Rare Beach and Boating Lifestyle on Longboat Key. Stunning Gulf of Mexico vistas and deeded boat dock bay access across the road with a grandfathered boathouse. This three-story Key West home with elevator from Clifford M. Scholz architects truly represents the best of both worlds in an unbeatable location. Shielded by tropical greenery and a private gate on Gulf of Mexico Drive, this home lives like a private island getaway. Towering 19' elevation and concrete block construction by Perrone Builders. The four-bedroom home has been beautifully maintained by its owners and has consistently been updated throughout the years, both the exterior and interior. These include a new Metal roof, downspouts, and gutters (2018); New Impact windows and doors were replaced on the gulf side and automatic storm shutters on all other windows (2019). New pool gas heater and pump (2020). So much more. The kitchen is thoughtfully designed for the Chef in you with Sub Zero, New Viking double ovens, 6 burner gas cooking, Neff cabinetry with pullouts, large pantry space. The home is perfect for entertaining and everyday living. Dine alfresco on your open-air pool terrace with summer kitchen. The 2nd floor and 3rd floor terraces offer exquisite sunset viewing on the Gulf Coast. Private boathouse on the bayside of the island complete with new decking (to be installed in 2021), 10K-lb boat lift, two jet-ski pads, and water/electric. Bedrooms are generous in size, with a master inviting premier relaxation with breathtaking beach views and a spa-like bath. Part of this home’s appeal is its outstanding proximity to the world-renowned and exclusive sands of Longboat Key. A quick walk down your personal beach path takes you right to the water’s edge for a day in the sun and your outdoor shower is perfect for a quick cool down before sunset. Additional items of note in the home include a more than 2,600 square foot garage on the ground level ideal for a car collection, home gym or storage. Perfectly positioned on the island, the home is convenient to Anna Maria Island to north and Lido Key and St. Armands Circle to the south. See list of Improvements in attachments.
