This cozy home was totally remodeled and renovated in 2007. The kitchen is large and fully equipped, the dining room seats up to 10 and lends itself well to small parties that often flow out through the kitchen to the back patio. Ten folding lawn chairs, a portable fire pit, and a large table are available for use on the patio. The house is close to the hub of activities in Pensacola. Festivals, night clubs, churches, restaurants, the harbor, theaters are within walking distance, yet the neighborhood is quiet and family oriented.
The basement fitness room has balls, bands, a punching bag, two pieces of equipment and a large rocking horse for fun. There is an outdoor shower and changing area to enjoy on warm days.
The beds are very comfortable. The master bedroom has a small, private, sitting room/TV room. The second bedroom has the 2 twin beds and also houses the Internet connection and a TV. Though the house is not suitable for small children, those over 6 will enjoy this room and the toy basket in the living room as will as that huge rocking horse in the basement.
I grew up in the North Hill area of Pensacola where the house is located. I have lived in and renovated several of the houses in the area.. My husband is a veteran of World War II. The house has been our hobby for many years just for fun. It continues to be a labor of love.
My husband and I love the diversity of the neighborhood and the relaxed feel of the house.. We are members of the Pensacola Camellia Club and spend many winter hours walking the neighborhood enjoying the blooms. My son bought the house when it was very run down. He worked on it many years before we bought it from him to have a little vacation home in town.
The whole Victorian way of life seems to be alive and well in the neighborhood in the form of friendly neighbors,people sitting on porches, old fashioned neighborhood parks where residents gather.We like that the house is very close to the downtown area of Pensacola. It is a lovely walk to downtown and the restaurants and events there.
My husband enjoys TV in the back room while I like sitting in the living room rocking chair watching the neighbor's grandchildren play on the sidewalk across the street. The large dining room and the flow of the house is great for our family get togethers.
