Charm, Location, Bay Views and tropical flora and fauna meld to create this special, private waterfront oasis. Nestled on a spacious lot on a quiet cul de sac street, this lovely home beckons. So close to everything...beach, restaurants, shops entertainment...and yet, so tucked away. A pretty, peaceful courtyard greets you upon entry. The open living space offers vaulted ceilings with skylights, a wood burning fireplace, and telescoping sliding doors with grand views of Anna Maria Sound. Tile flooring flows throughout the living area. The remodeled kitchen offers Jamestown cabinetry, granite counters, newer appliances, and lofted ceiling. The Master Bedroom is a cozy retreat...fireplace, wood floors, knotty pine paneling, and wonderful water views, sunrises and nighttime twinkles. The Master Bath also has new cabinetry, granite counters, vanity, and a large walk-in shower. Bedrooms two and three have been opened up to form one large bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and ensuite bath. This generous bedroom could be transformed back into two, if so desired. French doors facing the courtyard enter into garage With knotty pine paneling, this area lends the possibility of a guest room/mother-in-law suite. The backyard, pool, and waterfront combine to create an unforgettable sanctuary. Wide open views of Anna Maria Sound greet you to the East and to the West, the vibrant deep water boat basin, 39 foot dock with water, electric, and 10,000# lift. A very special, well-loved home on a very special street.
