About This Property

Do you believe that quality is more important than quantity? And are you looking for an easy-to-maintain garden with your beach house? And do you want a sense of community with your neighbors? Situated in the community of Long Beach on north Longboat Key, this house is ready for new bay to beach owners! Finishes in this property are much higher than comparable properties, from the ceramic tile and travertine floors, to the onyx fireplace surround, to the solid cherry cabinetry and thick, beautifully patterned granite (quartz, mica and tourmaline)! You'll be delightfully surprised at the amount of under air living space that exists, with two sitting room areas so if your home is divided on sports night, each can watch their own! The extra deep tub in the second bathroom affords the opportunity for a good soak after a hard day on the water, and the kitchen is work-easy with energy rated appliances. The exterior is deliberately low maintenance, with xeriscaping and native plantings, drip irrigation, bright awnings and a circular drive. You could re-purpose the porch back into carport if you choose, or simply enjoy having that extra covered space to chill and enjoy the views. The laundry room has additional storage space, and houses the solar water heater. The location is a peach, being only a few homes away from the bay and a short ride to the public beach at Whitney. You have the best of being north on Longboat, near parks as well as privacy, and you can choose to exit the island north or south!
