Property description

The cottage is accessed by a private driveway. It was used by the chauffeur to the family of Alfred Ringling ( of Ringling bros. circus ) and is adjacent to House of Ringling. The property is two stories and has been sympathetically upgraded to incorporate all the modern day amenities, while retaining the integrity/charm of the period ( house of Ringling was built in 1918 ).There are two bedrooms upstairs and a full bathroom with tub and shower. Downstairs a full kitchen, with washer and dryer, living room and dining area. There is full air conditioning throughout. The cottage is by Sarasota bay, the college, museum, arts and crosley mansion. There are 5 beaches within a twenty minute drive. Downtown area is 10 mins. by car. The street is tree lined and the bay is accessible walking. It's a very quiet neighborhood. We have a lanai area and deck/gazebo for your relaxation also.
