Stunning riverside villa with private dock, heated pool, lanai, 2100 sq feet of air-con. Verizon FIOS HDTV, high speed internet, free phone calls within USA. The street is quiet and safe (no thro-traffic). Recently re-modeled to a very high standard with everything that you could need. Landscaped garden and beautiful views over a nature reserve and salt water creek. Boat access to the Gulf from the private dock. Only a few minutes from many golf courses and the white sandy Gulf Coast beaches. The cathedral ceilings make it bright and open. It has a well-appointed modern kitchen. The large master bedroom with its fabulous en suite bathroom and tray ceiling has direct access to the pool area and is placed on the opposite side of the house to the other bedrooms, which gives peace, quiet and privacy. The pool has a removable safety fence. See www.rodmct.gmxhome.de for more information about Venice and lots more photos of our piece of paradise..
Fishing and Boating Paradise!: You can enjoy the luxury of fishing and boating from your own private dock in the back garden. The community boat dock and ramp is 200 meters from the front door. This allows you access from the doorstep to the deep sea fishing and all other boating pleasures of the Gulf within 15 minutes ( at idle boat speed) .
Thrill and bargain seekers!: For the thrill seeker Busch Gardens, Tampa is less than hour's drive away with the full selection of parks at Orlando (4 Disney Parks, Sea World, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, 4 Water Parks, the opportunity to swim with dolphins, night clubs etc.) just one and a half hours away .
The shopaholics are also well catered for with Designer Outlet Malls at Ellenton 25 minutes away and the designer shops at the St Armand's Circle even closer.
Flying and biking fans !: Venice Municipal Airport is less that 10 minutes away, offering rental and instruction possibilities for private pilots. The airport's central position on the Gulf Coast makes this a wonderful base to explore Florida and the Bahamas by small plane with countless airfields to visit, most of which will gladly provide a courtesy car for a couple of hours at no cost!
The Gulf Coast has a well developed network of bike paths for cycling enthusiasts. In particular you have direct access to the Legacy Trail (a converted railway line) just round the corner in Laurel Road which then takes you directly to the Oscar Scherer State Park in a few minutes by bicycle.
June and I are both still working so we cannot spend as much time in our piece of paradise as we would like so it is available to rent. We speak English and German.
We are hobby pilots and have flown in many parts of the world including most of the USA. When we first visited Venice we fell in love with it and decided to buy a place there.
Venice offers the perfect compromise with fabulous beaches and the relaxed living style of the Gulf Coast while still being in easy reach of the entertainment in Orlando and Tampa and everything they have to offer. Unlike some areas on the Gulf Coast there is easy access to all of your shopping needs but the house is located in its own little piece of paradise as the pictures show!
