Sarasota chateau / country house description
I have a smaller downstairs unit not featured that is available. Please contact me for pictures. Its a very nice cozy 600 sq ft right on the river!
This is a little piece of country right in the city. We are just off of interstate I-75 at SR-70 just behind Tara Preserve and Tara Golf Course. It's a Bradenton address but Sarasota is just across the river from the back yard. Located approx. 40 mins from the beaches, 15 mins north of the new world class rowing facility and 30 mins northwest from downtown Sarasota or downtown Bradenton and the outlet malls for shopping (less than 2 hours to Disney!) Willing to negotiate for extended or shorter stays.
This is a unique home on the main body of the Braden River. Boating, paddle boating, kayaking from the back yard. 1200 sq/ ft of living area upstairs with 400 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, BBQ grill and fishing poles for the guests to use. (kayaks possibly in the near future) There is a laundry room downstairs to be shared with the owner who lives 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!

- My home is minutes off the intersection of I-75 and SR 70 in East Bradenton just behind Tara Golf Course. Easy access to the beaches and located just north of the new world class Rowing Facility is Sarasota. We are just 15 miles from beautiful downtown Sarasota and even closer to the Lakewood Ranch shopping area. Disney World and Universal Studios are less than 2 hours away....moreless
ReviewsWrite a review
I loved staying on this property. It was clean and cozy. I would get up in the morning and sit outside and see nature at it's finest! The wildlife on the river was amazing. Fishing abundant for sure! Paddling down the river you would see alligators, turtles and some of the most beautiful birds I have ever seen. Taking a walk one day a huge bald eagle was flying 25 feet above my head! It was unbelievable This is a great getaway spot for anyone, even if you are from the area. Go and enjoy! It is well worth it!!!!
