Beautiful direct views of Lemon Bay and spectacular sunrises will greet you every day. This super-clean bayfront home has a large dock on deep water that can easily accommodate a 24 foot boat. There is driveway parking for a trailer and the home is situated on a half acre private lot surrounded by palms and fruit trees.
Our home is on a private road in the quiet middle-Key area. You will be on the bay and only a short stroll from a private beach. The boat dock behind the house is a great spot for fishing around the mangroves, or just relaxing with a good book. If you prefer the beach, you are only 150 yards away. On the beach you'll enjoy walking, shelling, swimming, water sports, fishing, sunbathing, reading, napping and enjoying spectacular sunsets! Don't be surprised if you see a loggerhead turtle or manatee. Manasota Key is a natural breeding area.
On Manasota Key you are just one mile from restaurants, shops and the bridge to Englewood where you will find golf, theater, shopping, nightlife, marinas with boat, jet-ski, kayak, and bike rentals. Parasailing is available right on the Key. Manasota Key is known as the 'jewel of the Suncoast', but we know it as Florida's best kept secret.
