We often feel nostalgic about those bygone days when life was slower paced, conversation wafted from porches, and children played outside catching lighting bugs in the waning daylight. If you are convinced those images only exist in the past, think again. This charming waterfront home showcases breathtaking views of Gottfried Creek while evoking a sense of nostalgia from all who enter, with its undeniably 'Old Florida' vibe. Surrounded by lush mangroves, you can launch your boat from your private 8500lb lift and meander under one bridge to Lemon Bay, with the crystalline blue waters of the ICW and Gulf of Mexico just beyond. Life here presents the opportunity to slow down and experience birding, fishing, and kayaking with this vibrant ecosystem steps from your back door, and where the daily rhythm of the tide sets the pace. Open the door to this cozy coastal cottage and find an open floorplan that is light, airy, and washed in sunlight. With its classic 'Boos Block' butcher block countertop accentuating the breakfast/prep bar, the kitchen flows effortlessly into the main living area, where plantation shutters further enhance the 'Old Florida' ambiance. Ceramic tile flooring throughout keeps everything tidy while sliding doors gracefully integrate the indoor and outdoor living areas by opening to a spacious lanai, a sun porch, and 1,000 sq. ft. of screened decking with a tranquil view of Gottfried Creek as a backdrop. The primary bedroom is just off the main living area, with a walk-in closet and doors leading to the lanai. A nearby bathroom offers dual sinks and a walk-in shower, and an additional linen closet in the hallway is equipped with a safe. A spiral staircase leads you downstairs to a laundry room, an office/den, a secondary bathroom, and a guest bedroom that comfortably accommodates friends and family. The resident hobbyist will appreciate the 860 sq. ft. air-conditioned insulated garage with an epoxy floor in the workshop area and ample storage. Other notable amenities include a metal roof, new gutters and soffits, hurricane shutters, a convenient storage shed, an outdoor shower and hot tub, an additional half-bath for use when coming in after a fun-filled day on the water, an internet thermostat with phone app control, a Schlage smart front door combo-lock, a 5-camera security system with DVR, a Sony amp with six hard-wired speakers, a separate fish cleaning hut, a storage shed, a sun patio, a fire pit, and a freight elevator. This home is a desirable location and a cozy, peaceful gathering place for family and friends. It is about a 15-minute boat ride from your private dock to the ICW and the Gulf of Mexico, and the home's rear Western exposure provides spectacular sunset views nightly. Nearby Dearborn Street, in Englewood, offers various unique shops, excellent eateries, and a lovely outdoor amphitheater. Residents and guests regularly delight in the fresh produce and unique offerings at the ever-expanding farmer's markets on Dearborn Street. The pristine beaches on Manasota Key are within a short drive. This home is the perfect setting for creating your very own picture-perfect memories. If this sounds intriguing, call today to schedule a private showing, and prepare to be captivated--your truly sensational Florida lifestyle awaits!
