Private Homes, Longbeach Village house description

Great 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with pool on the north end of Longboat Key. Longbeach Village is a neighborhood with 'Old Florida Charm' unlike most of LBK. You will be two houses from the bay (boat launch and pier), and 3 blocks from a fabulous stretch of beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Two restaurant/pubs (Mar Vista and Moore's Stone Crab) are also right there. If you enjoy boating, you can bring your own boat or rent from one of the local marinas. Go north less than a mile and you are on Anna Maria Island and near Coquina Beach. Go south and explore the many miles of Long Boat Key, including the Mote Aquarium, and finally the fine shops and dining at St. Armands Key.

The house has three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining room, full kitchen, as well as a 'Florida room'. Outside is a fenced-in yard with in-ground Gunite pool with plenty of chairs to relax in. A gas grill is also provided. Behind the fence is additional parking with room for a boat trailer or additional car. House has plenty of ceiling fans, air conditioning, 2 HD TVs, FiOS service with Phone/Cable/Internet/WiFi.

              Car: Recommended

              Please refer to the aerial photo of the area around the house - it will show a great view of where we are and what's within walking distance. You will be surrounded by idyllic places to enjoy the sun, sand and water. You will feel like you are on a Caribbean island with perfect white sand and azure waters. The bridge at Longboat Pass connects Longboat Key to Anna Maria Island where lots more activities are available. You can walk here or better yet take a boat or kayak from our boat launch. Even by kayak you can get to Jewfish Key and.or Beer Can Point, where people congregate and soak it all in. If your dog is with you, you may want to take part in the daily 'Dog Thirty' where neighbors meet at the arts center at 5:30pm to socialize - with dogs and liquid refreshments! And at any point during the day or evening, two great restaurant/pubs are just footsteps away.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We are from the northeast, but have been in love with this area for a long time. Someday, we hope to live here year-round!

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Longbeach Village:
              We have always been interested in the 'old style' Florida villages like in the town of Anna Maria. We wanted a house, not a condo, and we wanted to be within walking distance of one of the great Gulf beaches. We spent a long time looking in Anna Maria before we realized that there was a similar area at the north end of LBK. It was everything we wanted!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              1) Walk to beautiful beach 2) Private Inground Pool 3) Quiet friendly neighborhood 4) Steps away from bay for boat launch, fishing, kayaking, dining, etc.
