Vacation in splendor at its finest. This rustic and unique two bedroom, two-bath fireplace home sits serenely on 2.5 wood acres and was featured in Southern Living Magazine in 1984. The interior is very spacious and offers comfortable living with views from every window and every deck. The original owner wanted to make this an ideal spot for watching all the fabulous birds that live or pass through this tropical paradise. Great care was taken to preserve as much native vegetation as possible to attract the birds. And yes, we could definitely call this a âbird houseâ because it is perched up among the limbs of huge costal live oaks. A second story outdoor observation deck was built to allow 360-degree bird watching! You will also enjoy the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico and watch the sunrise over Lemon Bay with your cup of morning coffee. Available for your use are two paddleboards, two kayaks, and there is a boat dock on the bay if you have your own boat. You will have private beach access to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico. Manasota Key beach is where you can explore rarely beautiful and tucked away sections of beach and eco-habitats without the hassles of a well-hyped beach. If you feel the desire to stray from this paradise, you will find everything you could need from shopping, dining and entertainment very close. Quaint downtown Englewood comes to mind here! This is your opportunity to enjoy a Florida living dream location that most never get to experience. March $8,500, April $8,000 and May $7,500. Current availability, May – December 2023.
