Everything about this home and its setting is charming as it combines old Florida feel yet has lovely updating for comfortable living. This 2 bed, 2 bath home plus loft (den or additional bed) brings a true sense of character and personality of how homes and lifestyle used to be. Located within the exclusive gated community of Eagle Point, a waterfront community on Roberts Bay and walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants of Venice island. Outdoor decking all around the house with tropical flora to enjoy and always find a sunny and a shady place to relax. This home also boasts a 2 1/2 car garage plus additional parking and is set on an almost park like setting with mature landscaping, shell driveway and amazing privacy. Gorgeous flooring and details that bring back the nostalgia of this home, combined with high ceilings and loving improvements to include a kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances. Pictures will not do this home justice as you need to experience it in person....see the setting, see the warmth of the home, see the community and it's wonderful history and amenities that it affords. Eagle Point is comprised of roughly 40 homes, behind gates, and has 30 boat slips directly on Roberts Bay with no bridges to the gulf which is just a 5 minute boat ride to get to. Additionally, the community clubhouse, built in 1916 by the Palmer family and on the historical registry, is a great gathering place to see the other neighbors or use for private functions. The clubhouse also includes a guest quarters upstairs and an additional guest cottage for the exclusive use of Eagle Point homeowners for when you have extra company in town. A boat slip is not guaranteed but there are many unused that can only be negotiated for use by homeowners. This home is so unique and has so many things to offer, from it's original heart of pine flooring and trim to it's truly tropical surroundings dating back over 100 years. It is an old Florida feel, combined with modern updates, and is situated in one of the best known and prestigious gated communities in all of Sarasota County....for under a million dollars! Venice, as well as Sarasota county, are consistently ranked in the top 10 of the best places to retire and/or vacation. 5 Minutes to Venice Beach, 10 minutes to Nokomis Beach, 20 minutes to Siesta Key beach. Legacy bike trail linking you from Venice to Sarasota as well! Arts, restaurants, beaches are abundant. Again, simply charming!!!!
