Property Description

Welcome to this gorgeous historic home in the original City of Bradenton and settlement in Manatee county which is now highly sought after. Built by the son of the first Anglo-American settler, Josiah Gates. This lovely home has been painstakingly renovated into a modern home while preserving much of the historical charm, reusing and refinishing the original wood throughout. When you arrive you will be greeted by a covered front porch with new Trex style flooring and ceiling fans. As you enter, you will love the soaring ceilings and beautifully restored wood flooring. In this era, the double sided fireplace was not only used for keeping the house warm but also for cooking. Taxes say it was built in 1883 but family and historians say 1874 making it one of, if not the oldest livable homes in Manatee. What is new you ask? HVAC system and condenser units (2) plus ductwork, tankless water heater, roof, gutters, electrical, plumbing, lighting fixtures and ceiling fans, kitchen, bathrooms, entry doors, all flooring except restored hardwood floors, paver driveway, fresh paint inside and out...the list goes on! The kitchen has new cabinets, high end appliances, quartz countertops and tile backsplash. The bathrooms have new everything except the clawfoot tub in the main floor bathroom. Situated on a double lot with mature landscaping and newly planted palms and other plants. Sitting on approximately 1/2 acre. 3 Lots The yard is a blank slate with Plenty of room for a pool and to make your outdoor sanctuary. No HOA and plenty of room for a boat or RV. This 4 bedroom and 3 full bath home is conveniently located 3 blocks from Mineral Springs Park which is the start of the extended Riverwalk that expands to downtown Bradenton. Only 1.5 blocks from the Manatee River (yet NOT in a flood zone so no flood insurance needed)! Manatee hospital, restaurants, bars are a few blocks away, and the beautiful gulf beaches of Anna Maria Island are just 15 minutes away. This area is being revitalized with brand new construction and renovations of the beautiful old houses. Besides being a fabulous home, it could also be a great Airbnb. Earlier owners wanted to make it a Bed and Breakfast until medical issues stopped them. Taxes say 2 bed 1 bath but that is incorrect and hasn't been that way for many many years.
