Property Description

Welcome to the Mermaid House. True Coastal living in a unique architectural designed home on the water. This quiet hidden street is truly the last street in Tarpon Springs. Osprey, Eagles and Owls, will be your new friends. Surrounded by Gulf waters, this stilt home survives all storms high above the ground. Located on almost an acre of property with a detached 2 car garage, there is room to park almost anything. This 3 bed 3 bath home is ready to move in. All new appliances with new smart TV’s and WiFi controlled thermostat are included with the home. Everything is freshly painted. The front porch measures 13 X 23 , a separate side porch and rear decking wraps around the back. A new forever metal roof with Solar panels is only 3 years old and is covered by a 30 year warranty on the panels. With moderation the power bill on average is $50. a month, water $100. Both A/C units are less than 4 years old. Real wood floors adorn the house with tile in the kitchen and bathrooms and new carpet in the spare bedrooms. The oversized “basement”, is finished as a possible rec room or office. Shiplap siding is decorated throughout the living room with a wood or gas burning fireplace and original stained glass. The oversized pool is the highlight of the Summer. Freshly painted with a new variable speed pump keeps it quiet and efficient. The fenced back yard can contain most animals. The grandfathered in, original dock is 16X10 with an included floating 12 X 12 wave runner dock. Also there is a ramp into the water for launching a small flats boat or kayaks. This non HOA street is friendly and inviting and gives you the freedom to breathe. Tarpon Springs is full of life & activity including beautiful beaches, parks, festivals, arts, concerts, wonderful shops & restaurants as well as the paved Pinellas trail w/ access to over 50 miles of paved trails & SO MUCH MORE!
