About the property

This deluxe home is only a 5 minute stroll along the quiet wooded lane to the sparkling Gulf waters that lap the beautiful sandy beach of Manasota Key. The home is surrounded on all sides by newly updated landscaping. Inside it boasts a large, spacious living area with cathedral ceilings that has been decorated and furnished with great care, taste, and elegance. The main living area is very comfortable and complete with a brand new smart TV with cable and access to online channels such as Netflix and Hulu through a ROKU. The kitchen is well equipped with all the appliances you could wish for, and also features a breakfast bar with 2 stools. In the front of the house is a formal dining area seating up to 8. In the back of the house is a more informal eating area that comfortably seats four and has direct access to the lanai and pool.

SPACIOUS LUXURY. The bedroom accommodations are also very spacious. The beds sleep up to 8 people. There is an additional charge for over 8 guests. The master bedroom with its large bathroom en suite, is complete with his and hers basins, large walk-in shower plus an attractive bath tub. The bedroom hosts an American king-sized bed, beautifully appointed furniture, Smart TV with cable, and patio doors that lead to the pool lanai.

The second master bedroom, although not as large as the first, is still beautifully appointed with a American Queen-sized bed and Smart TV. It has its own sliding door access to the lanai and the pool. It also has its own en suite bathroom with shower and door that opens directly to the pool lanai. The remaining two guest bedrooms are a good sized and are well appointed -both with twin beds and both having TVs. They share the third bathroom (toilet, basin, bath/shower combination).

The deck area around the Pool has lots of space to relax, eat, barbecue, or sunbathe. Pool heating is also available for those cooler times of the year at an extra charge of $25 – in the summer; the water is more than warm enough though.

The lanai area has one large dining table that comfortably seats six, a smaller bistro dining set for two, plus three sun loungers. There is also a gas BBQ so you can enjoy the pleasure of outdoor cooking in Florida.

A five minute stroll and you’re on the beach.

Venice beaches are the world capital for pre-historic shark teeth (no live sharks to worry about these days by the way) – and you can spend hours in the warm surf searching for them. It’s almost addictive.

The fishing is amazing too and everybody is so friendly. The beach has it’s own life guard, changing facilities, showers, toilets and a range of outdoor BBQ’s you can use.

Our house is located in a very quiet area, which is a short drive from Venice town centre and downtown Englewood , it is a tree-lined road used only by local residents. Strange as it may seem the sight of a car on Lemon Avenue is very rare and you’re more likely to encounter a neighbor walking their dog or heading for the beach.

The beach itself is a mere five minute stroll from the house, 2 minutes by car if you’re feeling decadent. The house has a rolling cooler, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and a wagon to pull all your items to the beach. Also included are beach toys for the little ones. We also have two bicycles for your riding pleasure.

For the golfing enthusiast, there are at least 10 courses within a 15 minute drive. A public driving range is just 5 minutes away. Tennis can be played at the public courts in Venice or just around the corner from Manasota Beach Road.

Boats can be hired from several marinas in the area, plus there are also two Scuba diving shops in Venice. You can also hire bikes on the main road to Venice (we have two bikes in our garage). Cycle tracks line a long stretch of the Intracoastal from Shamrock Park, whilst the old railway line to Sarasota is also now a cycle and walkway. In Venice & Englewood, you will also discover a wealth of parks and nature reserves.

Stables for riding and pony trekking are also nearby. For fishing you have Venice pier and of course our own beach, plus those at Blind Pass and Englewood, plus the Intracoastal – the coastline is superb for shelling too and our beach is famous for collecting fossilized sharks teeth!

A Frank’s multiplex cinema is just 5 minutes drive away and the Venice bowling alley is 10 minutes drive.

As for other places of interest: Sarasota offers great shopping, restaurants and Cinemas and beaches, whilst Boca Grande, Punta Gorda, Myakka State National Park, St Petersburg, Sanibel plus Captiva are all within easy reach. Orlando and Disney are just a two-hour drive away.

Peaceful Family Vacation

I took my family on vacation late April 2018. The kids loved the pool, walking Manasota and Venice beaches and exploring the surrounding area. We all enjoyed the quiet, peaceful area that the home is located in. Great Time!!!
