Description

Located at the east end of the Historic Layafette Park, in view of the Apalachicola Bay, the home emulates the timeless elegance of Queen Anne Architecture. Built in 1895, known as the Alexander/Margaret Key home, named for the well known author & illustrator,Alexander Key,the current owners revived the name Villa Rosa, the name given to it in the 1920's.This distinguished residence has been lovingly brought back to it's former splendor. Step inside & you are greeted by the warmth of heart pine floors & cypress walls carefully stripped of their dark oxidized varnish through a delicate process involving air blasting with ground corncobs, sanding & the application of antique oil. As you wander through the rooms,you'll be captivated by the details of the 5 intricately tiled & carved fireplaces, each a masterpiece of Victorian craftsmanship. Ascend the astounding circular staircase to the 2nd level, where 4 bedrooms & 2 full baths await. Spend a few moments taking in the "writing room" where Alexander Key found inspiration for his timeless tales. Venture further up to the 3rd level, where a cozy living/bedroom area awaits, complete with a full bath & extra storage,offering a tranquil retreat. The efficient kitchen includes 2 Viking ovens, a built-in refrigerator (extra refrigerator located in the outside storage room), granite countertops, a powder room & 2 dishwashers with an adjoining screened porch for effortsless entertaining.The island, designed for the Viking 6 burner cook top is handcrafted from heart pine without the use of nails, screws or glue. The wrap around porch offers glorious views of the lush Southern garden, laced with walkways of period brick. Set back the road, the stunning home sits on more than half of a city block. From its rich history to its modern amenities, seamlessly woven into its Victorian tapestry, Villa Rosa is more than just a home-it's a living testament to the artistry & ingenuity of generations past & present.
