THE FORGOTTEN FLORIDA WATERFRONT

Sarasota Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This is a little piece of country right in the city. We are just off of interstate I-75 at SR-70 just behind Tara Preserve and Tara Golf Course on the north border of Sarasota. It's a Bradenton address but Sarasota is just across the river. Located approx. 30 mins. from the beaches, 15 mins north of the new world class rowing facility and 30 mins northwest from downtown Sarasota or downtown Bradenton and the outlet malls for shopping (less than 2 hours to Disney!) Willing to negotiate for extended or shorter stays.

This is a unique home on the main body of the Braden River. Boating, paddle boating, kayaking from the back yard. Approx. 1200 sq ft of living area upstairs with 500 sq. ft of deck overlooking the river in rear of the home and 200 sq. ft. of deck with a river view in the front. You can literally cast a line in the water from the upper rear deck. This is a fresh water river with tournament bass fishing and access to 500 acre Ward Lake. The sunsets are remarkable! There is a paddleboat and kayaks, BBQ grill and fishing poles for the guests to use. There is a laundry room downstairs to be shared with the owner who lives on the first floor. Off street parking and water front views from all rooms. This area is part of the Braden River Historical Society and is a protected fresh water preserve. There is no access to the gulf waters but you can boat to the dam and fish the brackish water on one side for snook and redfish. Bass and Crappie on the fresh water side. The wildlife surrounds you and for you bird watchers, you will be impressed!

I bought this home a year ago and have poured my heart into restoring it to its original condition with some major improvements. I look forward to sharing it with guest!

Billy purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

We are conviently located near just about everything florida has to offer. A piece of country right in the city.

With 2 stories of window overlooking the river, the views are incredible!

RELAXATION,NATURE WATCH, RIVER ACTIVITIES (BOATING, PADDLE BOAT, CANOE).

  • 5 of 5
Arrived on our first day of winter vaction and unpacked and then right out on a wonderfull deck for viewing of nature at it's best. It wasn't long before the camera was out and I was taking picture of many kinds of birds, on the water, beside the water and in the trees. Judy was relaxing, watching and in between stitches of her quilt she is making and enjoying nature with me. We where happy that shopping was just up the road and in no time had the refrigerator full and ready for home cooking. Very quiet street whitch made for a more relaxing atmosphere. We surely enjoyed our stay and will return for another winter of enjoyment.
Thank you Billy for kind attention and talks.

WHERE TO WINTER IN SARASOTA

  • 3 of 5
Fantastic view, very private and very quiet. Owner is very helpful and obliging. Attractions in Bradenton and Sarasota are only minutes away via Freeway which is a few miles from house. We managed to get to all the beaches no problem.
We stayed for 5 weeks and other than the neighbours barking dogs and a few minor issues that the owner is now aware of we have no complaints.

Owner's Response: Thanks David,
I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay. As I had stated this is my first year doing the vacation rental and it is a work in progress. I appreciated the suggestions and have addressed them as best I can. As you know we have spoke to the neighbor about his dog and believe that has been resolved. I do hope you will consider staying again if you should travel this way next year.

BRADEN CHATEAUX

  • 5 of 5
I loved staying on this property. It was clean and cozy. I would get up in the morning and sit outside and see nature at it's finest! The wildlife on the river was amazing. Fishing abundant for sure! Paddling down the river you would see alligators, turtles and some of the most beautiful birds I have ever seen. Taking a walk one day a huge bald eagle was flying 25 feet above my head! It was unbelievable This is a great getaway spot for anyone, even if you are from the area. Go and enjoy! It is well worth it!!!!

My home is minutes off the intersection of I-75 and SR 70 in East Bradenton just behind Tara Golf Course. Easy access to the beaches and located just north of the new world class Rowing Facility is Sarasota. We are just 15 miles from beautiful downtown Sarasota and even closer to the Lakewood Ranch shopping area.

Disney World and Universal Studios are less than 2 hours away.
