Lifestyle plays a big part in house hunting. Do you have someone that needs to learn how to ride a bike? Do you have a dog to walk or enjoy taking an evening walk either on your own or with the family? Would it be nice to live near a community park? What about near the river and a boat launch area? East Port St John could be that community. The streets in Port St John Unit 1 all have sidewalks. You are very close to the Indian River and Nicol Park, which; besides having a public boat ramp to the Indian River, you also have the pavillions, the playground, and restrooms at the park.
Check out 698 Aloha Avenue in Port St John Unit 1. 698 Aloa Ave is a true 4 bedroom home that was built in 1968. The home is concrete block construction that offers over 2000 square feet of living space. Inside the home, you have a HUGE family room that greets you upon entering the home. Besides this great space, you still have a living room and Florida room (Yep, 3 living spaces). The retro kitchen offers some great space and features and handcrafted shelving (you should see the wood-work). The home is a split bedroom floor-plan with the master bedroom on the south side of the home and the 3 guest bedrooms & the guest bath on the north side. The home is set up for a generator and all the windows are double pane for energy efficiency and peace of mind on any approaching storms. All this plus plenty of shade in your fenced-in backyard.
