Property description

This is a little piece of country right in the city. We are just off of interstate I-75 at SR-70 behind Tara Preserve and Tara Golf Course on the north border of Sarasota. It's a Bradenton address but Sarasota is just across the river. Located approx. 30 mins. from the beaches, 15 mins north of the new world class rowing facility and 30 mins from downtown Sarasota or downtown Bradenton and the outlet malls for shopping (less than 2 hours to Disney!) Willing to negotiate for extended stays and a smaller unit for shorter stays.
This is a unique home on the main body of the Braden River. Boating, paddle boating, kayaking from the back yard. Approx. 1200 sq ft of living area upstairs with 500 sq. ft of deck overlooking the river in rear of the home and 200 sq. ft. of deck with a river view in the front. You can literally cast a line in the water from the upper rear deck. This is a fresh water river with tournament bass fishing and access to 500 acre Ward Lake. The sunsets are remarkable! There is a paddleboat, tandem bicycle and kayak, BBQ grill and fishing poles for the guests to use. There is a laundry room downstairs to be shared with the guest who stay on the first floor. Off street parking and water front views from all rooms. This area is part of the Braden River Historical Society and is a protected fresh water preserve. There is no access to the gulf waters but you can boat to the dam and fish the brackish water on one side for snook and redfish. Bass and Crappie on the fresh water side. The wildlife surrounds you and for you bird watchers, you will be impressed!
