Why Sue or Rich Freeman chose Englewood
This is an oasis of tropical splendor, in a quiet neighborhood of single family homes set in a pine woods. It's in a part of the Florida Gulf coast that is 'off the beaten track' so it's not crowded or overbuilt. It still has the 'old Florida' look and feel with a canopy roadway (over-arched with oaks and palms) the length of Manasota Key and on-the-waterways restaurants.
What makes this house unique
This house has a private pool surrounded by greenery (skinny dip anyone?). The 3 bedrooms are at each end of the house for quiet sleeping and each has its own bath. The living space is open, bright, and airy. There's a large, fully stocked kitchen with an eat-in counter. or dine in the dining room or at the table by the pool.
The house comes with 2 bikes and 2 kayaks so you can explore the area via multiple modes.
