Spacious old Florida house, one level, long ranch-style, with cypress wood walls. Large living room with cathedral ceiling and wood burning fireplace. Adjoining porch surrounded by jalousie windows with view of shady, private, fenced back yard. Porch door opens onto concrete terrace for barbecuing and relaxing.
Compact but complete kitchen opens into living room through a bar pass-through so the cook can be part of the party. Large, private master bedroom with king size bed and bath at end of hall. Two additional bedrooms and one bath along hall - 1 large bedroom sleeps four (dorm style with two twin beds and one double bed) and 1 smaller bedroom with a comfy king size bed.
Perfect central location for exploring the Bradenton/Sarasota area and central Florida, then retreating back to this quiet neighborhood near the Manatee river that's great for walking and biking. You can send the kids to the park a block away to play ball. Fifteen minutes to Gulf Beaches, less than five minutes to grocery shopping and downtown Bradenton with the Village of the Arts.
Kitchen is fully furnished with huge cookbook collection and plenty of dishes; flat screen TV in living room, TV in master bedroom, cable and WiFi internet. A well behaved dog is welcome and safe in the fenced back yard, but please leave your cats at home.
This home is cozy and casual. It's not too big for two people but can accommodate eight comfortably. From the porch or master bedroom you can see the tropical fenced backyard, or pull the curtains for complete privacy. This location is quiet & peaceful and 2 blocks from the Manatee river. It's very convenient for access to shopping, local beaches, and area attractions.
This is a non-smoking home, thank you.

Year Purchased: 1952
About: Peggy is a Bradenton native who grew up in this house from the time it was built in 1952. After college she moved to a northern Vermont farmhouse where she and her husband, Dennis, raised their family and still live. Peggy is the director of the county historical museum and the family operates a mail order Christmas wreath business. Dennis is a blacksmith, ski patroller and town lister. Peggy inherited this house when her mother died in 2006. Her mother collected cookbooks and enjoyed entertaining her friends with good food and good company. We hope our guests will carry on this fine tradition!
Why Other Bradenton Properties: Our family wants to keep this second home as a welcome retreat from winters in Vermont; it's our base in Florida to sail, kayak and swim, and to connect with old friends and family. It's a great house with wonderful memories and good energy. This is also our piece of Florida where we've planted avocado and orange trees to enjoy for years to come.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This house is cozy and casual; not too big for two people, but can comfortably accommodate eight. From the porch or the master bedroom you can see the tropical, fenced backyard or pull the curtains for complete privacy. This location is quiet and peaceful, with good walking and biking along the river. It's also very convenient to shopping, the beach, and area attractions.
