This beautifully renovated home is located in a lovely neighborhood just a short walk from downtown Delray. Yet it is still a peaceful oasis with a gorgeous lap pool which stretches the length of the yard. There is a stylish outdoor living room, deck and patio for enjoying quiet breakfasts, swimming parties and glowing evening light with a view of a giant Banyan tree. A new grill (with extra gas canister) completes the picture. The house is fashionably designed with up - to - the minute appliances in the kitchen, stage like lighting and dramatic sliding doors with motorized shades. We entertained at both the granite counter island and the glass topped dining table. The laundry room has brand new high tech front loading washing machine and dryer. Five late model televisions are located throughout the house with a large smart TV in the sitting area. There is a fabulous spa like bathroom with a luxurious walk in closet off the romantic master bedroom. It has floor to ceiling windows with wooden blinds, a ceiling fan and sinfully comfortable king-sized bed. A modestly appointed second bedroom with its own lovely bath and sitting room makes the space a good option for friends sharing or families with a teenager. There is a well ordered two car garage and biweekly trash and recycling pickup. The house is an easy walk to the Pineapple Grove area of town with its own subculture of cafes, restaurants and shops. Busy Atlantic Avenue is just a few blocks beyond. We enjoyed our strolls out to dinner, brunch and shopping. There is always something going on there. We never had to use the convenient Downtowner service but it will come to the house. We also liked to drive to the local beach on Ocean Avenue, park our car on the street and drop a few quarters in the meter to enjoy a shoreline walk. For the more energetic, it’s also possible to walk or bike to the beach. The neighborhood is friendly and great for walking and jogging. It is in a part of town where residents are purchasing and renovating classic Florida bungalows (like this one) so there is always something interesting to look at. Though the home is located near some major thoroughfares (which is very convenient for driving), it never feels loud or full of traffic.
The owner is open, enthusiastic and carefully organized the space for our comfort and enjoyment. She is knowledgable about the area and cheerfully answered all of our questions. She made a first Airbnb experience a great one. We look forward to seeing all the creative new design ideas she comes up with for the house in the future!
