Property description

This exquisite 5000 sq. ft. villa-style home boasts 5 bedrooms & 4.5 baths on two floors. The main floor, done in Travertine marble, offers an oversized living room area with a cozy leather sectional and occasional seating, a den/office area, formal dining area, gourmet kitchen also with casual eat-in dining table and a spacious king sized master bedroom suite with sitting area, and a luxurious bathroom ... complete with jetted tub for total relaxation!

Car: Recommended

Any stay at our 'Vienna' Paradise home must include: hunting for shells and sharks teeth along the sandy beach; daily bike rides along the quaint Manasota Key Road's canopied roadway; beach yoga at Englewood Beach; jet skiing and sunset cruising with Beach Road Rentals; swimming with dolphins in the Gulf; and participating in any number of cultural and social events such as fishing tournaments, boat races and regattas. Other annual celebrations include an Art Guild Show, Seafood Festival, July Beach Bash with Fireworks, as well as the annual Turtle Watch when Sea Turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand.

Manasota Key is largely undiscovered and quite spectacular to explore. Stump Pass state park is just a five to ten minute bike ride away on the southern tip of Manasota Key. Secluded jungle trails and hidden coves will transport you back in time. Restaurants and shopping are located within a 15 minute drive where you will also find golf, tennis, cinemas, and even a small amusement park for the kids. Further to the north are the lovely cities of Venice and Sarasota with the Ringling Museum of Art, Mote Marine Aquarium, many fine restaurants, and live theater productions. Be as active or as relaxed as you like in this little bit of paradise on the Florida Gulf Coast! Only a two hour drive from Orlando and just over an hour from Tampa.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Janet and Chris, with their three kids and Golden Doodle puppy, live in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. The picture above shows Janet and the kids on a dolphin cruise off Manasota Key this summer... lots of dolphins!! With a relatively young family (kids are 13, 12 and 9), Janet and Chris are frequently found on any number of soccer, softball and/or football fields as well as drama and musical production venues, supporting their kids' passion for sports, teamwork, and the Arts. While Janet and Chris both earned their undergraduate degrees in the Northeast, they didn't meet until their late 20s after career excursions to LA, NY and DC for Janet and global travels with the US Navy for Chris. Currently, Janet runs a family business and Chris works in the engineering field outside of Boston.

Why the Owner Chose Englewood Beach:
We found our 'Vienna' Paradise home in the search for a family vacation spot that could handle large and small gatherings of friends and family - and give us a retirement dream-home to enjoy long before we actually retired. The open feel of the villa-style home's floor plan, combined with its high-end amenities and quiet setting on Manasota Key, immediately gave them the feel of a beach home escape without any of the worries of being directly on the ocean. The 'Vienna' reference is to Janet's favorite Billy Joel song... check it out.... This place is ALL ABOUT SLOWING DOWN.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The 'old world' Florida ambiance of Manasota Key makes this a true oasis from the hustle and bustle of suburban life back home. We lose ourselves in days filled with going from the pool to the beach and back to the pool again. And, we love that water sports are five minutes away and day-trip options abound with outings to water parks, zoos, semi-pro ball parks, and museums - not to mention lots of cultural arts activities in Sarasota, Venice and Englewood.
