community is the secret interior 1 acre parkland. Hidden from the view of anyone driving or even walking past, is a lush, manicured, mature tree parkland with a large pool. Each home has its own garden gate to this very private oasis. Your own Secret Garden.
This home is offered furnished and with the soft furnishing. The largest bedroom is the master found at the rear of the home with a large walk through closet and dressing area through to the bathroom. The two other bedrooms are closer to the living room and although smaller each have their own patio doors to the outside. Now I know you are thinking who pays for all of this privacy? Well there is a Homeowners Association and each owner contribute only $500/quarter which covers all of the gardening- within your walled space as well as the interior parkland, pool and associated liability insurance.
Another of the unique features is the fact that the garage is attached to the house, so once you enter the garage, close the door you walk through in privacy into the foyer of the home. This foyer offers not only a window entrance to the kitchen, but you can sit back and relax in privacy of the cozy sitting room. Once you enter the house proper, you are greeted by the wide terra cotta tiled living room overlooking that spacious outdoor screened room. Don't worry, you will feel more than protected by the surrounding hurricane impact doors and windows. Wait! there is more ... The owners have thoughtfully installed a generator tucked into its own covered niche to protect it from the elements as well a separate air conditioning units. Similar sized homes in the area do not offer any of the amenities and homes with these amenities are asking far more just for their location. You are a quick 10 minute walk to the beach and nearby Running Mon Marina.
This lovely home is offered, ready to move in for only $238,000.00.
