This 2 bedroom 2 bath house was built in 1989, and features a tin roof, with living quarters on 'stilts', in the traditional coastal Florida style. It was remodeled and all new furniture installed, in the winter of 2010.
Nature lovers will find a lot to love. The house sits on a 3 acre lot which it shares with one other similarly-styled home. A large deck with outdoor seating and dining overlooks mangroves at the edge of Lemon Bay. Oranges, grapefruit, mango, bananas, and avocado trees, plus many native plants grow on the property. Owls reside in the mature pines surrounding the home, and eagles and osprey nest nearby.
A coastal estuary is beyond the mangroves, where kayaks can be launched and paddled into Lemon Bay. Sea birds and fish are plentiful, including redfish, snook, and spotted sea trout. Stump Pass is immediately across Lemon Bay, which provides access to the Gulf of Mexico.
Within 10 mins, there are beaches, 3 golf courses open to visitors, marina's for boat rentals and a fishing pier. Boca Grande with unique boutiques, quality restaurants and world famous Tarpon fishing in the Pass, is 20 mins away. Sarasota is 30 miles to the North, with many cultural attractions (theater, baller, opera, concerts, Ringling Museum), as well as spring training games with the Baltimore Orioles.
