A Truly unique property, in that extensive care and upkeep were constantly maintained, both to its exterior as well as interior. Originally Built in 1977 as a two bedroom, its use has been extended to accommodate a large family unit where, necessity being the mother of invention to accommodate the needs of a growing family, significant upgrade improvements have taken place in every part of the house including newly installed windows and tile flooring together with modern sheet-rock replacement to every bedroom wall throughout the house. Indeed, as when the need for more living space out-trumps the automobile, the garage for one was converted into a very large bedroom cum family room with three large bay windows facing the two expansive oak trees overlooking the entire front yard. Overall, these improvements have added actual living space to what now consists of around 2700 sq ft. Similarly, the backyard Florida room was also divided into two separate rooms or studios completely enclosed with a half-dozen retractable windows for backyard viewing a spot that shares natures coolness from the numerous trees and natural fauna, unique to this area where expensive newly built housing developments have sprouted, however lacking any desirable landscaping that will require many years, especially full-grown trees, to develop. It should be noted this popular spot of the house is easily re-converted into a totally glassed-in Florida room if desired with the installation of a sliding wall that separates the two rooms. There is double fencing surrounding the backyard a chain link fence that was purposely left along-side, adjacent to the 6 ft wooden fencing providing extra safety and privacy throughout.

Kitchen cum Dining RoomThe kitchen and dining room, most always considered central to any modern house, are conducive to both entertainment and serving family meals conveniently, as well as, with maximum efficiency and, by virtue of its centrality, leads to all parts of the house, where east meets west and north gives way to the south. The cooking area projects a bar type counter where families sometimes prefer a less formal sit down as opposed to the dining table, both of which this large area provides. The entire cabinetry has been refurbished including tile flooring throughout. Unique LandscapingExteriorly, this family friendly property spreads its garden-like environment throughout its nearly acres where, at last count there were some 24 full grown trees, which combined form a natural rainforest-like canopy providing cool shade to almost the entire back and front yards as an integral part within this quiet, safe neighborhood of Brandon, Florida. As-Is RecommendationsWhile the new roofing was recently installed and is less than 2 years old, it remains in excellent condition, however, the central air conditioning unit located in the attic, was upgraded on two different occasions, additionally extended to the new additions, and may require improvement. Additionally, the property was never converted to city sewerage as should have been when originally built, and continues to utilize a septic tank, drain-line system, which requires refurbishing every so often. While the a city sewerage pipe follows the back yard property, bordering it and other properties on this street, should each be connected, a point of contention with possible potential for that reality should the neighborhood collectively make the city aware of such demands. At last consideration, a neighborhood, joint law suit may be in the cards. Meanwhile, it is recommended a reconstituted drain line be implemented until he line is connected to city sewerage.
