About This Property

This charming waterfront home, built in 1950, is in one of Longboat Key’s most exclusive and gated neighborhoods—Bayou Hammock and is a proud example of “Old Florida” craftsmanship and elegance. From the circular driveway, a curved path leads you to the front door where you are greeted by original Southern pine floors, built in book shelves and cabinets, wood beamed ceilings, newer kitchen appliances, lots of flexible space and windows galore to take in the really beautiful wide-open water views that entice you to relax and enjoy the casual lifestyle the north end of Longboat Key offers. Though renovated in the past, the character and charm of this home have been maintained to create a welcoming retreat. Nestled among magical, tropical Florida foliage on almost one acre and 150 ft on Bishop’s Bayou with direct access to Sarasota Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway, this unique home is a “must see”. Enjoy your morning coffee sitting on the expansive deck and listen to the ospreys soar overhead or the mullet jump or sometimes even a dolphin or manatee or two pass by. There are many year-round outdoor possibilities with the caged, oversized heated salt water pool, several outdoor very special entertaining areas, a dock and boat lift and even a kayak. Plus there’s a 3 car (air conditioned) garage with storage galore. It is only a short bike or car ride to the beautiful beach at the Broadway access or into Sarasota or St Armand Circle or Bradenton for cultural activities, shopping and restaurants.
