THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY. This fabulous house was originally built in 1885 by Edwin H Knapp, one of the founding fathers of Tarpon Springs. This historical landmark also known as the 'CRESCENT HOUSE' is one of the most photographed home in Pinellas County and subject of many newspaper & magazine articles. Totally restored in 1978 by removing all the interior to the exterior walls, then putting in insulation, new wiring, plumbing, drywall and or plaster. You will enjoy stunning craftmanship from an era featuring quality that we will likely never see again. This home has 37 different hardwoods used throughout; Heartwood pine floors, burl pine & cypress wall/ceiling accents, just to mention a few which feature the artisan woodwork throughout the home and beautiful wood trim that grace the exterior. Aside from all its historical significance and grand architecture, at the heart, it's truly a family home, lovingly upgraded and remodeled over the years with lots of modern comforts but still holds true to its past. From the ornate wrought iron fencing, through the lush landscape, to the wrap around porch you're welcomed into the formal living and dining rooms which share a beautifully crafted, double sided fireplace. The huge family sized updated kitchen is any chefs dream. Featuring granite counters, loads of pull out soft close cabinets, upper lighted glass cabinets, a built in microwave and oven with a separate gas stove, a massive ten foot island with plenty of storage and bar stools, endless counter space, a farmhouse sink and a cozy breakfast nook. There is also an updated guest bathroom on this first floor, which is complimented with an expansive Great Room complete with stunning views of Spring Bayou. The second and third floors hold four bedrooms, a second family room, loft area, unique nooks and spaces, a rooftop aerie and much more!
