You wake up Monday morning, and instead of having a 45 minute drive to work, now it's only 10. In the heart of Seminole Heights, your home is a short drive to Downtown and all the cool restaurants and breweries that everyone keeps talking about. You use that extra time to enjoy a cup of coffee in your kitchen-the Pinterest kitchen you always pictured with subway tile, light shaker cabinets, and granite counters with grays and light neutrals swirling through it. The bright kitchen contrasts with the dark wood flooring that gives it a look of elegance and drama. You look out the front windows as the natural morning light streams in and enjoy the view of the quiet park (a rare find in an urban neighborhood). This house is the perfect size for you: you didn't want a home so big that it was too much to take care of, but you love that the open floorplan and high ceilings make it feel so much bigger! It's great when you have friends over, as they spill over from the living room to the kitchen, right out the French doors to the backyard and lanai. It's been so helpful to have a garage and closet space, which you learned is hard to come by in these old homes. You find that you love being home-all the renovations have been done, so you don't have to worry about spending weekends doing projects. You get to enjoy the Heights lifestyle on the weekends, going to the Seminole Heights Market, brunch at Ella's, or grabbing a beer at 7th Sun Brewery. You got into the perfect house at the right time.
