Private Deeded beach access

Car: Recommended

Our home is nested on a quiet water canal street adjacent to Gulf of Mexico Drive with direct private deeded access to the world re-known white sand beach of Longboat Key, Florida where you can come over every night for the most amazing sunsets. We are conveniently located between Sarasota and Anna Marie Island, with a 10 miles stretch of beach as well as walk/bike/running path to connect you to both. Sarasota is known for its fine art galleries, cultural events, live theaters, and the world class restaurants & shops of St. Armand Circle which is only a few miles south of us. To the north of us, there is the laid back Anna Marie Island full of beach cafes, ice cream parlors, etc. In addition to the beach access just steps away, Durante Park is an easy three block walk and offers several lovely shaded trails that lead you through the Mangroves trees ending at an overlook of Sarasota Bay. For families there is a nice shaded playground and for the nature lovers the park has numerous tropical plants and opportunities to observe dozens of sea bird species (http://www.longboatkey.org/Parks/durante.htm). If you are looking for a more active holiday over 10 miles of biking/jogging/walking/rollerblading trails run along the Gulf of Mexico Drive just adjacent to our street. There are also world re-known tennis camps and the LBK Golf Club on the island, as well as free public tennis courts within 3 miles in the community center and plenty of reasonably priced public golf courses in nearby Bradenton. Minutes away are dozens of fishing locations, which helps give Florida the title of Fishing Capital of the World. After an active day our neighborhood have several walking distance options for refreshments. For your convenience Harry's (less than two blocks away) offers a Corners Store, Bakery and Fine Dinning Restaurant. Longboat Key is known as a beach-lover’s paradise on Florida’s west coast, but it is also home to one of the finest and most romantic restaurants in the country — Euphemia Haye - just four blocks away. Upstairs at the Haye Loft, you’ll find the best live music Sarasota and Anna Maria has to offer.If you don't have your own boat/kayaks/bikes there are local vendors who will be able to rent them to you daily or weekly (e.g. Backyard Bike Shop is two blocks way and offers bikes from $10 - 30/ day or kayaks $40-50/day and Cannons Marina is 1 mile north for boat rentals). In addition to the neighborhood locations the Sarasota area has numerous cultural attractions such as: Ringling Museum of Art, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Circus Sarasota, Sarasota Ballet, Opera, Orchestra, and several dinner theater companies. Tampa Bay is about 1 hour drive away and all the Disney theme parks in Orlando are just about 2 hours drive away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I grew up in Sarasota and always loved the beach and island life as well as all the cultural venues Sarasota is known for. I left Florida for university and professional reasons, however, always knowing that I would return to the area at a different phase in my life. I'm now married with 3 children, and Longboat Key provides exactly what we seek which is the serenity and tranquility of a beach life yet conveniently located to all the outdoor activities which we seek for as well as being a hop away to all that Sarasota has to offer. We hope to provide a place that would embrace love, tranquility, contentment, and good will to those who visit our home.

Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
I felt very fortunate to have found this lovely property in July 2012 as a vacation house to share with my husband, 3 children, and our family pet. We're looking to retire in the area, and the house was perfect for our needs. The private beach access is now rare in Longboat Key. The house is on a quiet street and away from the noise, and its close proximity to Anna Marie island and Sarasota is a main reason why we chose this particular home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private beach access to one of the most beautiful beach and magnificent sunsets; Quiet street yet within walking distance to stores/restaurants/shops; Close proximity to Sarasota and Anna Marie Island; Open floor plan; Dock for boats; Private pool; Regular pool/landscape/pest control services; Fully equip with modern conveniences for a home away from home; Everything is provided including all beach equipment/toys/cart/towels/chairs/umbrella/tent, board games, washer/dryer/vacumn cleaner, 3 bikes, 2 scooters, books, DVDs, and much much more.
