About 5918 Sw 13th Street

Welcome to "Serenola," a captivating revival of the past nestled within the tranquility of a 9.27-acre property. This historical gem, originally dating back to 1935, was meticulously relocated from a plantation to its current location in 2006, undergoing an extensive renovation that seamlessly blends classic charm with modern amenities. The journey begins as you pass through the elegant electric gate, securing the property enclosed within a brick wall. The grandeur of Serenola unfolds with a majestic front porch adorned with gas lanterns, leading you into the formal living area. Original features such as heart pine floors, siding, moldings, and two fireplaces evoke a sense of timeless beauty, enhanced by the inclusion of plantation shutters. The heart of this masterpiece lies in its kitchen – a haven for culinary enthusiasts. Leathered granite counters complement a double 8-burner gas range with a pot filler, a Viking refrigerator, two dishwashers, a warming drawer, and a spacious pantry. The ambiance seamlessly transitions to the large formal dining area, setting the stage for exquisite gatherings. A recent addition to the property, the grand-sized family room offers a contemporary touch to the residence. Upstairs, the master suite awaits, featuring a fireplace, a large modern bath, and a generously-sized closet. Two additional guest rooms share a hall bath, while a third boasts an en-suite bath, ensuring comfort and convenience for all. Beyond the enchanting interior lies the vast 40 x 60 metal outbuilding with air conditioning – a versatile space perfect for a workshop, boat, car, or RV storage. As a testament to its historical significance, the property features an awe-inspiring 50,000-gallon salt pool/spa with a lap lane, surrounded by brick pavers salvaged from the old Burrito Brothers. Serenola is not just a home; it is a living testament to the harmonious coexistence of history and modernity. Immerse yourself in the rich legacy of this 1935 residence, where every detail tells a story, and every corner is infused with timeless allure. This is more than a property; it is a sanctuary, an embodiment of past and present, waiting for you to call it home.
