Private Homes, Longbeach Village house description
This beautiful and peaceful Longboat Key home is located at the north end of the island, in the historic and funky neighborhood of Longbeach Village. It is located on the bay-side of the island and is just a few minutes walk to the beach.
The Village features old-world Florida homes, large shaded lots, and the Longboat Key Center for the Arts, part of the Ringling College of Art and Design. This upscale neighborhood is right on the Bay; it is great for walking and biking, and is dog-friendly.
Built in 1957, this cedar-frame home with southern-pine wood interiors was extensively renovated, yet preserves its vintage charm. The home is perched in the corner of a large double-lot, and provides a feeling of seclusion, privacy, and tropical warmth. A large wooden deck with dining area is the perfect place to unwind with friends, or stretch out with a book, following a day at the beach or sailing on the bay.
The house is furnished in warm tropical colors and features local and international art and a wide collection of reading materials.
If you are looking to unwind at the beach, curl up with a good book, or write your first (or second) novel, this tranquil and inspiring home is the place for you.
The home has 2 living rooms/sitting areas -- one warm and traditional with southern pine walls and the other modern and light. The kitchen has new stainless appliances, pine cabinets, a maple-wood island, and the original countertops (sorry, no granite in this 1950s beach-house).
The master bedroom has a queen bed, with a good-sized closet, including a built-in dresser. The second bedroom sits in a sunny corner of the house and has a double bed and two exposures. The smaller third bedroom has a twin bed. The fourth bedroom, which adjoins the master, has a German-designed pull-out queen bed - very comfortable. This room also serves as the study or TV and computer room. The house has two bathrooms - one with bath and one with shower. The second bathroom is petite.
The house is convenient to both beach and bay. Beautiful and dramatic Whitney Beach, at the north end of Longboat Key, where the beach and bay meet, is a few minutes walk. The Bay (ideal for kayaking and sailing) is just down the street. Longboat Key has great restaurants, shops, and recreational facilities - you could spend your entire vacation on the island. If you wish to explore the area, the house is 10 minutes to Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island, 20 minutes from the shops and restaurants at St. Armands Circle, 30 minutes from the theaters and museums in Sarasota, 30 minutes to Sarasota Airport, 1 hour to Tampa Airport.
This home is ideal for those wanting a peaceful getaway close to the beach and the bay. It is a great place to read, write, think, and enjoy nature. The house has cable TV and cable internet, with wireless services.
The house is pet-friendly for responsible pet owners. We have a very large yard with an invisible fence, and our Invisible Fence representative will provide you a collar and training for a fee.
