Take me to the River! Need space from your neighbors? How about 3 1/2 acres on the Braden River, with 277 feet of water at your backyard. An added plus is A-1 Zoning which opens the door to endless possibilities. Relax by the beautiful pool within your nature retreat and observe the Florida wildlife, from Otter to Osprey to the most amazing fish you can only dream about. You may see a 40 inch Snook, or a 52 inch Gar, or even a 3 foot Yellow Jack. When you're not observing nature at her finest, you can keep busy with gardening, creative landscaping (without association rules), or possibly adding another home or two! The property is set back from the road with a long driveway. Adding to the privacy, is a tropical front yard oasis, with palm trees and a rock waterfall. The living room includes a fireplace to add to your relaxed state of being. The spacious owner's suite has a two-sided fireplace, connected to the ensuite bath, which includes dual sinks and an alluring bathtub. The kitchen is a chef's delight, with fine granite countertops, beautiful 42" wood cabinets and ample counter and cabinet space. Enjoy boating? You can set sail from your own private dock in the backyard of your Gulf access home. The uninhibited night sky makes this a stargazers dream. This property delivers privacy and seclusion, yet just around the corner from shopping, dining, medical facilities, Braden River High School and I-75. Just a short drive to the sandy Gulf beaches, the Sarasota/Bradenton Intl Airport and within 45 minutes of the Tampa/St Pete metro area. Where the river flows, there is life; schedule your visit now.
