Private Homes house description

We love our Florida home and will use it when you're not there. Please treat it with care. We love the community ferry that takes us to South Venice's private beach. But we also like to bike to Caspersen Beach for a bit of exercise and scenery along the intracoastal. It's the best place to catch Venice's incredible sunsets, in fact. After building five homes prior, my parents built the Venice house with all the little extras like added lighting and dimmers throughout, sky lights, lots of large windows, and an open floor plan that offers a true Florida-home experience. We have lots of family in the area so we come back often and consider Venice one of the best kept secrets in the state. We love the cozy feel of its historic, pedestrian-friendly downtown, as well as the beachy, rustic feel of South Venice where folks know they've found something special because it's off the beaten path. For a swim in the pool or a workout, we join our friends and head to the YMCA just down the road. And Sarasota is only a short drive if you run out of things to do in the neighborhood (but that basically never happens). When you look at a map, you will see the parks and nature preserves within and surrounding our humble little city. It makes Venice one of the truly desirable destinations for outdoorsy types like us who hike, bike, kayak, as well as go to the beach. You'll love Venice and our home. But don't tell too many of your friends about us...

Keywords: Bright and open floor plan, well-kept, comfortable, private home in beachy community. Easy access to tennis, walking/biking trails, senior center. Bike to beach w/o using US 41. Easy access to stores and quick (25 min) commute to Sarasota for major shopping or touring (but you won't want go anywhere once you arrive!).

              Location

              You are less than .23 miles from an intracoastal trail that connects to downtown on the island and to the Rails to Trails 40 plus mile trail that extends northward through Sarasota. It is an active trail with self-guided nature walk and is great for boat and bird watching. There is also a unique dog park AND beach for dogs of all sizes. Caspersen Beach, among other beaches is only minutes away for a quiet sunset or take the ferry during the day to a private beach where you will meet your neighbors. Enjoy!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: We use VRBO to book our ski destinations and have never been disappointed. We love the outdoors. Whether in the mountains, on the farm, or on the coast.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              This is a family property and we built the home with my parents originally. They retired in Venice in 1993. We lived in Tampa at the time.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love to bike and use the extensive bike trails throughout the area. It's so easy to walk or bike from this house. Most people have to drive and park to pickup the Venetian Waterway Trail. We love the rustic feel of the area, but you can go from rustic to high-end in minutes! It truly has everything. And our neighbors are great!
