Property description

Lovely private Gulf of Mexico Frontage vintage home... this is a lovingly maintained private home, the home features an all wood tongue and groove interior reminding us of a New England camp. The home has extensive rear oceanfront sun decks leading to a large private gazebo, on a bluff, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Fully furnished in a casual and comfortable style this home affords spectacular gulf sunsets from the second story master suite as well as the common areas living and dining rooms downstairs.

Fully stocked with all of the comforts you would expect, the home provides an excellent atmosphere for reading, reflection, relaxation, private beach access, high speed wireless internet, cable TV, outside shower, BBQ grill and of course all of the pleasures of private beachfront living.

Located 1/2 mile south of the Stickney Point bridge, we are located conveniently to the south village which has many fine shops and restaurants


SPECIAL DEALS AND PACKAGES: I do on occasion offer special rate packages and deals. Please email me for special scheduling at bush.wacker@verizon.net and tell me a little bit about your needs and I will try and meet your every expectation.

Located within walking distance of fine restaurants, shopping, grocery stores the convenient location can not be beat. The place is on a dead end street with a very private setting. Clayton's Siesta Grill is a signature restaurant in the South Siesta Village, now serving breakfast and another favorite is Javiers which features fine Peruvian fare. Just across the bridge is Panera Bread, the shops of Gulf Gate, Stonewood Grill and Carabas and the shops of the Sarasota Pavilion.

Our south Siesta location is convenient to Crescent Beach, Siesta Beach and Turtle beaches. Just a quick hop over the bridge to the mainland, and you are on highway 41.

Within a 15 minute drive are Sarasota Square Mall, Southgate Mall, the shops of Gulf Gate, and beautiful downtown Sarasota's arts and cultural activities. Just across the bridge from downtown is the lovely shopping and dining experience of St. Armands Circle.

It's a quick drive out Clark Road to the interstate, the activities of Tampa, Orlando and points south are all within an easy few hours trip.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My name is Chris Hicklin. I was born in Kansas City, Missouri and was raised in New York State. I attended Kennesaw University and Emery University in Atlanta. I Graduated Cum Laude from Life University in Marietta Georgia and have been a practicing full time practicing Chiropractor at 3220 Clark Road, Sarasota, Florida since 1981. I have two wonderful children, a son and daughter, both grown and out on their own. I purchased this home in 1998 and have enjoyed all of the fine people I have met through their vacations here. I am a photographer as well, a small portion of my work can be seen at http://chicklinphotography.com/index.html. I have a cat named Arizona who roams the property and keeps an eye on things. I live on the property and have enjoyed sharing this unique beachfront property with an amazing group of people from corporate COE's to airline pilots to fine artists to international diplomats...just about every walk of life imaginable. The wonderful relationships I have made through the sharing of this unique property has enriched our lives. A relaxed and private life by the Gulf of Mexico on Siesta Key is amazing... just breathtaking, please come enjoy this old house and see for yourself. Please write an email to me for your families specific needs as our circumstances changes daily.

Why the Owner Chose Point of Rocks:
I come from a family with close ties to Southwest Florida and throughout my early years visited relatives in the area every summer while I was in school. On my 16th birthday, still living in New York but spending the summer in Florida I announced that I would move to Florida when I completed my studies. 3 months after taking my degree at Life College I moved to Sarasota with my new wife and started our family here. I purchased the beach house from old friends, he a retired World War 11 United States Navy Captain and she a writer. I could think of no better place to raise our children and to spend my life, it has been a dream. Living on this barrier Island...Siesta Key... is wonderful.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house sits on sandy seaside bluff, on a dead end street, at the end of a wooded 300 foot driveway, a mere 30 feet from the sea. The elevation is without parallel, the ground floor elevation is 14 feet above sea level which affords it a one of a kind perspective on seaside living. The property is very private, truly a one of a kind tropical paradise.
