Welcome home to historic Florida, where community blends with lush, natural landscape and spectacular Manatee River views. This is one of the region’s first communities, which has a lovely old Florida feel, with cottages from the 1920’s sitting next to modern builds. Take a walk along the river for a beautiful, promenade-like setting. There are lots of green spaces with majestic oaks and tall palms. You will find your neighbors strolling the historic streets, fishing along the Riverwalk, and putting in kayaks and paddleboards. This is a rare hidden gem, with plenty of space and surrounding water views. Bring your boat and your toys as this home has no deed restrictions, and the Manatee Ave Boat Ramp is less than one mile away. This stunning custom remodel was built in 2006 with steel frame construction. Sunset walks along the Manatee River are right out your front door. Light and bright open kitchen, dining, and family room living area with sparkling water views throughout.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the first-floor terrace or second floor balcony as you watch the sun rise and laugh as the pelicans dive for fish.
