Property description

*** Only five weeks available in 2017 ***

This home is mid-way between Sarasota and St Petersburg and is located at The Fairways, in the heart of the Imperial Lakewoods. This quiet residential community is maintained to a very high standard, and is surrounded by lakes and the golf course of Moccasin Wallow Golf Club. This lovely home overlooks natural preserves to the front and rear. The private, fully screened pool (29ft x 13ft, depth graduates from 3ft to 6ft) and outside dining area face south-west. Outside lighting makes for great evenings relaxing with family and friends over a meal.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are over 2 floors with air conditioning to both floors and access to the pool from the dining area. The fully equipped kitchen has an electric range, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. All utensils and kitchenware are supplied. There is a separate laundry room with large washer and dryer. The master bedroom features a king size bed and ceiling fan with remote control. It also has an en-suite bathroom with large shower enclosure and bath tub. Upstairs there is queen bed, 2 twin beds and 2 day beds, with a separate bathroom and shower. Four flat screen TVs, Blu-ray and secure Wi-Fi with inkjet printer feature in the home.

Nearby Bradenton has shopping, fishing and water sports. Sarasota is famous for its fabulous beaches and features the Mote Marine Aquarium, the Ringling Museum, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, theatres, boutiques, fine bistros and restaurants. The new Mall at University Town Center is a 20 minute drive south on the I-75.

There are 35 miles of award-winning white-sand beaches half an hour's drive away at St. Petersburg and Clearwater. Watersports are popular along the warm, calm Gulf Coast shoreline with dolphin watches, pirate and sea-life safari cruises, kayaking, kite surfing, windsurfing and snorkelling. There is also fine dining, beach bars and festivals. The Salvador Dali museum can be found in downtown St Petersburg.

A short drive from St Petersburg is the city of Tampa with more shopping, dining and night-life. It features the Florida Aquarium and there are rollercoaster thrills at Busch Gardens, sister park to Sea World at Orlando.

To the south of Sarasota is the world-class Siesta Key Beach, Myakka State Park, Venice, Fort Myers, Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Steve and I were born and grew up in the North West of England and we currently live near Preston in the United Kingdom. We have been happily married for 20 years and have been visiting the USA since 1997. Our love of the Gulf Coast area of Florida resulted in the purchase of this lovely holiday home near Bradenton, Florida.

Why the Owner Chose Imperial Lakewood's (Palmetto, FL, USA):
We liked the location as soon as we visited The Fairways in 2004, when we were looking for a place to buy. We bought "off plan" and the home was completed July 2005. We like the convenience of being within 5 minutes of the I-75 so we can quickly access our favourite beaches, cafes and restaurants, etc.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Fairways is a lovely, friendly, residential community and offers peace and tranquillity allowing you to relax and unwind.
