Manasota Key house description

Beautiful direct views of Lemon Bay and spectacular sunrises will greet you every day. This super-clean bayfront home has a large dock on deep water that can easily accommodate a 24 foot boat. There is driveway parking for a trailer and the home is situated on a half acre private lot surrounded by palms and fruit trees.

Our home is on a private road in the quiet middle-Key area. You will be on the bay and only a short stroll from a private beach. The boat dock behind the house is a great spot for fishing around the mangroves, or just relaxing with a good book. If you prefer the beach, you are only 150 yards away. On the beach you'll enjoy walking, shelling, swimming, water sports, fishing, sunbathing, reading, napping and enjoying spectacular sunsets! Don't be surprised if you see a loggerhead turtle or manatee. Manasota Key is a natural breeding area.

On Manasota Key you are just one mile from restaurants, shops and the bridge to Englewood where you will find golf, theater, shopping, nightlife, marinas with boat, jet-ski, kayak, and bike rentals. Parasailing is available right on the Key. Manasota Key is known as the 'jewel of the Suncoast', but we know it as Florida's best kept secret.

Our clean, comfortable three bedroom, three bathroom bayfront home has a large screened deck, ceiling fans throughout and heat/central air with humidistat on the main upper level. The main living area is upstairs with living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and two full baths. On the lower level there is a den with TV/VCR/DVD, a ping pong table, an additional bedroom and full bath.

The living room is large and has a wonderful view of the bay. Settle into the sofa or loveseat or relax in the recliner and enjoy the HDTV, VCR/DVD, or CD/stereo.

There are water views from the kitchen and dining room through sliding doors that open onto the large screened deck featuring a teakwood table with seating for 6 and a comfortable two-person swing... perfect for gazing out at Lemon Bay.

The kitchen is stocked with dishes, utensils, flatware and cookware. There is a large side by side refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, glass top range, microwave, crockpot, blender, mixer and coffee maker.

The bedrooms are clean and spacious. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and 20 inch TV. The master bath has tub and shower. There is a queen bed in the second bedroom and a large stall shower in the hall bath. The third bedroom on the first level has a full bed and the full bath also has a stall shower.

The family room has a full-size ping pong table, sleep sofa, TV, and VCR/DVD. There is also a laundry area downstairs with large capacity washer/dryer and an additional sink and counter space.

There is a vacuum cleaner, iron and ironing board, and an outside shower and clothes line for your use. There are bed sheets, bath towels and extra pillows provided.

You can explore Stump Pass State Park and its wildlife sanctuary, hiking trails and excellent game fishing. Nearby attractions also include historic sites, museums, art galleries, live theatre, movies, bowling, the Mote Aquarium and downtown Englewood's cafes and art galleries. Your choices for dining include elegant waterfront restaurants to quaint seafood or barbecue restaurants.

Manasota Key is only 35 minutes from the Sarasota airport and 75 minutes from Fort Myers airport. Within a two and a half hour drive, you can see Florida's finest attractions including Disney World, Epcot, MGM, Universal Studios, Sea World, Kennedy Space Center.
