                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About: We fell in love with this property at first site. Our circumstances keep us from living here full time for the next several years so we are inviting others to come and enjoy the fabulous view and perfect setting.

                  Why Private Homes:
                  Large tropical trees and exotic plants line the private gated drive leading up to this older Mediterranean style home covered in hibiscus and bougainvillea. French doors open off every room and look out across a wide expanse of Sarasota Bay. A private dock with rare deep water access and a boat lift, a floating kayak launch, open air pool and spa and spacious rooms through out the house make it unusual and perfect for a relaxing holiday. Beach access. Concierge available.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  An amazing array of wildlife visits the property daily. Manatees swim so close you might almost touch them. Dolphins, sea birds, fish and more are sighted daily. Three feet of water at lowest tide makes boating from the private dock available anytime.
