Adam Carriero with Gulf Coast International Properties will host an open house on May 22nd, 2016 at 123 11th Avenue South in Old Naples. This is your chance to see a throwback to Naples in its youth. The home is described as "Periwinkle Cottage," featured in “Dream Houses: Historic Beach Homes and Cottages of Naples,” is located in the heart of the Old Naples historic district, just one block to the beach and three blocks to Third Street shops and restaurants. The original 1935 two-bedroom/two-bath cottage has been faithfully maintained and was updated in 2001 with impact windows, metal roof, and updated kitchen. The wide, classic closed-in front porch overlooks fruit trees and a broad lawn with a picket fence and opens inward to a beamed ceiling living room with fireplace and a den/library. A cozy dining area compliments the kitchen which overlooks a brick paver pool courtyard. There is also a separate laundry room and large AC storage room that could be an office or art studio. The back portion of this unique cottage was all-new in 2001 and features charming one-bedroom attached guest quarters with high beamed ceiling living room with fireplace, wainscoting, built-in seating, and a small kitchen. Plus there is a large guest bedroom over the garage. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to enjoy owning one of Old Naples’ most charming historic cottages.
I have been selling homes in Old Naples for over 18 years and this is one of the nicest beach cottages I have had the chance to view. 11th Avenue South is lined with beautiful homes many of them from the same period.
