The Waterfront condo description

The award-winning Waterfront on Venice Island is the newest and most luxurious condominium complex on the island of Venice. It is ideally located on a beautiful and natural section of the intra-coastal waterway. It is one block from historic downtown Venice and situated alongside the Venetian Waterway park & bicycle trail.

The Waterfront is a Landmark of upscale living featuring a beautiful northern Italian architectural style, lush landscaping, over-sized elevators, private dock, and a wonderful heart-shaped pool with adjacent pavilion. State-of-the-art security systems include coded remote-control gates, monitored smoke/fire alarms with sprinklers, and hurricane-proof doors/windows. Designated covered parking is provided on the ground floor.

This spacious, 1821 square-foot, 3rd-floor condominium has a bright, open floor plan with unforgettable water views from many rooms. Newly decorated in an upscale mid-century modern style, it includes a well-equipped kitchen with bar, formal dining area, study, living room, private master quarters with en-suite bathroom, private guest quarters with en-suite bathroom, and a laundry room. The focal point is the large lanai which can be accessed from the living room or master bedroom.

You will enjoy all the comforts and conveniences of this modern condominium including designer cabinetry, granite counter tops, fine Italian leather sectional, and unique vintage accessories. All beds have new pillow-top mattresses with down comforters. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the guest room has two extra-long twin beds. The master bath is glorious with a double vanity, huge walk-in shower and a large Roman tub. The study has a large executive desk and leather chair.

Equipped with all the latest entertainment and communication gear so you can stay connected while on vacation. Watch movies or TV on the 47” LG HDTV. Choose from digital cable, blu-ray/DVD, or apple TV. High speed internet access is provided with hard-wired or WiFi capability. Also enjoy free local and U.S. long distance phone service.

From the lanai you have a perfect view of the intracoastal waterway where manatees and dolphins come to feed and play. Watch blue herons, egrets, and numerous other waterfowl in the rookeries.

Activities abound. Hang out at the crystal-clear heated pool, fish from the private dock, or cruise down the intracoastal waterway to beautiful Roberts Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Walk one block to historic downtown Venice and enjoy fine dining, shopping, galleries, and live performances. Stroll along Venice Avenue (one of the grandest boulevards in the U.S.) to lovely Venice beach.

Venice is a golfer’s paradise, with numerous challenging, yet affordable courses in the area. Free lighted tennis and basketball courts are an easy walk. Brand new his & her cruiser bikes are provided. Ride the bicycle trail to unspoiled Caspersen beach, or take the Legacy trail north to Sarasota.

                  Venice is the perfect location to explore all that Florida's gulf coast has to offer. Florida's cultural capital, Sarasota (20 miles north) has theaters, gardens, and museums galore including the spectacular Ringling Museum of Art. Or discover Warm Mineral Springs (14 miles east), one of the great wonders of the natural world. Opportunities for day trips abound including Walt Disney World (2 hours), Crystal River/Kings Bay (2 1/2 hours), Thomas Edison Museum (1 hour), to name just a few. Then, at the end of the day come back across the drawbridge onto the Island of Venice and just relax.

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: My wife and I grew up in the midwest and we both went to Purdue University. In the early 1980's we moved to San Diego to start our careers and now live in Dayton, Ohio. We have a son starting college next year and a daughter in high school. Since moving back to the midwest, we have dreamed of retiring to a tropical area, and after years of travels and research we decided Venice would be our little corner of paradise! Sincerely, Andy & Mary
