Property description

Looking for that Old Florida experience? Then, you will love this historic home that was once a U.S. Army “Changing House” before being moved to the island and becoming a unique family home. Located just one house away from Anna Maria Island’s 7 mile long, white sugar sand beach, this 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom home can sleep 13 in the bedrooms plus another 2 on the living room’s sleeper sofa. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and an en suite bathroom. The 2nd bedroom also has a king-sized bed plus a twin-sized day bed. The 3rd bedroom “Bunk House” is perfect for all the kids with 2 bunk beds, each having a twin-sized bed on top and a full-sized bed on the bottom, and, in addition, there is a king-sized bed as well. The “Bunk House” also has an en suite bathroom and a TV. The home offers a variety of interesting features including: a spacious Florida room with a wet bar and ice machine; 2 refrigerators for lots of groceries and beverages; 2-outdoor showers, a claw-foot bathtub; front loading, large capacity washer & dryer and much, much more. A wide, wrap-around porch on two sides of the home has rocking chairs and swings for family fun or quiet relaxation. The backyard is fenced and ready for children and pets. Old Florida is waiting to be enjoyed with this charming home at the beach.
