RARE OPPORTUNITY IN CORTEZ. Spacious 3 Bed/3 Bath HOME, on 1/2 ACRE LOT, on a cul-de-sac, less than a mile from the beach, on a CANAL, with a BOAT SLIP, and shed. This classic vintage 2-story older block home has great bones. Built in 1966 and well cared for, the house is now ready for a refresh. Even though shag carpet is actually quite confortable, it's not really a thing these days, so the floors are ready for your updated finishes. Some of the bigger items have already been done-BRAND NEW ROOF (2024), BRAND NEW ELECTRICAL PANEL (2024), and NEWER AC (2020). The first floor has a living room, kitchen, separate dining room, large family room with a fireplace, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a utility/pantry room, and a 2 car garage. The upstairs has a large bedroom with an en suite bath and walk-in closet. With no HOA, there are so many options with this property. The 1/2 acre could be divided into 2 lots, each lot with a house. The requirement is 6000 SF of lot per single family home. The current house could be lived in as is or rented. The current home could be updated or torn down and a new home built. The boat slip originally was covered as a boathouse and the boathouse can be rebuilt as long as it's not larger than the house and meets setback requirements. The canal behind the house goes out to the intercoastal next to the Cortez Bridge, and then out to the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay, so it's ideal for the boating and fishing enthusiast. Location, location, location, close to the beach, retaurants, and shopping. Make your appointment today to see this unique property.
