Welcome to this historic gem of a home with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. This elevated home, built in 1943 is listed on the Sanibel Island Historic Register. The home is set on a sprawling acre sized, private lot that is across from the beach and backs up to the Rabbit Rd Preserve. The home feels timeless with inviting pine floors and cypress, bead board walls and ceilings. The fireplaced living room invites people to stay and visit and enjoy the breezes off the Gulf. Renovated in 2020, the kitchen and baths have contemporary functionality with old world charm. The mud room off the kitchen also serves as the laundry room with lots of cabinets and storage. There is an en-suite bedroom and bath on the first floor as well as a second, primary en-suite bedroom and bath on the second floor. Three additional bedrooms and a bath are on the second floor. The large pool is adjacent to the house. Words don’t do this property justice – you must see it!
