Property description

This is a unique piece of old Florida on Snead Island. We remodeled the apartment in 1997 with hickory floors in the living/dining room. The kitchen has hickory cabinets with granite countertops and a slate floor which flows into the bathroom. The bedroom is carpeted and has a select comfort queen size bed with cherry furniture, including a desk, TV and VCR. Living room and bedroom have cathedral ceilings and clear-story windows. Living room has plenty of seating to enjoy the 46' HD TV, DVD, VCR or CD players, along with a gorgeous view. New Laz-Z-Boy queen air hide-a-bed with matching love seat.

The apartment 'tree house' is nestled amongst hundred year old oaks on two acres which include a citrus grove and pond. When in season, you can enjoy tree ripened mangoes and citrus. While having breakfast on the porch, you'll have a beautiful view of the Manatee River. In the evening, watching the sunset while having cocktails by the fire will provide a chance to see the manatees swim past the boat dock, or you may choose to watch the sunset from the Jacuzzi.

We are 1 1/2 hours from Disney World, and hour from Busch Gardens and Mote Marine, a world class aquamarine research facility which gives tours.
