Description

Nestled in the heart of Dean Park, Fort Myers only neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places, this charming 1920's Craftsman Bungalow offers a perfect blend of history and community. Originally owned by former mayor Vernon Widerquist, this property is ideally situated at the pinnacle of the neighborhood, directly across from the delightful Triangle Park and at the corner of Rhode Island Ave and Providence St.While brimming with potential, this unique home awaits restoration to return to its full glory, requiring a new kitchen, electrical upgrades, and plaster wall repairs. It features a wealth of original details, including original heart pine hardwood floors, built-in cabinets, and original glass windows that flood the space with natural light. The residence is complemented by a spacious 360 sq ft guesthouse, boasting four rooms with brand-new amenities, including a kitchen, bathroom, and efficient mini-split air conditioners. The property includes a detached garage/workshop and benefits from recent significant upgrades: a new metal roof installed in 2021 with a 50-year lifespan, New ducting added in 2022, and New Foundation supports (helical piles) in 2023. Outdoors, the front and side yards hosts vibrant young mango trees, and the fenced backyard features a majestic 100-year-old oak tree, making it an ideal retreat for relaxation or entertaining.Living in Dean Park, youll enjoy a tight-knit community with regular social events, beautifully palm-lined sidewalks, and an atmosphere of belonging. This home represents a rare opportunity to own a piece of Fort Myers history in a location that is truly the best in the neighborhood. Sellers have a TRANSFERABLE FLOOD POLICY! Agents, please see remarks.
