Agent's Comments

This home is truly special and one of a kind! There is really nothing else like it on the market today. A quintessential beach house, that was once a Captain’s cottage on fabulous Longboat Key, is just a short stroll to a gorgeous stretch of sandy coastline where watching the nightly sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico are not to be missed. The home has been reimagined over time by two artists, who have creatively touched almost every surface--inside and out. From the moment you pull into the driveway you are surrounded by a tropical landscape that beckons you to want to see more. A perfect “Old Florida” front porch leads you to the screen door and you are greeted with an immediate sense of calm. The designers desire to convey what true island living can be. The living room walls are all a bright white, with a nice high-beamed ceiling and a wood burning fireplace. Step down into the amazing, remodeled kitchen where an original Flagstone floor was recovered under layers of tile and carpet. One wall of the kitchen has a unique, small round brick fireplace that was likely used for cooking at one time, but is now a striking conversation piece. Through the kitchen windows, you are greeted with views of the pool surrounded in tropical loveliness. A new addition to the cottage comes in the form of a family room with great light and sliders that make for easy indoor/outdoor living. The owners hired a well-known stone mason from Scotland to match the original Flagstone flooring in the kitchen so that the transition is flawless and oh so beautifully unique! A large and lovely pool deck features plenty of room for entertaining, plus an outdoor shower that you may decide to use every day. It is uniquely positioned on the beach side of Gulf of Mexico Drive in the Longbeach Village, a friendly and laid-back neighborhood, which includes a boat ramp which makes for easy access to a day on the water in your boat. 3 relaxed dining establishments are here to experience, or if fine dining and world class shopping is what you’re looking for on any given day, you are located just 20 minutes from world famous St. Armands Circle, and then just over the next bridge to the cultural mecca of downtown Sarasota. This is the kind of beach house that someone will literally fall in love with and can only be truly appreciated in person. Make your appointment today.
