Sunken – very midcentury, as is the room-dividing planter with white wrought-iron pillar.
It gets a lot of wonderful natural light through the bank of windows across the back of it. All windows in the house are insulated double-hung aluminum-frame windows that were installed in the 1980s. The original windows were crank-out awning style that were not energy-efficient or secure; these are a huge improvement. Beautiful view of the back garden through these windows, as well.
Draperies and traverse rods do convey, but they’re old and will need replacing.
There are 5 electrical outlets in this room: two on each side wall and one in the center of the back wall. The outlet closest to the kitchen is controlled by the light switch on the wall by the door to the kitchen. There is no overhead light fixture in this room.
Imagine the living room with the bank of windows replaced by glass doors leading out to a beautiful patio/pool area!
Room measurements: 10 x 10 feet
Front door was installed in about 1997. It is supposed to be solid mahogany, and has a narrow arched leaded glass insert.
The storm door has a tint installed on it to protect the wood door from sun damage in winter, when the front porch gets full sun for much of the day.
Flooring is wall-to-wall carpet over concrete.
There are three electrical outlets in this room: one on each wall.
Window coverings are just simple silk curtains with sheers on a fancy rod; if the buyers want them they’ll convey, but if they don’t, I’ll take them. Same with the chandelier.
The chandelier is on a dimmer switch located on the switch next to the front door. The other switch on that panel controls the front porch light.
Measurements: 10 x 15.5 feet
Ceramic tile flooring was installed in 2003 and is set on the diagonal. Great pattern that doesn’t show dirt! The grout is tinted to match the tile.
Plenty of cabinets! Upper: 2 large, 5 medium, 2 narrow, & 4 small. Lower: 9 full-size & 2 narrow. 7 full-size drawers & 2 narrow. The cabinetry is solid wood, much better quality than those made today. Pulls on the drawers & cabinets are copper. The cabinets are original to the house, which was built in 1958.
Formica countertops and backsplash were installed in the early 1970s.
Stainless-steel KitchenAid wall oven was installed around 2001.
Stainless-steel Westinghouse electric cooktop was installed in the early 1970s. Two eyes on it will only work on high; the other two work fine.
Maytag dishwasher was installed sometime in the 1980s. It works fine.
Side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator was new around 2008.
There are three electrical outlets in this room: one where the under-cabinet lighting is plugged in over the countertop, one where the refrigerator is plugged in, and one on the wall opposite it. The light switch to the right of the sink controls the light above the sink. There is no garbage disposal.
Overhead lighting is two fluorescent fixtures installed in the early 2000s; they’re not great, but are better than what was there before. The under-cabinet light is one I installed in 1996 to give better light on the work surface.
Imagine this room with skylights!
Room measurements: 9 x 20 feet
Walls in this room are plywood paneling.
Flooring is wall-to-wall carpet over concrete, and possibly some remnants of the original vinyl flooring that was installed in here.
Lots of nice natural light from the bank of windows across the back, and the glass-block window to the right of them. The windows provide a beautiful view of the lush back garden and live oak tree.
Pleated shades on the windows convey. If the buyers want the window treatments, I’ll leave them, as well.
Noted feature: built-in shelves the perfect depth to hold CDs or paperback books. These were installed where a jalousie door used to lead to the garage when this room was but a screened porch on the back of the house.
There are at least 5 electrical outlets in this room: two on the back wall, two on the other long wall, and one on the wall on the west end of the room. There may be an additional one on the wall behind the large armoire holding the TV, but it’s been there so long that I’m not sure!
If the buyer wants the low shelves along the west wall of this room, I’ll also leave those; they’re made out of the same paneling that’s on the walls of the room.
Envision this room bumped out a bit to the back, with a bank of doors leading out to the pool/patio area!
Measurements: 3.38 x 12.42 feet
Flooring is wood parquet installed in the late 1960s, when my parents bought the house.
Electrical switchbox for the house is located on the wall here and was installed in 2009. It is large enough to hold additional switches for any additions the buyers would like to make to the house.
There is a door behind the door to the dining room that used to hold the heater for the house, before it had central AC. I now use it as a storage closet. It’s also the return conduit for the HVAC unit, but as long as you leave enough room for the air to come through the grate, there’s plenty of nice storage room in it.
There’s also a nice deep linen closet at the end of the hallway.
There are no electrical outlets in the hallway. The light switch on the wall controls the overhead light.
This is the larger of the two bathrooms in the house. All pink and blue-gray tile is original from 1958!
Most striking feature: large skylight that lets in the sun so you never have to turn on the light in the daytime and there’s never a problem with mildew in this bathroom.
Wall-mounted pink lavatory with original fixtures.
Pink bathtub with original faucet and handles; the hand-held showerhead was a replacement. According to a plumber hired to unclog the drain, the trap in the drain for this tub needs replacement, which will require digging through the foundation of the house to access.
Kohler toilet was replaced in about the early 1990s. (I assume that pink toilets were not easy to come by at that time, but the original toilet in here was pink.)
There is no electrical outlet in this bathroom. Any Brits who view the house will feel right at home!
Lighting over the mirror was installed in the late 1990s It is controlled by the light switch on the wall inside the tile. The light switch above it controls the exhaust fan in this bathroom.
The gold frame around the medicine cabinet mirror is attached with magnets to it; if the buyer wants that, it can convey.
Measurements: 12 x 14 feet
Flooring is wood parquet installed in the 1960s when my parents bought the house.
Lots of nice natural light from the windows across the front. Venetian blinds in those windows do convey. Also a small high window on the east side with mint green Venetian blinds that also convey.
The closet in this room is not walk-in, but extends across that full wall of the room, so it’s quite large. It features a metal hanging rod with shelf above that are original to the house.
Ceiling fan conveys, although I’ll replace the art-glass pull on it now with the one that came with the fan.
There are 5 electrical outlets in this room: one next to the door to the hallway, one on the east wall behind the bookshelves, one on each end of the front wall, and another on the closet wall just behind the wood cabinet.
Measurements: 6 x 7 feet
This bathroom has a shower stall, no tub. Shower handles are original to the house, but the hand-held showerhead is a replacement.
Wall-mounted lavatory with original fixtures.
This toilet is original to the house and matches the lavatory!
Glass in the window is frosted for privacy. Plantation shutters on the window convey.
If the buyer wants it, I’ll also leave the frame attached with magnets to this medicine cabinet mirror above the lavatory.
This bathroom does have an electrical outlet, just above the tile. The light switch next to the outlet controls the exhaust fan in the bathroom, and the one built into the tile controls the light above the mirror, which was installed in the late 1990s.
The electric heater built into the front wall of this bathroom no longer works.
Measurements: 10 x 15.5 feet
Flooring: engineered hardwood planks installed in 2013.
Two large windows on the back wall provide a lovely view of the back garden when shutters are open, plus a small upper window on the east wall.
This room features plantation shutters that convey.
Largest closet in any of the bedrooms is in this one. Although not walk-in, it extends the entire length of that end of the room.
There are 6 electrical outlets in this room: one on each of the shorter walls and 2 on each of the longer walls. There’s also an overhead light controlled by the light switch.
Measurements: 12 x 11 feet
Forgive the clutter; this is my storage room in addition to the guest room!
Flooring is wood parquet installed in the late 1960s.
Double windows on the back wall provide a lovely view of the lush back garden.
A nice-sized closet on the opposite wall. Although the smallest of the 3 closets, it’s still a good size.
Windows have mint green metal Venetian blinds that convey.
Garage, HVAC, & Utility Room
2-car garage with entry to kitchen.
Electric garage door opener with button to operate it next to door into kitchen. The remotes for it no longer work, but most cars these days have a button in them you can program for your garage door.
Windows in the garage door plus a window on the west wall of the garage provide plenty of natural light in the daytime.
Plenty of room along the wall closest to the kitchen for storage cabinets, and a little alcove where the AC ductwork goes into the house that’s also great for storage.
Above the garage door on the outside is a motion-sensor floodlight.
The closet in the garage closest to the kitchen houses the Florida Heat Pump water-to-air HVAC unit. It was new in about 2007 and these units tend to have about a 15-year lifespan since they don’t sit out in the salt air. There are 3 zones on which the sprinklers outputting the water for this unit can be moved. I tend to leave them on the back ones. Controls for these are on the outside of this room, on the back of the house.
The other door is to the utility room. This room houses the washer/dryer, water heater, and pumps for the two wells that power the irrigation system and HVAC unit. I also keep my extra refrigerator there for holding overflow food for parties and holidays. The control panel for the Rainbird irrigation system is also in this room. It was replaced in about 2013. The tank for the pump controlling the HVAC system was replaced in 2014.
There is a wooden workbench built into this room with a metal vise that was my father’s. There is a window above the workbench to provide nice natural light.
The two light switches inside the door to the utility room can be confusing; the upper one controls the overhead light in that room; the lower one controls the floodlight outside the garage.
There is some attic storage above the utility room. There are no pull-down stairs for it; we always just use a ladder.
