Built in 1921, this landmark cottage in Olde Naples is aptly named “Bones Rest” as the owner Dr. Schultzel is an orthopedic surgeon. This home was once owned by the first physician in Naples, a Doctor Baum. “Bones Rest” features many of the iconic architectural elements of vintage Florida cottages including side gables, shed dormers and multi-light casement windows. The original Florida pine floors as well as the pecky cypress walls and ceilings are still in remarkable condition. Many Naples residents express their love of color in how they paint their charming dwellings. “Bones Rest” has been painted salmon, lavender and blue during its lifetime and is currently a brick red with white trim.
This one-of-a-kind historic cottage has been restored and re-mastered to preserve the charm with modern amenities to provide the comforts of today. The original main residence features three bedrooms and three bathrooms with wrap around porches. A separate one bedroom, one bathroom guest house has vaulted wood beam ceilings, a screened porch and a full kitchen for indoor/outdoor entertaining. In 2000, a pavilion was tastefully added to include an outdoor kitchen and an island style bar.
Located only a couple of blocks from the beach and within walking distance to everything that is Naples, this special retreat offers a rare opportunity because this gem is currently on the market for sale. Virtual Tour
