About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The Gulf Coast of Florida is one of the sunniest and most beautiful places to live or vacation that you could possibly choose.

This ground level Villa Style Condo is located within the quiet gated community of Blackburn Harbor consisting mainly of owner occupied homes all sitting in over five acres of beautifully maintained grounds with walks around the lake and alongside the boat docks and “South Creek” which feeds into the intercoastal waterway.

A beautifully sunny location amongst the palms and lush planting it is the perfect place to relax and unwind yet having all the advantages of the onsite facilities to exercise and swim.

The Master bedroom has a King bed with matching dresser and side tables, 26 inch wall mounted tv and a telephone. It has an interconnecting twin sink bathroom with a large walk in shower and a separate bath.

The second bedroom has twin beds, matching side tables, 24 inch tv and a telephone.

The bathroom is separate and also has a large walk in shower.

Both bedrooms come with walk in closets and are nicely carpeted.

The rest of the floors are fully tiled.

The property has been decorated in neutral colours and fitted with plantation shutters throughout.

The property is conveniently situated between Sarasota main city to the north and Venice to the south.

Sarasota is a beautiful city wrapped around the bay on the Gulf Coast. Famously known as the “Cultural Centre of Florida” with its art, theatres, museums, display gardens, shopping and fine dining and you are only ever minutes from the world famous award winning beaches of Siesta Key.

Venice is a delightful old world community with a mix of galleries and restaurants, palm lined streets and canals and a delight to visit as it is always hosting interesting events and displays.

We are so conveniently located. The holiday home is almost opposite to the “Oscar Scherer” State Park consisting of walking and cycling trails, river fishing and boating, children play areas and a swimming lake. It also has direct access to the Legacy Trail, a specially constructed cycleway stretching for 6 miles to the north and 8 miles south going directly to Casperson beach in Venice.

There is “Rosebuds” restaurant within a two minute walk and the main Publix and Walmart supermarkets are only two miles away.

Orlando and Disney is an easy 2 hour drive to the east.

If it’s golf that takes your fancy there are probably more courses here than anywhere else to suit all abilities from the novice to the Pro.

This is the perfect home in “Paradise” and with everything at hand for you to create your perfect holiday!

Blackburn Harbor is a beautifully groomed property in a gated community close to beaches.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Gray’s property in Blackburn Harbor. The condo was well equipped with everything we needed and was clean and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable, a plus for sure! The condo was spacious with plenty of room for two couples. The lanai had direct access to the pool which we really enjoyed. The condo was equipped with bikes, a kayak, beach chairs and towels, and some pools toys! Any questions we had were promptly answered! Thank you Margaret and Richard for a great stay in sunny Florida!
