                              About the owner: A preservationist in all ways ,I spent 1 and a half years rehabbing the Manor , bringing it back to its original glory.The house then was listed on the Historic register in Sarasota County..Being an artist ,the Manor was a perfect canvas for my passion..I lived in the home for 8 years,and am now enjoying my guests in the Manor and gardens.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              If your looking for a beach front condo with white tile and white walls , this home is not for you ! Appointed with antiques , vintage Florida items and art it is warm and comfortable. Unique in every way,with mural walls and exotic applications, you will want to stay 2 weeks to take it all in .(not to mention the garden) The Bamboo Room is an extension of the Manor newly completed for more family members and guests.And now there is The Bird House Bungalow next door., making a great 'mini' hamlet for family reunions and gatherings!
