Manasota Beach house description

Enjoy the incredible privacy and spectacular waterfront views of Lemon Bay and the ICW from almost every room in this waterfront home. Heron Cove is Old Florida at its best! Located on 1.5 thickly wooded acres and nestled underneath ancient Banyan and Live Oak trees on the Sarasota County side of Manasota Key.

Heron Cove is in the exclusive Coastal Hammocks area of Manasota Key and has beautiful foliage with many native plants and wildlife. Meander down the private driveway through tall palm trees and live oak with Spanish moss to ultimate privacy. There is a beautiful lagoon teeming with aquatic and bird life. The lagoon reaches from Lemon Bay to just feet from the home!

Relax while watching Great blue herons, great white egrets and night herons feast on the fish from the dock on your private lagoon. Enjoy your coffee watching the sunrise over the bay. Feeling adventurous? Then easily launch a kayak and paddle the quiet waters of the bay. After your adventure, you can fish from the dock or down by the water. Dine alfresco on the terrace overlooking your secluded cove. Before sunset, meander down the private drive and stroll your exclusive path to the Gulf of Mexico. Don’t be surprised if you don’t see any other people and only see the shore birds by the sea. Enjoy a dip in the pristine waters of the Gulf, hunt for prehistoric fossilized sharks' teeth or collect shells. Savor a glass of bubbly during a spectacular sunset and watch dolphins and manatees on this perfect beach with pure solitude. During turtle season, you could spot a nesting loggerhead turtle as Manasota Key is also home to one of the largest nesting grounds for these magnificent turtles. After the beach, stroll home and enjoy the alfresco shower under the quiet privacy of the majestic banyan and mangroves.

Wind the evening down and catch a movie on the 50 inch HD flat screen TV. There is also a complimentary high speed wifi internet connection where you can surf either inside or out under the stars.

Relax in this lovely paradise and create special memories with your friends and family.

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  Why the Owner Chose Manasota Beach:
                  We love the secluded Coastal Hammocks area of Manasota Key! Winding down Manasota Key Road, you drive under an ancient live oak canopy with Spanish moss cascading down. Turning onto the private road, you drive into an incredibly secluded location. Beautiful water views welcome you! Yet you are only minutes from the mainland where you can stock up at Walmart or Target, go to excellent restaurants or browse the shops in Olde Englewood. The four bedroom Florida layout with cool terrazzo floors is perfect for vacation. Fantastic views from all rear windows! Walk down the path, cross the road and take the private beach path to the most pristine breathtaking beach with miles of secluded shoreline.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You do not want to ever leave the property. As soon as you turn into the long private driveway, you feel the stress from daily life melt away. A short walk through the lovely shaded private path brings you to the most beautiful, secluded beach. Walk for miles finding tons of sharks' teeth and shells. When feeling adventurous, we can launch kayaks from the lagoon at the house into Lemon Bay- watching curious dolphins come close by. Sitting at the lagoon or from the windows we often see great blue herons, great white egrets, ospreys, anhinga, cormorants, bitterns, yellow-crowned night and tricolored herons, white ibis and green herons. It is no surprise the property was named Heron Cove many years ago! Also dolphins and manatees are always spotted on the beach and bay sides.
