About 1214 East Park Circle
Presenting a once in a generation, secluded, quiet waterfront home perfectly situated to all Tampa and Seminole Heights has to offer. While the city of Tampa continues to grow and prosper, this home and garden are set in an established neighborhood with plenty of privacy. A double lot with 160 feet of improved waterfront make your options endless. Professionally designed gardens have been beautifully kept by a landscape architect and Master Gardener. Native tropical plants keep the growing easy. Trees provide lovely shade to keep you cool while enjoying your two butterfly gardens, bubbling water fountains, artwork and of course, beautiful views on the Hillsborough River. The grounds offer many places to entertain guests or relax on your own. Host a garden party in the dining patio overlooking the river or enjoy a moonlit dinner on the dock. There is a never ending parade of Florida’s most delightful wildlife, including manatees, dolphin and turtles. Birds fly above while you fish off your dock for snook and tarpon! This part of the river is an estuary and spawning ground for the fish of Tampa Bay as well as a sanctuary and nursery for manatees. The view upriver from the dock is an unobstructed 150 yards of greenery, sky and water. You can launch a kayak or paddleboard on the no wake, slow speed river. There is space for a boat lift should you desire....with Direct access to Tampa Bay!! The land side of the neighborhood is equally quiet and welcoming. Neighbors wave from their porches. Dog walkers and baby strollers are everywhere. It is easy to forget that you are only minutes from downtown, shopping, nightlife, and universities. Moving inside, the classic Florida cottage style, 2/2 home is well laid out and comfortable. You can see the river as soon as you walk through the front door. Red oak flooring and natural light welcome you home. The kitchen features solid wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and solid surface countertops. A cozy eat-in dining space has built in seating and storage, and overlooks the gardens and river. From the living room, large sliding doors open up to a spacious deck, expanding your entertaining area and living space. The family room is a place to relax while enjoying a fire in your gas fireplace. The large master bedroom is a private sanctuary to rest and rejuvenate while you dream up the next event to host in your new, beautiful oasis. The large storage shed looks like a mountain cabin tucked in the woods. There are recent roof and HVAC updates, Andersen windows and storm shutters. Flood prevention is provided by an upriver bypass canal. This classic riverfront home is a slice of paradise and a garden refuge in the middle of a thriving city. It is absolutely one of a kind, and true Florida living at its finest!
