Only 15 minutes to the most spectacular beaches on Anna Maria Island and Bradenton Beach. Fully fenced this property would make a fabulous family compound or the perfect vacation home with room for everyone. Tropical plantings fill the garden with palm trees dancing in the breeze and with an abundance of colorful blooms. This yard has a Ylang Ylang tree, which is what Chanel #5 is made from and let me just say the smell is intoxicating, just amazing! A lovely front porch is the perfect spot to enjoy the garden while relaxing in the shade. The main home has original wood floors, so many vintage features and custom moldings, built ins and other details from this classic time period. Coastal colors let you know that you are in a fun beach bungalow. A formal dining room is at the center of the home and leads into the modern kitchen which has a laundry room and an extra little room before the back door to the deck. The bedrooms are spacious and have good storage and the attic closet has actual stairs (not the pull-down kind). The guest cottage is located above the 2-car detached garage and has a balcony, living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom and is also decorated in a beachy/coastal theme. The outdoor living area has a summer kitchen in the tiki hut which includes, a grill, mini fridge, tv, lighting and plenty of space to serve up a great meal in your own little paradise. New pool and new spa with color changing lights will keep you cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter and add to the absolute vacation everyday vibe that this place has. Two homes for a great value in a super location, with so many possibilities, vacation homes or live in one and rent the other, or room for everyone! This home is zoned house plus duplex, multi-family (less than 10) so tons of potential for investors! This home had no hurricane damage and never lost power thanks to the solar panels! Fantastic home!
