Property description

This home is on the bay with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, with spectacular views of the causeway leading to Anna Maria Island. It has five (5) bedrooms, four (4) bathrooms located in northwest Bradenton - less than 10 minutes from the island beaches. The property is surrounded by tropical landscaping, has a heated swimming pool, a large hot tub, and a private dock. A pontoon boat is available at the dock for rental as well.

The home has a large master bedroom, located on the 2nd floor with french doors leading to the deck / balcony area overlooking the bay. It has a king-size Sleep Number bed and large full private bathroom. Note that all of the bedrooms have plenty of closet space, tvs , ceiling fans, etc. Adjacent to the master bedroom is private sitting room. On the other side of the house, there are two bedrooms also located on the 2nd floor with its own stairway access. One is a king bedroom that has a toddler bed, the other is a large bunk bedroom with 3 bunk bed set-ups. There is a twin over twin bunk bed, one twin over full bunk bed and a day bed with a separate trundle bed - so this room can sleep up to 7 kids, if needed. There is a shared bathroom between these two bedrooms.

On the 1st floor, is another king bedroom perfect for grand parents or those who cannot manage the stairs. The 5th bedroom also on the 1st floor, has a queen bed with a crib. The two downstairs bedrooms also share another large bathroom between them, but is accessible to the game room area. The 4th bathroom is located at the rear of the house and doubles as the pool / patio bathroom, as it has two doors, one from the living room area and the rear patio area.

The home has a beautifulr kitchen that is fully outfitted for everything you would need. Most bedrooms have its own tv and there is a large tv in the living room.. The entire house has beautiful tiled floors, with the several rooms having wood finished ceilings. The dining room can handle up to 12 guests with two added bar / eating areas in the kitchen. The living room area has seating for 10 to 12 guests. The laundry room has full-size washer & dryer located off the kitchen.

The billiards / pool table room is directly off the main entrance to the house. There are also plenty of board games, variety of books, and a stereo. We have a foosball table, electronic darts, and a game table. The outside heated swimming pool and covered patio area is quite large and overlooks the bay. It has plenty of lounge chairs, several patio tables, a large bbq grill area, and a pool refrigerator. We also have a number of beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach and pool toys. We just added an outdoor PingPong table!

This property is fabulous and has a large back yard area overlooking the bay. The water is beautiful and has numerous fish, we occasionally have manatees and dolphins right by the dock. There are also a variety of ducks, blue herons, osprey, eagles, and other wild aquatic birds. The dock is great to watch sunsets from, go fishing, or simply enjoy eating out on the picnic table located right on the dock. This vacation home is just 'off island' and you can be on Anna maria island beaches in roughly 10 minutes - depending on traffic. The property is close (within a 5 minute drive) to a variety of restaurants, grocery stores, shops, movie theaters, golf courses, bowling alleys, etc. This vacation home offers everything for that well deserved tropical getaway.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My wife and I have enjoyed this home for years - as it was our family home. However, all of the kids are now out on their own and we have decided to down-size to a much smaller home.

Why the Owner Chose Bradenton, FL, USA:
Our property is absolutely fantastic ! You will enjoy all it has to offer - from the Bay and sunset views over the water to the vast number of amenities for the house itself. There is a pontoon boat available with the house for an additional fee.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is very large and will accommodate a large group of guests. The general areas such as the Kitchen and Living Room areas are fantastic, including the covered patio areas, the heated pool and hot tub surrounded by tropical landscaping, and much more ! We have our own dock with a pontoon available for $600/week. Please take time to learn about our vacation home.
