About the Property

Located on wide canal, one block from beach in quiet development w/pool and dock

This 3 BR, 2 Bath home has it all. All new furniture and contents. Freshly painted in and out. New pool deck and dock. Easy beach access, dock for fishing or mooring your boat, southern facing for the best winter sun access. We walk to Harry’s Bar, a casual but upscale restaurant and the best breakfast on the island. Treat yourself to at least one breakfast while you are here. Canon’s Marina, just 1/2 mile away, has bait and boat rentals. Keep your eye out for Manatees, which regularly cruise the dock.

Bike anywhere on the island with rentals from Backyard Bicycles, which is within walking distance.

This newly renovated 3-bedroom house offers the best Longboat Key has to offer. Located on Longboat Key, it is an easy trip to St. Armands Circle, but far enough away to avoid the frenzy and traffic of south Longboat, with convenient acess over the Cortez bridge, which is only 1 1/2 miles north. With eight excellent restaurants within a mile, you will find that there is little reason to leave the island. The Renowned Harry's Bar, with the best breakfasts on the island, is an easy walk. Rent a bike at Backyard Bicycles, next to Harry’s. Rent a boat or stock up on bait at Canon’s Marina, 1/2 mile away. Walk to the seemingless endless Whitney beach on the dedicated private entrance. Fish or watch the ducks and mantees from the dock. All that makes Florida the world's vacation choice comes with this house.

The house has been renovated to update all windows, both bathrooms, and to expand the living space into a huge kitchen/eating/family room, which is not cut up into segregated spaces, as is found in most homes built at that time. The result is an inclusive, family-friendly and easy-to-use room. All appliances are new. Whether there are two or six people, you will find that the living area provides the laid back, casual Florida feeling,

All the furniture is new, except for the deck furniture which is in perfect condition. There is no need to worry about mattresses with indentations or lumps in them. A 55" smart TV with Netflix access provides entertainment in the family room.

The south-facing lanai/patio/pool area is very spacious. There are three sitting areas. One faces east, so early risers can sip coffee and catch the first sunlight. One faces west, offering a great sunset view. The third is under covered area and offers an outdoor eating option for up to six people. Or, watch your favorite shows on the outdoor TV. For warm days, turn on the fan.

This house is on a wide canal in a quiet neighborhood. There is a dock, with mooring space for any boat up to 30' in length.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We have been coming to Longboat for 50 years, in Nancy’s case, and 10 years, in Chuck’s case, and love the area. After more than a year of shopping for the perfect place, we bought in March, 2015.

Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
There are three reasons we bought this house. First, it is south-facing, which is an absolute must during winter's shorter days. The second is the family room, which has been renovated to make it a very useable, family-friendly space. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, is the lanai/pool area. Many Florida houses do not provide the room (or exposure) to accommodate three truly separate seating areas, one for the morning sun, one for the afternoon sun, and the third, which is covered, for eating.
