Osprey house description
Beautifully decorated, peaceful, private, and a view of the water are the best words to describe this home. Freshly painted, newly carpeted and a newly installed dishwasher add to it's plusses. The arched, enclosed lanai that surrounds the heated pool opens up into the living room, family room and master bedroom. This adds even more square footage for relaxing or entertaining to this already spacious home.
The wet bar is conveniently located in the family room close to the pool area. The "pass through" window into the lanai area from the kitchen makes serving on the patio so convenient and easy. With two walk-in closets in the master bedroom, two double closets in the guest rooms, and four other closets,plus two linen closets,storage space is never a problem.
Situated on Sarasota Bay with access to the Gulf of Mexico makes our home on the marina an ideal place to be. The marina and surrounding land were once owned by the Ringling Brothers. They used the marina for their water circus. If you walk by the water today you can meet one of the trained dolphins they left behind and his manatee friends. Or you might just want to sit on a bench in the marina park and enjoy watching the beautiful sunset over the bay.
Our home is nestled between Venice Beach (The Shark Tooth Capital the World!), and Siesta Key Beach. That means we are between two of best beaches on the west coast, some say the world!
Golfing, Dog Racing, St. Armunds Circle, Marie Selby Gardens, Ringling Bros. Museum, the best restaurants in the area, and even Wal-Mart all surround our home.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: After selling our car dealership and semi-retiring we visited Jack's brother who lives in Venice, Florida to see if we might want to purchase a home in the area. One visit was all it took. Originally we bought a smaller home in Venice until we learned the area and it's attractions. That's when we found South Bay. The only problem, there were no homes available in South Bay when we were ready to upgrade. We moved to Nokomis instead which was one step closer to Osprey. Finally in 2004, tired of living on the noisy greens of a golf course community, we found our home in South Bay and moved to Osprey. Little did we know that shortly we would be granted custody of Jack's grandsons and not be able to use our dream home in the winters as we had planned. At least not for a few more years anyway. Our winters are spent in Ohio where we are enjoying watching our boys play sports, and guiding them as they grow up, which is much too quickly!
Why the Owner Chose Osprey:
We bought in South Bay mainly because it is on the water and because of it's location. Even when you can't make it to the ocean you can still look at the water while sitting by the bay. We were very interested in acquiring a boat and excited about the idea of having ocean access from the bay that surrounds our home. It's a wonderful community. Peaceful, friendly, and relaxing. The location is right in the middle of all we enjoy doing in the area without being in the busy city.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy our personal marina and personal pool. We also enjoy socializing with our neighbors at the club house pool and hot tub as well. The work out room, and games in the clubhouse along with the tennis and the basketball courts are a plus when the kids come to visit. They also have planned activities and socials for the kids and families. It's nice to be able to step out your back door and be at the bay. Makes canoeing, fishing, swimming, boating, etc., so nice. The water is always so peaceful and relaxing. Especially those sunsets on the bay. In your own backyard where you don't have to drive anywhere to see it!
