About the owner: The house has been updated considerably since it was purchased in May 2013. We have spent a lot of time in this home ourselves with friends and family so have troubleshooted issue in the house from a usage scenario. The furniture in the house is very high end and reflects both our tastes as well as our perception of this home. Our expectation is to knock guests off their feet and want to come back here year after year.
Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key Yacht & Tennis Mark I: We have been part of the Sarasota community for over 6 years and had been looking at unique waterfront property for 2-3 years. We have smaller children who enjoy the beach more than, say a house with boat access. This was a major reason for us to buy this house.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: This house is a large beachfront property and very unique in architecture. The proximity to the beach makes it a very usable house. You can walk across to the beach and back and forth all day as you spend your day at the beach. Beach chairs and a sun canopy are provided. You can enjoy very relaxing walks both in the front along the beach as well as the tree lined streets in the neighborhood. There are 2 outside sitting areas that are covered from bugs etc and provide a fresh air experience while listening to the crashing waves. The upstairs balcony has seating to allow you to enjoy the sun as well as the ocean views.
