1523 1St Ave W Bradenton, FL, United States

Pairing with the historical charm of Bradenton, this timeless 1920s restored home is a nod to a bygone era with all the comforts of today. Remarkable craftsmanship that is nearly impossible to find, character that tells a story of decades, and recent improvements meeting discerning tastes and needs set this residence above the rest. Known as The Betts House, built in 1913 by the Betts Family who seasonally resided in Bradenton as a fruit broker, the home was constructed in the style of American Standard, featuring sleeper porches and adored in the classic sea-green art deco of the times. Restorations began in 1989 under new ownership until 1999 when it was completely modernized by another owner. Now, it has again been revitalized and refreshed to today’s expectations while appreciating its rich past. The freshly painted exterior marries with the delightful curb appeal of Florida native landscaping and a beautiful, new beach pebble walkway, granting a sense of Americana appreciation with the fabulous front porch meant for rocking chairs and sipping lemonade. Once inside, the gracious two-story floorplan spans 3,500 square feet for entertaining and family-focused gathering with a family room and separate formal dining and living rooms, adorned with high ceilings capped in crowned molding, broad windows for an abundance of natural light, new tile floors, and horsehair plaster walls. Three Chicago-brick wood-burning fireplaces enhance varied rooms lending to the classic charisma of the home. The kitchen is a desirable, ample size with plenty of cabinetry and countertop space. Three guest bedrooms and a master suite provide domains for the entire family while allowing versatility to meet the preferences of any lifestyle. Upstairs, you find a sleeper porch that offers a wonderful view of the property and city surroundings. Energy-efficient and future-minded, this home is solar powered to conserve energy and lower utility costs. There is also a tankless water heater, and the yard is large enough to add a pool. Enjoy strolls to the local library and partake in downtown Bradenton’s nightlife for entertainment, dining, shopping and more.
