One of the MOST unique properties in Bradenton. There’s really nothing quite like it. A peaceful and tranquil slice of heaven directly on the banks of the Braden River, this gated 3-unit compound is a perfect opportunity for retirees or investors. The main house is currently occupied by the owners and boasts a large first floor Master Bedroom with a King-size bed in the original log cabin that sat on the property and a large Master Bath. The second bedroom loft is overlooking the living area, a spacious gourmet eat-in-kitchen, an oversized living area with a gorgeous stone wood-burning see through fireplace in to the Main Bedroom, and a screened-in porch you will want to practically live on overlooking the river. Not only are you enveloped in lush and luxurious landscaping, pathways, live oaks, and fauna to explore, how does a lazy stroll down the Braden River on a kayak sound, leaving from your very own personal boat dock? Additionally, the Airbnb and VRBO rental potential on the two stand-alone units in the compound have historically paid the mortgage and all the expenses for all three properties. What better way to ‘semi-retire’ and still feel useful all while earning a great income stream. The two rental units are affectionately called “The Guest House” and “The Cottage”. Each has its own kitchen and full bath. The Guest House is the larger of the two and has a spacious living area separate from the bedroom. The Cottage is a little cozier and is the smaller of the two rental units. There’s also the possibility to rent all three units including the Main house and therefore, greatly increase the income stream potential. This truly is a property that must be seen to be appreciated. Southwest Florida charm at its finest. There really isn’t enough room here to list all the collateral benefits of owning this outstanding offering. This entire compound comes fully furnished except for a few personal items. A turn-key residential income property opportunity directly next door to the historic Linger Lodge! Enjoy proximity to I-75 and the best the area has to offer while being away from it all.
