Riverview Boulevard is a unique executive home available for exclusive hire. The home is situated at the mouth of the Manatee River just 45 minutes from Tampa International Airport and 30 minutes from Sarasota International Airport.
Just the drive alone along Riverview Boulevard is an experience to enjoy lined with outstanding beautiful homes, none of which are the same all looking out onto the wide Manatee River. When you reach the entrance to the property you will be encapsulated by the pure beauty of this wonderful home, you are greeted by the large wrought iron electric gates leading on to the travertine tiled sweeping driveway lined with beautiful trees and manicured landscaped gardens. Set in 2 acres it will truly take your breath away. As you pull under the porte cochre you will feel like a film star!!
The home took over 1 year to decorate inside alone; the Mediterranean techniques deployed are magnificent. The soft furnishings and accents are luxurious in every room. On entering this home you will not know where to look first as the level of detail is beyond comprehension.
The kitchen has been fully equipped with Viking appliances; you will find a double fridge freezer, double dish washers, top of the range cooking appliances with warming ovens, ice makers and even a fire in the corner. If cooking really isn’t your thing somehow you can’t help but feel truly inspired in this amazing kitchen. The vision through the massive aquarium glass is a view to behold and creates the most amazing back drop whilst you entertain your guests around the granite breakfast bar and island containing a wave that filled with ice holds your champagne and or shrimps for that special pre diner aperitif before taking your seats in either the formal dining room under an exquisite full chandelier or outside on the solid one piece granite dining table. After diner you can choose to retire to the formal lounge or you may choose the outside bar area or you may fancy having a game of table tennis or pool whilst enjoying a night cap at the fully equipped bar in the games room with a choice of 4 TV’s playing a selection of games.
After spending a day out shopping/ boating/diving/ beaching you may want to just arrive home and relax, this is where the movie room plays its part, every film lovers dream, imagine reclining back in your very own 8 seater cinema watching your favorite movie. You just have to see this room to believe it
The home was designed for enjoyment both inside and out, the outside has so many different seating and entertaining areas all with stunning views across the Manatee River and Emmerson Point, you will never tire of this view. There is so much activity to watch as you sit back and take it all in .Dolphins swim regularly in the River and sometimes even underneath the dock. The dock is over 400 feet long so you can walk out and see even more wildlife close up, manatee wallowing in the water coming up for air, herons, egrets, spoonbill rosettes ,pelicans, seagulls and ospreys. Most Thursday evenings there is a sail boat regatta with various boats busying up and down the river heading out to the Gulf just minutes away.
Enjoy all this wildlife activity while using the outside bar and grill and at the same time watching your family and friends relaxing and unwinding in front of your eyes in the infinity pool and the large Jacuzzi. You can fish just off the dock for snook, redfish, trout and flounder with out having ti get on a boat
If you can drag your self away from this beautiful home there is so much you can do, Anna Marie Island is just a 20 minute drive away where the sand is like walking on talcum powder with a superb restaurant right on the beach. Quite often at the week end you can witness a small wedding gathering on the beach. Rent a boat and pop over to Egmont Key, Fort Desota, Sarasota, St Petersburg and enjoy some fishing or go and visit one of the many waterside restaurants in Bradenton along the River Manatee.
