Property description

This updated family home offers quiet comfortable accommodation with modern conveniences. Beaches (Bradenton Beach, Anna Maria Island, Siesta Key) and Disney are 1-1/2 to 2 hours away. In the family since 1918 but renovated to make it a great home, the house, on 5 acres, has Florida greenery and Spanish moss. The house has conditioned well-water, AC, Dishnet, new appliances, and a baby grand piano. Also, a fully equipped kitchen: coffee pot, toaster oven, microwave, ice maker. Since it is in the country, don't be surprised to see typical Florida wildlife meandering across the lawn -- armadillo (not Florida), wild porcine, lots of birds, and maybe a snake -- watch where you step! But, you can find peace and tranquilly listening to the wind in the oaks and pines. A great base of operations or a place to just kick back. This home could be your perfect place to spend a month or an entire season.
Smoke-free please. Sports/beach equipment available. Wireless High speed internet available. Shopping within 20 minutes. Churches nearby.

Bedrooms - 1- with queen bed; 2- with queen bed; 3-with twin bed. There is also a twin rollaway bed available.

Kitchen - fully equipped for simple meals or gourmet cooking.

Washer and dryer


Entertainment - 2 TVs, one with DVD player, both TVs with basic Dish network (upgradable- contact the owner) Baby grand piano in the living room.

Anna Maria and Bradenton Beaches are 1.5 hours away
Orlando and 4 major amusement parks are 2.5 hours away.
Tampa, approximately one hour away, with MLB baseball, NFL football, and NHL hockey teams is close enough for sports fans to catch a game or two.

Sarasota has museums and art galleries.

Avon Park is the place to go if antiquing is your passion.
