115 S Spring Blvd Tarpon Springs, FL 34689

Okay we all know my million plus dollar house rule right?
I usually avoid them because the typical owner mucks up the insides with updating and modernizing.
This is a beautiful home and the owners seem to have understood that she's gorgeous as she is and have done a lovely job of marrying past and present.

115 S Spring Blvd Tarpon Springs, FL 34689
4 Beds 2.5 Baths 4,780 Sq Ft

Originally built in 1885 by Edwin H. Knapp, one of the founding fathers of Tarpon Springs, this historical landmark has stunning craftsmanship from an era featuring quality that we will likely never see again. Artisan woodwork throughout the home and beautiful wood trim grace the exterior. Aside from all its historical significance and grand architecture, at the heart, it's truly a family home, lovingly upgraded and remodeled over the years with lots of modern comforts but still holds true to its past. From the ornate wrought iron fencing, up to the wrap-around porch, you're welcomed into the Formal Living and Dining Rooms which share a beautifully crafted, double-sided fireplace. The family sized Kitchen has two pantries, a 12 ft. island, built-in desk and a cozy breakfast nook and an expansive Great Room complete with stunning views of Spring Bayou. The second and third floors hold four bedrooms, a second Family Room, loft area, unique nooks & spaces, a rooftop aerie and more! There are so many fabulous features and extraordinary architectural details to this elegant Victorian Lady.
