About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths
Peacock Place, our 'big house' on Anna Maria Island is a sprawling old-Florida style home with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and plenty of space. It is ideal for a large family or several couples. It is very close to the beach, with only one other house between it and our beautiful, un-crowded beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Anna Maria is less than an hour away from 3 major airports: Tampa (TPA), Sarasota (SRQ) and St. Petersburg-Clearwater (PIE). Just a short trip across the Intracoastal Waterway, AMI is easy to get to, and difficult to leave!
The house is ideal for a large family or several couples. It has been added onto here and there over the years, creating a pleasant haphazard of living spaces. The kitchen is bright and airy with ample room to cook for a crowd, and now has brand-new Italian ceramic floor tile. Just about every tool or appliance you could want is probably available. For outdoor cooking, there is also a gas grill, a small charcoal grill and a small smoker. The main living room is quite large with lots of comfy sofas and recliners. Many games, toys and puzzles, plus an extensive library of vintage books, are tucked into nooks, crannies and shelves all over. There are three dining tables in this room, and lots & lots of chairs! There is a new HD TV, extended digital cable, DVD, digital music player, satellite radio, and high-speed wireless internet.
On the east side of the house, there is a large screened porch. It is the ideal spot for sunrise and coffee, and great for sleeping when it is not too hot. The porch has another dining table too. In the old breezeway, there is a fun retro-style cocktail bar.
The master suite is surprisingly elegant. It is also quite large, with a brand-new, super-comfy king-sized bed, two dressers and a small armoire (contains TV). There is also a cozy sitting area with a corner fireplace. The master bath is spacious and cheery, with an exterior door that takes you straight to the beach, and a nearby outdoor shower.
The other two bedrooms each have a pair of twin beds--they can easily be pushed together to make a king bed. The small kids bedroom has two bunk beds. As well, there are two queen-sized sleeper sofas. There is also a second full bath with a large walk-in shower. The entire house has central air conditioning. Peacock Place can sleep 8 adults.
There is only one other house between this one and the beach. We have lots of beach toys and umbrellas. You can easily walk or bicycle to shopping and restaurants all over the island. There is also a free trolley that runs from north Anna Maria to south Longboat Key (the next island south) and a trolley stop just down the street from the house.
This house is entirely ground-level - there are no stairs. Peacock Place is also pet-friendly. It has a large yard (no fence). Dogs are not allowed on the beach or at newly-opened Neal and Perico Preserves, but they can swim at the boat ramp or on the Palma Sola causeway, just a short drive away. Dogs are also welcome at Robinson Preserve, but they must be on leash.

Year Purchased: 1960
About the owner: I’m Denise - wife, stepmother, aunt and grandmother who loves all things Florida, especially our big house on Anna Maria Island. Though I do have a real job, I would much prefer to be a full-time beach bum and spend as much time near or in the water as possible. There is no better place to enjoy this lifestyle than on Anna Maria Island, one of the few remaining barrier islands with little development and lots of old Florida appeal!
Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
My maternal grandmother bought this house and its neighbor in the early 1960’s and both houses have remained in our family ever since. Many, many happy events – parties, reunions, weddings, honeymoons and celebrations – have occurred here over the years. We enjoy sharing our little piece of paradise with those who appreciate Anna Maria Island for its slow pace, laid-back ambience and quirky charm. Very little has changed in our neighborhood over the last 50 years and best of all, the beach, the Gulf and those unforgettable sunsets are only a short stroll away!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everyone who has stayed at Peacock Place over the years appreciates the relaxed, spacious atmosphere of this rambling house. It has lots of good vibes!
