Immerse yourself in the rich history and timeless elegance of this meticulously renovated historic home located in the heart of Point Pleasant in downtown Bradenton. This distinguished two-story, 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom American Four Square home offers a harmonious blend of classic architectural charm and contemporary luxury. Originally built in 1913, the Betts House stands as a testament to Bradenton's storied past, with every detail meticulously preserved and enhanced for modern living. The newly landscaped front yard leads to the inviting, large wrap-around porch evoking a sense of nostalgia, reminiscent of days gone by. The grand living area has the original leaded windows with a fireplace and leads to both the family room and kitchen. The spacious family room has impact windows and a convenient full bath with the stairway leading to the four bedrooms and four additional baths. The remodeled kitchen and dining area is an open and inviting space overlooking the side yard. Crafted with care, the kitchen features impact windows, KraftMaid cabinetry, new LG appliances, a Bosch paneled dishwasher, exquisite butcher block counters, and complemented by an island topped with Dekton Entzo quartz. The large dining area still has the vintage leaded windows and leads to the impressive added butler's pantry that was formerly a side porch. It offers a wine refrigerator, two refrigerated drink drawers, a sink, and additional cabinetry also with Dekton Entzo quart. This area offers a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor entertaining. Once upstairs, you will find three bedrooms with three remodeled ensuite baths and a fourth bedroom serviced by an updated hall bath. The added primary bath has a spacious walk-in shower, dual vanities, and a private water closet. Step outside and discover a private oasis, complete with a composite side deck, rebuilt back porch, and a partially submerged 15'x8'x5' dual swim jet lighted Swim Spa. Practice your putting skills on the professionally installed 4-hole putting green, surrounded by lush artificial turf and expertly landscaped gardens. After a busy day, relax by the gas fire pit or rinse off in the outdoor shower before your resistance swim. Enjoy privacy with new bamboo fencing and landscape lighting, while the addition of string lighting illuminates the side yard for enchanting evenings under the stars. Thoughtful updates include a new roof in 2022, a replacement of the upstairs HVAC unit in 2023, 16 new impact windows, and a complete refinished and staining of wood floors, stairway, and handrails. In addition, the interior has been freshly painted and has new light fixtures and new window treatments throughout. Perfectly situated a very short distance from historic Old Main Street with its charming shops, bars, and restaurants as well as the marina, Manatee River, and the Riverwalk. The Betts House offers unparalleled access to the best of Bradenton's waterfront living. Experience the perfect harmony of history and modern comforts by discovering the timeless allure of this exceptional residence.
