Description:

A favorite downtown residence in a coveted location, 139 Marine St has been an eye catcher for over a century. Presiding from its 1/4 acre corner location with 3 street frontages, the deliciously private backyard offers a most welcome pool to enjoy almost year round. A 550SF detached garage with storage loft and large pavered parking area are rarely found with homes from this era so expect a steady host of guests who’ll want to visit!

A true wraparound porch grabs your attention as you happily imagine starting each day with coffee, songbirds and the sunrise and ending it with the rising moon as you contemplate the next day’s adventure. In a city renowned for its rich array of architectural gems, this classic Frame Vernacular has preserved many original details and some fine turn-of-the-last century interior woodwork to present a timeless home well suited for today’s lifestyle wants, needs, furnishings and appointments. Stop to admire the front door and then come inside to see it all.

Generous foyer opens to generous living room on the left, library with gas fireplace on the right and the exquisite stairway straight ahead. An arched transition between foyer and kitchen has two hidden compartments in the panels. Dining room is adjacent to the huge kitchen which spills out to a covered deck and then on to the pool and patio. Unquestionably the heart of the house, there’s ample room for as many cooks as you can muster as you create the first of a long line of memorable meals. 1/2 bath with laundry closet is tucked in the corner with easy access to pool and a dedicated office is behind the kitchen. From here it’s out the side door and a few steps later you’re in the garage.

Upstairs, a comfortable family room is an ideal spot for your media arrangements – movie night every night! En-suite main bedroom is a welcome retreat with sitting area, walk-in closet, soaking tub, separate shower and double vanities. Step out to your private covered deck or head up to the lookout porch where you can see the Intracoastal across the street – exterior stair allows guests to all 3 levels of outdoor seating areas. 2 guest rooms share hall bath and you’ll not want for company!

Shadowbox fence around the backyard lets in light and the river breeze while keeping the pool nicely screened. You’d never know the heart of the city beats a mere 5 blocks away when you’re lounging at the pool or relaxing on the porch so you get the best of both. Welcome to your new life….
