Hi I’m Beth Hobart with Beth Sells Florida, and today I’m coming to you from 303 Dubsdread Circle, in one of my favorite neighborhoods, College park.

This 2 bedroom, 1 bath pool home was built in the 1940s by architect Hayward Shacklett. Shacklett is also responsible for building several other homes in the Dubsdread area, before going on to design locks for the Panama Canal.

In the 1950s, the house became home to the brilliant and pioneering Brownie Wise, Vice President of Tupperware Home parties. The story of Brownie Wise, who was the first woman to be featured on the cover of Business Week, is a fascinating tale of one woman’s perseverance in the business world, and will soon be a major motion picture starring Sandra Bullock.

This house is just as amazing as its former occupants. An incredible blend of Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern, it features beautiful hardwood walnut floors, original 11-foot tray ceilings, a gorgeous hand-painted mural created by the architect, glassed-in Florida room, numerous custom built-in shelving, window seats and all of its original details intact. The bathroom has a unique tiled shower tub and the Master Bedroom features a stunning arched window.

The Art Deco kitchen has tons of counter space, and there is also a breakfast nook off the kitchen. It’s the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee with a great view out the curved wall of windows. In addition, this home also has a large pool with a brick paved, screened enclosure, and opens out on to the historic Dubsdread golf course, all located in the heart of College Park.

If you are looking for a home that is extraordinary as you are, look no further. For more information on this, and other listings that I have available, please feel free to contact me. My name is Beth Hobart, I’m one of the top Realtors in Florida, and I’m here to help.
