Celebrating its mid-century roots, this spring green home lives larger than you might think at first and features a floor plan that has worked since day 1.

Exterior details include classic awnings with whimsical purple stripes over the front windows and a vintage mail slot still in use every day. Sheltered under a covered entry, the front door opens to a spacious living room illuminated by diffused natural light. All common rooms flow in a circle from this gathering room – dining room straight ahead, office/breakfast room to the left and a big galley kitchen that connects to the back patio. Original wood floors run throughout except for kitchen and baths – there’s nothing like this era of oak with its depth of grain. Every room is generously sized with multiple windows but my favorite is the office/casual dining room.

Tucked between the living room and kitchen, it has 2 walls of windows, making it cheerful even on a rainy day. Blond maple cabinets line the walls of the kitchen and there’s an abundance of counterspace for meal prep. Built-in pantry keeps everything organized and within easy reach and it’s just steps out to the back patio for grilling and outdoor dining. Dining room is adjacent to kitchen and then to the living room through a double opening.

Bedrooms 2 and 3 plus hall bath are off the dining room. Bedrooms flank a big bathroom with separate tub and shower. Linens are stored in a tall cabinet and the extended vanity has lots more welcome storage underneath. Ironing board cabinet and telephone niche are still located in the hall. Rear bedroom can handle a lot of furniture and it’s a sunny spot throughout the day. Middle bedroom is presently an office – a comfortable room no matter the use. There’s a door accessing the attached garage here and that’s where you’ll find the laundry equipment. Main bedroom and private bath are just off the front entry. Double window overlooking front yard is made private courtesy of the awning which also keeps afternoon light low. En-suite, this smaller bathroom offers a shower. Heading back to the kitchen and out the back door, there’s still the cottage and outdoor space to discover.

Patio runs along the back of the house so it’s a sheltered space and the yard is fully fenced so your 4-legged friends can safely run around. The cottage fronts the alleyway and has dedicated parking. Living, dining and kitchen run from front to back under a vaulted ceiling and there’s a wee screened porch at the rear. Separate bedroom has closet and small bathroom. Two window units heat and cool this cottage. Hard to find and rarely found in such good condition, this offering of main house and legal cottage is a sweet one.

It’s one block to the Boulevard where independent eateries, brewery, indie retail and other shops dot this “island main street” in both directions. Lined with sidewalks, you can walk or ride your bike to Anastasia State Park, home of the most beautiful beach and the Amp where you can check out amazing concerts along with our famous Saturday Farmer’s Market. The Boulevard is a destination in its own right, and it will take some time to explore every bit of it. A short hop over the bridge takes you downtown and you can do it without your car! Welcome to 408 and 408 1/2 Flagler Blvd – we think you’re going to like it here.
