Property Description 219 S Glen Arven Avenue, Temple Terrace, FL 33617
This 1926 Mediterranean Revival exhibits old world charm with new home conveniences. She underwent a full year renovation, down to the bare bones and has been lovingly renovated by the current owners, leaving nothing but a pleasurable experience and your personal touches to be added. A stunning home in a beautiful location overlooking the 7th fairway of the Historic Temple Terrace Golf Course and the woods that border the Hillsborough River. A truly tranquil setting from which to relax on one of the many porches and sip your morning coffee, or evening beverage, while watching the golfers…and other wildlife at play. The open floor plan is great for entertaining. The kitchen, family room and formal dining room all flow together and out to a covered screened room that allows for large gatherings without crowding. The kitchen is a chef’s delight with creamy raised panel cabinets, gorgeous granite and, of course, Frigidaire Professional series stainless appliances. There is an additional paved patio for grilling. The formal living area has a dramatic view of the staircase, the rebuilt fireplace and a home office tucked off to the side with a beaded wood ceiling (also with great views of the course). Original gleaming hardwood floors throughout the home, with travertine in the family room, office, kitchen & utility room, vintage tiles in the baths, and beautiful Cuban tile on the entry porch and the screen porch off the dining room. The bedrooms are all upstairs but separated from the primary bedroom by a long hall, sitting room/office and full bath. The secondary bedrooms also have a private patio…your guests may never leave! The master bedroom has a balcony that runs the width of the home, which overlooks the golf course, a fabulous walk-in closet with built-ins, a working fireplace, a black and white bath with leather finished granite counters and a large walk-in shower. With multiple French doors and windows, the home is filled with natural light at all hours of the day and has an abundance of storage throughout, as well as a detached 2½ car garage with plenty of room for those bikes and kayaks! The circular paver brick driveway allows plenty of extra parking for guests. The oversized nicely landscaped property gives one privacy and a sense of country with a friendly neighborhood feel. When touring, be sure to notice the restored 1920’s light fixtures & crystal doorknobs. Easy access to the Temple Terrace Golf and Country Club by way of under-street golf cart/pedestrian paths beneath Bullard Parkway. Also close to schools, the public library, parks (one with a public boat ramp to the Hillsborough River), and the TT Rec Center. Minutes from USF, Moffitt, AdventHealth and the VA hospital plus all the surrounding medical facilities, I-75, I-275, I-4 and the Crosstown Expressway. A complimentary 3-month social membership to the TTG&CC is offered to new homeowners.
