Private Homes, Longbeach Village house description

This charming cottage is located on the north end of Longboat Key in historic Longbeach Village. You can watch sunrise from the community dock (steps away) and sunset from the nearby beach (a short walk).

Longboat Key has everything - great restaurants, shopping - check out St. Armands, and the beach is fabulous. The beach is beautiul white sand where you can easily laze away the day, walking, shelling, swimming and lying in the sun (or shade) or just gazing out at the water watching the dolphins.

The home has been remodeled - a 10 month job for my husband, myself and some great trades people. We've added all new electric, plumbing, and metal roof; tearing off and rebuilding the back of the house and installing two completely new baths, master and guest, and a new kitchen. The home has an open floor plan with a view from the living area to the kitchen and the back door. The back door opens onto a patio and lawn area. The living area is 1,250 square feet.

The spacious front room features a living and eating area, an office area with desk, wifi and printer (HP Deskjet 1000). There is a flat screen TV, electric fireplace and a lazyboy chair as well as a sofa, tables, etc. The kitchen features a handmade dockwood center table for gathering around or working on, as well as a bar area and granite tile countertops.

The master bath is adjoining the master bedroom and features dual sinks and an oversize shower. The guest bath has a shower/tub combination. The master bedroom features a king bed and flat screen TV. The guest bedroom has a convertible bed than can be either two twin beds or a king bed.

There is a free trolley during the season that runs south to Sarasota and north to the end of Anna Maria island.

A well trained dog is welcome. Please feel free to call us and ask questions. 303-807-8494 - Karen, 303-378-5543 - Brian.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About: We have five rental properties including two rentals in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Brian works for Tom George Yacht Group and is a former Airport Manager, and Karen is the Finance Director for Dunedin, FL. We moved to Florida from Colorado in May, 2012.

                  Why Private Homes, Longbeach Village:
                  We chose a vacation home in Longboat Key because it's one of the most beautiful places on earth with the best beach in the world! We've been coming here for years and finally found our own little piece of paradise. The people in the Village are great and the snowbirds come for many years in a row, so there is a genuine feeling of community.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This home is one of the first built in Historic Longbeach Village. It is built with blocks made using local sand with conch shells and cement.
