"Step through the custom gate into the charming entry court, through the hand-made front door and you re looking at the Intra-Coastal Waterway which runs through Anna Maria Sound. The view is even better from the artist s studio upstairs; it provided decades of inspiration to a well-known local artist. With an 80-foot frontage on the canal, no bridges to open water, only one house to the end of 58th Street, and an unimpeded view through the end of the tranquil canal, this is a lovely home. It would also make a lovely home site for a newer building, even though this home has been updated several times through the years and lovingly maintained. There are three bedrooms with en-suite baths, at least two of which could be master bedrooms with walk-in closets. The light, bright floor plan features wonderful (and unusual) butcher-block counter tops in the kitchen, Mexican tile floors, plenty of storage, a large screened porch, long wood dock, smaller floating dock, paver driveway and two-car garage. It s been a very comfortable residence, and so it could be for you! Ask your Realtor to show you this home today!"
