Property description

This home is regarded as a ‘Premier Property’ by local agents, owing to its size and very high standard of finish. Its delightful rear aspect overlooking the lake and exceptional furnishings makes this home extremely desirable. It has floor space in excess of 2,400 square feet and offers two separate living rooms and a games room. Cable with 42” plasma TV, DVD are all standard in this property which is a short drive from a choice of several of the most beautiful beaches in South West Florida. The large pool area compliments by extended decking area for sunbathing and entertaining. River Strand has community facilities offering a pool, tennis, soccer and basketball courts and a children's play area together with a fully stocked fishing lake - wonderful holiday accommodation!

Golf Membership : It is possible to transfer golf membership at River Strand for 4 players (2 adults and 2 children) The fee for this is $250 and allows an unlimited number of rounds. Included in this rate is full access to the River Strand Clubhouse, a magnificent facilty which includes a full sized resistance swimming pool, tennis courts, spa, fitness and wellness centre, bar and a fine dining restaurant.

You play golf, the ladies enjoy a day of pampering.........that's the first argument resolved!!!!

Pool Heat: The pool comes with a thermal cover which keeps the heat at around 64 degrees. There is also an overide electric water heater but there is a charge for this of $150 per week payable locally.

Guest Feedback: Robin, loved the property in particular the very comfortable living room. The greens at River Strand G.C. were the most challenging that we have yet encountered! Will book again for next February. (Tony Morris - Feb 2008)
Hi Robin,

All going well, your house is beautiful and in a really lovely location. We've spent today by the pool making the most of the sunshine. (Sue Ash. May 2008)

Robin, Holiday home was lovely, great location, beautifully furnished.
Had a wonderful week there, strongly recommend to stay if wishing to visit Gulf Islands, Tampa, Clearwater areas all really close by. (Alistair Dutton May 2008)

The world famous white sandy beaches of Anna Maria Island, Sarasota Bay & Longboat Key are only a 20minute drive away. Here one can spend the day swimming, fishing or sampling the many local watersports in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Or maybe just lazing on the beautiful white sands. In addition to the championship River Strand golf course on which the villa is located, there are several golf courses nearby for a more athletic vacation.

If shopping is your idea of a holiday, this area is ideal. There are numerous shops and malls in Bradenton and Sarasota plus one of the largest outlet malls in Florida only 15 minutes drive away at Ellenton. There is also the exquisite St Armands Circle just outside Sarasota for those with the taste for expensive boutiques and restaurants.

For those who require recharging their batteries at a theme park, Busch Gardens is under an hour’s drive away and the various theme parks of Orlando are only a 90 minute drive.

Other Activities: Baseball & Soccer

Golf: Some golfers like to be the first ones out in the morning. How do you feel about being one of the first golfers – ever – to play River Strand Golf Country Club’s 27-hole magnificence?

Wes Miller, Head Golf Professional, says this golf experience will be everything you’ve come to expect in playing a modern golf course. River Strand features Arthur Hill's trademark generous fairways and precision approach shots.

River Strand provides a challenge to the low handicapper, yet the high handicapper will enjoy it, too! All the while, you’re playing in a gorgeous, natural setting with palm trees, live oaks that Mr. Hills designed around, and a nice mix of river holes.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am a 60 year old retired business executive previously working in the aviation sector. As an enthusiastic golfer, I have always loved the Sarasota area and took the plunge in 2008 buying this property outright.

Why the Owner Chose Greenfield Plantation:
In addition to this villa, my wife an I have an extensive portfolio of other properties in Europe and USA. We are completely committed to providing the best possible guest experience and have been rewarded by the fact that over 60% of our guests have returned each year to enjoy that 'home from home' experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This villa backs onto a lake and is therefore not overlooked. This means that you can laze by the pool, take in the views of the local wildlife and with luck you'll spot our resident alligator...........don't worry he's only around 5 foot!!!
