Buyer's loss is your gain! Brand NEW AC system with NEW Hurricane Pad with tie down straps installed Nov. 2020. Do you dream about having an AFFORDABLE HOME with DIRECT WATER ACCESS to the GULF OF MEXICO? Have a Boat or just want to Fish from a 700' Pier with fish cleaning station? Are you a fan of Tiny House Hunters on HGTV? This "TINY" yet VERY SPACIOUS HOME is the answer! It is in Braden Castle Park on the Braden River as it opens into the Manatee River. The community currently offers BOAT DOCK RENTAL for only $214 a year to residents! Have an RV? Parking spaces also currently rent for only $214 a year. This CLEAN and WELL-MAINTAINED HOME is MOVE-IN READY and TURN-KEY FURNISHED. UPDATED KITCHEN with Soft Close drawers and wood cabinetry. YES, it has CENTRAL HEAT AND AIR, most of these Tiny homes have only window units. How about a Florida Style Basement with an INDOOR LAUNDRY ROOM? This home is built on a Florida Style Hill (slope), allowing for a 3-step down "basement" aka mudroom. There are 2 sleeper sofas, one in the living room and one in the Bonus room for the comfort of overnight guests. This home has 3 OVERHEAD CEILING FANS, something else most of these homes do not have. Between the carport and the laundry room is a LARGE STORAGE ROOM/ WORKSHOP with lots of space and shelves to store your beach chairs and fishing gear. This home also has SOLID and LEVEL FLOORS. There are 2 LARGE PATIO AREAS, one in the front so you can sit and converse with other park residents as they pass by on bicycles or golf carts and a back patio where you can sip your coffee and watch the sunrise over the marina and the Braden River. Can it get any better? This ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD is on the NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES. It was originally established by the Tin Cup Campers in the 1920's. Over the years, most homes have been passed down to family members. Very seldom does one of these homes become available. This FRIENDLY COMMUNITY allows ample opportunity to socialize. Besides the fishing pier there are BOAT RAMPS, PRIVATE BOAT DOCKS and RECREATION FACILITIES with numerous events and activities. Check out a book at the LIBRARY, enjoy a GAME of POOL, work out in the EXERCISE ROOM, or challenge your friends to SHUFFLEBOARD. There is always something happening here – the community bulletin board and newsletter will keep you informed. Although this is a PRIVATE, SECLUDED, LITTLE VILLAGE, it is only minutes from WORLD CLASS DINING, SHOPPING, AIRPORTS and BEACHES. You can live like a Millionaire but stay within a fixed income budget. Check out the attached video fly-over and 3D virtual tour, or, come see it in person!
