Waterfront charm nestled on nearly .60 acres on Gulf of Mexico Drive. This is a unique home built at a time when Longboat Key was just incorporated in the mid 1950's. The public beach access is 1 mile away. A boater's dream with a newly constructed nearly 90' seawall and a dock with connected boat lift. The wide canal connecting Millar Bay provides a scenic short excursion to Sarasota Bay for an enjoyable day. With its warm and welcoming environment, this mid-century modern home creates a unique opportunity. It is stepping back in time to an Old Florida lifestyle. Entering is breathtaking with the open plan, vaulted wood ceilings, living area, 40' lap pool and Harris Bay as the landscape. The outdoor area includes a large under-roof patio that is screened along with the pool. Two of the three guest bedrooms are ensuite. Renovations have occurred over the years to include adding a front porch and a 672' 2-car garage. The current kitchen was beautifully redesigned and porcelain tiles installed throughout the public rooms and much more. A piece of paradise with a lot that may provide a new construction opportunity in the future.
