Property description

Be captivated by the unique Florida charm of this lovingly cared-for, spacious single-level house tucked away in Historic Longbeach Village on North Longboat Key. Located within walking distance of Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, guests can walk or ride bicycles to get everywhere. Enjoy the community’s boating and fishing dock, local restaurants, and Longboat Key Center for the Arts. In addition, a free trolley offering both air-conditioned and open-air seating runs the length of Longboat Key and Anna Maria Islands from Coquina Beach through St. Armands Circle to Downtown Sarasota, permitting easy access to shops, groceries, and attractions.

The home’s barrel-tiled roof and patterned brick walkway welcome you at the front entrance. Relax on the bench swing under a vine-draped wooden trellis that bursts into color during blooming seasons. Two driveways, a garage, and a portico (not to mention street parking) offer ample space for multiple vehicles.

Upon entering the home, your eyes are immediately drawn to the dining room with its gorgeous hardwood floors. Two walls of floor-to-ceiling glass doors let you enjoy a garden view along with your meals. Slide the doors open to access a screened enclosure and manicured backyard. This smooth-flowing split plan features three bedrooms and two baths. With two queen beds, two twin beds, and four convertible sofa beds, this home is suitable for families and couples and sleeps 10 comfortably.

Enjoy the 40” High Definition LCD TV with HD and premium movie channels. This property also includes a DVR with an extensive On Demand library. Children can play video games on the Nintendo Wii or the family can gather around one of the provided board games.

The backyard paradise includes a gas grill and garden with 15 varieties of fruit trees. During your stay, please help yourself to the lush fruits!

Why Private Homes, Longbeach Village:
Historic Longbeach Village is truly a unique island paradise. Described as funky by some, it abounds with old Florida charm. Close to Sarasota Bay, beaches, Anna Maria Island, restaurants, shops, and attractions; yet secluded and peaceful. We fell in love with the natural beauty and connection to the arts community. And were intrigued by the stunning and colorful native wild peacocks that roam around the village.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Short walk or bike ride to Sarasota Bay with public docks and benches, tasty neighborhood restaurants, Longboat Key Center for the Arts, and beaches. This property is spacious with some very special features, including plush carpeting and hard-wood floors, two walls of floor-to-ceiling glass doors in dining room providing lots of fresh air and natural lighting, ability to close off dining room from living room and kitchen/breakfast area with pocket doors, private access to guest and twin bedrooms from portico and garage, wrap around lush garden, screened enclosure with grill and seating. Plus modern conveniences such as 40' HD TV with premium movie channels, DVR, DVD/VCR, high-speed cable internet with WiFi, and free unlimited calling to the U.S. and Canada making it easy to stay connected to family and friends.
