Private Homes house description

Lovely home, located on a quiet canal with a private dock in beautiful Buttonwood Harbour. Relax in completely enclosed pool surrounded by lush Florida landscaping. Enjoy the kitchen, dining room, and den with retractable sliding glass doors that open up to the beautiful lanai.

This home is located in beautiful, peaceful Buttonwood Harbor. The pool is completely enclosed with a screened in lanai. Enjoy the pool and peaceful, private dock on a deep water canal where frequent visitors include dolphins, sea rays and manatee. Daily visitors you will see are jumping fish, herons, pelicans and many other beautiful friendly birds. The house is located on a very quiet cul-de-sac with only luscious mangrove tropics across the street from the front of the house. We are also an easy walk, drive or bike ride to the beach.


Bring your boat and tie up right on your back yard dock. Walk down the street to the beautiful beach or jump on a boat and head straight out to Sarasota Bay. The cut to the gulf is only minutes away.

Relax by the pool on the screened in lanai. Enjoy outdoor living at its best as you watch the peaceful water and birds out back on the serene canal while sipping a cool drink and grilling your steaks on the grill. Feel free to cast off the dock to see what you will catch or maybe you'd like to rent a boat nearby and check out the sites.

The house is easy one level living. There is a spacious living room with a flat screen TV and generous view of the lanai and pool.

Take a short stroll up the peaceful streets of Buttonwood Harbour to the uncrowded, quiet, white sand beach perfect for morning beach-combing and end of day amazing breathtaking sunsets.

The master bedroom features a king-size bed, the guest bedroom also features a king-sized bed and the den area has two sleeper sofas.

This home has high speed wireless internet access so you will be able to work efficiently or just keep in touch with family while you are away.

The house is situated on a quiet dead-end street with minimal traffic. There are no homes across from you - just quiet mangroves along the bay.

The home is located in the neighborhood of Buttonwood Harbor. Almost directly across the street from the Buttonwood Harbor entrance is public beach access. You can easily walk, drive or bike to this access. There are three bikes available for biking.

This home and location is perfect if you have a pet. The street is perfect for walking together as you have the uninhabited area right across the street plus the neighborhood is wonderfully quiet. Longboat Key hosts tons vacationers with their dogs - having lunch and walking around St. Armands Circle, walking in Joan Durante Park, Beach at Bird Key, Beach on Cortez Avenue, walking Gulf of Mexico Drive, etc.

Longboat Key is on the West Coast of Florida, near Sarasota and one hour south of Tampa. Sought-after Longboat Key has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the area.
