Property Description

Standing since 1925, this home is a fortress! No damage sustained from Hurricane Ian, other than landscaping and a couple screens. Despite the proximity to the river, and a city owned canal just across the back yard, there was also NO flooding. Now is your chance to own a piece of Fort Myers history that has withstood the test of time and a Cat 5 Hurricane. Originally built in 1925 as a three-car garage, the property was once owned by Thomas Edison's Sister-in-Law, Author, Grace Miller Hitchcock. An unverified history of the home is available. Current owners consider themselves 'Custodians for a time' of this amazing property. With terrific attention to detail and a meticulous effort to combine modern convenience with 1925 art deco style and charm, they have completely breathed new life into this warm and welcoming home. A full list of the MANY improvements will be available in supplements and on site. The abridged version includes: Whole house replumbing and water system, rewiring w/ new boxes, New Cat 5 metal roof, new Cat 4 garage doors, resurfaced pool and pool pump, COMPLETE renovation of All three bathrooms and gorgeous new, open concept, island kitchen. Int & ext paint.
