A TRUE BOATER’S PARADISE!! Boasting 146 ft of waterfront, this 2-story, 3000+ Sqft home on PALMA SOLA BAY offers ample dockage on DEEP WATER that can accommodate 2 boats of 50+ feet… AND has a 10,000 LB. LIFT, while being just minutes from the Intercoastal Waterway. Whether you prefer sailing those island breezes, fishing for tuna and snapper, or just cruising around with friends, you’ll be on the GULF OF MEXICO, in NO TIME AT ALL!! If you are looking for the BEST SUNSET WATER VIEWS IN ALL OF BRADENTON, then come on home to what the neighbors lovingly refer to as, “Dolphin Bay”, with it’s WIDE OPEN, PANORAMIC VIEW of the bay! Delight in watching the pods of dolphins that frequent the waterfront around this property and wow your friends with the videos you will get, as they feed and frolic about, daily. Of course, there is a plethora of wildlife for the keen naturalist, from ospreys and roseate spoonbills to white pelicans and manatees, that can be observed from almost every room in the house, not to mention the many outdoor spaces. Surrounded by lush, tropical landscaping, float the day away in the pool, feeling as if you are in your own private paradise. Taking a late-night dip in the hot tub, you will truly appreciate the privacy afforded by being at the end of the cul-de-sac, encompassed by nothing but water…not a neighbor in sight. This amazing property has been meticulously maintained by the current owners for over 25 years. Hurricane windows and doors throughout, and a new roof was added in 2017, and 2 new AC units this past year. Additionally in 2017, the flooring was updated throughout the upstairs to a gorgeous bamboo and when it comes to the kitchen, they thought of every detail. With soft close, white, coastal cabinetry, and a perfect mixture of glass front and solid paneled doors, there is plenty of room to display your treasures, while being able to tuck everyday pieces out of sight. With sliding spice racks, pot drawers and cabinets for days…. storage in this kitchen is a dream. Grab a bottle of wine from the wine cooler or make a drink at the bar, while that fresh catch is cooking…but take care not to burn your supper, being too distracted by the VIEW!! Come stand in this kitchen and you’ll see how easy that is to do! Being open to the living and dining room, this space is perfect for entertaining, as some guests can also spread out to the back porch and look out over the bay, while visiting with you as you cook away. Send the rambunctious ones downstairs to the huge family room, with its equally gorgeous views, to play games out of the way…or turn the space into a home theatre…the possibilities are endless. Within the 2.5 car garage there is plenty of space for your toys and a workshop too, with tons of additional storage along the back wall. With a fully fenced back yard and room for an RV, this expansive lot will afford the new owners a place to keep it ALL! Whether planning to be a full time resident or using as a second home with phenomenal income producing potential, you and your guests couldn’t ask for a better location. Just one mile to the sugary sands of Anna Maria Island and all the island has to offer, from restaurants and shopping to the world class beaches, there is something for everyone! Create a life you don’t need a vacation from, and start living your best life today!!
