One of South Tampa's Historical Hidden Gems! This home was built in 1898 and has a tremendous amount of local history and folklore to it! Local legend has it that Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders stayed at this home prior to leaving for the Spanish American War! This home is located in Port Tampa and walking distance to the old Port that over 30,000 American Forces embarked on ships to head to Cuba. The neighborhood has so many older colonial and bungalow style homes to complicate this beauty. This home is HUGE! It starts with an authentic wrap around porch, ideal for sitting outside on a nice Florida day. Once you enter, you are greeted with a classic staircase that leads upstairs to a few bedrooms. Downstairs is complimented with 2 bedrooms 2 living rooms and 2 dining rooms! Marvel at some of the early 1900's architecture while your tour this home. This home is one of a kind and nothing else in Tampa is quite like it. If you would like to own a piece of South Tampa history, the sky is the limits of ideas and opportunities you can do with this home. Many have suggested a Port Tampa Bed and Breakfast, a community home for Veterans. Even more simply, a place to set some roots down and enjoy the old world brick paved roads, close distance to Picnic Island Park, West Shore Marina District, and Tampa's Favorite Waterside American Legion.
