Englewood house description

This charming, two bedroom home is located on a quiet, safe, residential dead-end street, overlooking a wide canal that leads to Lemon Bay (two bridges). You will be just just three miles (five minutes) from the beaches of Manasota Key and close to shops, restaurants and golf.
The pool has a pool cage with a large sunning area and is solar heated. The fully equipped, open floor plan modern kitchen has a breakfast bar. The dining/sun room overlooks the pool and canal. The living room has a comfortable queen sofa bed for those extra guests. You will find a extra shower, sink and toilet in the utility area of the garage. There is a dock for your boat with electric davits. You are about fifteen minutes by boat from Lemon Bay at no wake speed.
You will find everything you need for a great vacation, as we equipped and decorated this as our second home. .

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: Retired executive from the Travel business. I have two other houses for rent in Englewood. Living full time in the Chicago area until my wife retires so we just spend the summers and Christmas here..

                          Why the Owner Chose Englewood:
                          Overlooking a wide canal on a very quiet street but just a few blocks to everything. We bought in Englewood as it is quiet and laid back, like old Florida. Parks and nature preserves abound.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Just the right size and easy to take care of. We love being on the water althogh while we have a doc, no boat at the moment..
