Gulf Front with Fantastic Sunsets overlooking miles of glorious soft white sandy beach and smoothing ocean sounds. This is the most pristine and natural part of the Island. Enjoy long relaxing walks on the beach and sunsets. This feels more like a retreat and the Northern End of Longboat Key is unspoiled and is perfect for long walks, shelling, bird watching. It's not unusual to see dolphins playing just off the surf. Plantation shutters give this home the real Florida feel.
