You can mix artisanal cocktails in your very own speakeasy! How? Just peek through the living room door of this four-bedroom bungalow in Tampa, FL, for all the hush-hush spirits your liver can handle in this Prohibition-era boozy hideout.
This vintage bar, located in a former bedroom in this home built in 1927, isn't meant for hordes of carousing party seekers, but there's plenty of room for mingling. Your guests are sure to be impressed by its diamond-patterned wood paneling, curved wet bar, and mirrored shelves for storing your favorite elixirs.
The '20s charm goes beyond the bar: Period details are preserved throughout the home, from the dark wood beam ceiling in the living room to the white, arched french doors dividing the living room from what could be a cozy office or breakfast nook. Look up and you'll see original chandeliers throughout, from a delicate tiered crystal to a sturdy iron creation.
In the sunny kitchen, a white countertop separates the cooking space from a small seating area, all covered in vintage yellow and blue tiling. While the room certainly could be updated, why would you want to? Cheerful blue tiles surround the white backsplash, and the built-in shelving flanking the window above the sink is the perfect place to display your green thumb.
And fans of pink bathrooms, need to look no further. The home stars an adorable washroom dressed in rosy hues, from the tub to the floor and ceiling tiling. With a separate shower and bath, there's plenty of room for your morning routine.
Considering the number of surprising details inside the home, it might be easy to overlook the picture-perfect exterior -- but if you do, you'll be missing amazing vintage accents such as the broken-effect tiling on the patio floor or the chic columns holding up the vaulted roofing. There's also a guest cottage over the garage ready to host your friends in classic style. It features a bathroom, kitchen, and covered porch. Your mother-in-law will never be happier.
Don't let worries about the sneaky problems that come with vintage homes dissuade you from this charmer: The home has new roofing and electric systems, ensuring the upkeep will be light on your wallet.
All you'll have to worry about? Keeping the bar fully stocked.
