Tranquility in a luxurious setting: Located in a peaceful & private area of the island, this fabulous direct bayfront 3Bed/3Bath, 3-story Key West-style home includes beautiful views of Lemon Bay from every room. I don't mean to be bragging, but I know you'll enjoy our home as much as we do. Our home comes with upscale, tasteful, and comfortable furnishings.
The Main living level includes an open floor plan for enjoying time together with family & friends. It includes high ceilings, a lovely sizeable kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a large screened lanai with a wet bar and gas grill overlooking the heated pool and the bay. The top floor bonus-room has two sleeper sofas and a deck also with a gorgeous view of Lemon Bay. The bottom floor can be used as a separate 'in-law' apartment or as an additional bedroom, bathroom, and living area.
The large swimming pool area, located just off of the additional living suite, is great for entertaining guests, or for a peaceful swim, and includes another grill. The boatdock offers quick and easy boating access to the Inter-coastal Waterway and Lemon Bay. This area is well-known for it's excellent fishing - redfish, trout, snook, or Tarpon, to name just a few. Or you may enjoy kayaking to catch sight of a pod of manatees or dolphins.
Access to the Gulf of Mexico is just a short walk across the road, where you can find loads of seashells and fossilized sharks' teeth on the beach. If you're lucky you may catch sight of dolphins playfully jumping. This is a fantastic island retreat for the entire family!
There are nice restaurants nearby, grocery stores within a short drive, and plenty of shopping areas. The Olde Englewood Village is home to a weekly Farmer's Market, antique shops, local artist shops, and Lemon Bay Playhouse. Sarasota and Fort Myers are nice day-trips from here. Orlando is about a 2 & 1/2 hour drive from here.
Located at the end of DeSoto Drive.
