Property description

Total renovation just completed by HGTV for an upcoming episode! La Pirata was selected for its beauty, history, potential and mostly the ideal oceanside location with open water views. No expense spared to renovate this beautifully landscaped seaside, Keys-style open floor plan home in Little Venice.

Kitchen features Quartz countertops, shaker cabinets, Italian art-tile backsplash, Samsung stainless steel appliances, a huge island and endless counter space. Massive impact sliding glass doors provide water views from the living area, which is just steps from the water. Top-of-the-line bathrooms feature more Italian tile work, Tuscan oil-rubbed bronze hardware and floating double-faucet vanities. Home is ideally located for your next vacation. Just one lot in from open ocean, for some of the best possible boating access, and fishing right from the 60-foot concrete dock. With Sombrero Reef just offshore and Vaca Cut right around the corner for quick access to the Gulf, this spot has it all.

Three bedrooms comfortably accommodate six people. The seamless, open floor plan kitchen and living areas provide ample room for relaxing after a day of fun. The professionally equipped kitchen is a smooth extension of the living area and offers an island bar along with a wrap-around counter with more bar seating. The open social layout allows the cook to be part of the action, without feeling crowded. A 55-inch Samsung LED wall-mounted HDTV can be viewed from both the living area and kitchen.

The master bedroom offers a comfy pillow-top king-size bed with a hall bath. The second bedroom has it's own lovely en-suite bath and a full bed with twin bunk over head. The third bedroom is off the kitchen area with a queen bed, a great little hide-a-way with a wall of windows for a open feel and another wall-mounted Samsung flat screen TV. A professional foosball table is opposite the alcove and offers family fun and after dinner challenge matches!

Property has a waterside catch and cook station with a large stainless steel grill and over-sized fish cleaning table. A concrete table with benches is on the seawall for lunch with a view, and there is an additional larger outdoor dining table for 6 in the back yard for more seating. The entry patio also has a bistro style table and chairs under cover for shade...many outdoor dining options to suit any preference! The property can accommodate a boat-trailer, plus parking for two cars on-site. Thanks to the central location, the beach, restaurants and amenities of Key Colony Beach are just a short drive or paddle away. Two complimentary 3-person kayaks are available for guest use.

Dogs are considered and if approved there will be a $125 pet fee plus tax.
This property is on a week minimum. City License # PLR2014-00009
