About 900 Oxford Drive

This charming waterfront home showcases some of the most breathtaking views of Gottfried Creek and the mangroves while evoking a sense of nostalgia from all who enter, with its undeniably 'Old Florida' vibe. Here, beautiful sunsets set the stage to welcome evenings of uninterrupted stargazing. Surrounded by lush mangroves, you can kayak to Lemon Bay or launch your flats boat from your private 8500 lb lift and meander under one bridge to Lemon Bay, with the crystalline blue waters of the ICW and Gulf of Mexico just fifteen minutes beyond. Life here presents the opportunity to slow down and experience birding, fishing, and kayaking with this vibrant ecosystem steps from your back door, where the daily rhythm of the tide sets the pace and views of Osprey and Heron are frequent. Open the door to this cozy coastal cottage and find an open floorplan that is light, airy, and washed in sunlight. With its classic 'Boos Block' butcher block countertop accentuating the breakfast/prep bar, the kitchen flows effortlessly into the main living area, where plantation shutters further enhance the 'Old Florida' ambiance. Ceramic tile flooring keeps everything tidy while sliding doors gracefully integrate the indoor and outdoor living areas by opening to 1000 sq. ft. of screened lanai, a second-floor deck, and a first-floor paver sun patio with a tranquil view of Gottfried Creek as a backdrop. The primary bedroom is just off the main living area, with a walk-in closet and doors leading to the lanai. A nearby bathroom offers dual sinks and a walk-in shower, and an additional linen closet in the hallway is equipped with a safe. A spiral staircase leads you downstairs to a laundry room, an office/den, a secondary bathroom, and a guest bedroom that comfortably accommodates friends and family. The resident hobbyist will appreciate the 860 sq. ft. air-conditioned insulated garage with an epoxy floor in the workshop area with ample storage for two cars, bicycles, and gear. Other notable amenities include a metal roof, new gutters and soffits, hurricane shutters, a 240 sq. ft. storage shed, an outdoor shower and hot tub, an additional half-bath for use when coming in after a fun-filled day on the water, an internet thermostat with phone app control, a Schlage smart front door combo-lock, a 5-camera security system with DVR, a Sony amp with six hard-wired speakers, a separate fish cleaning hut with boat gear storage, a storage shed, a sun patio, a fire pit, and a freight ELEVATOR. Since the home sits upon a lot that is zoned RSF5, allowing up to 5 units per acre, you can add a cottage for guests. This home is in a desirable location near downtown. It is a cozy, peaceful gathering place for family and friends, where a short ride from your private dock will lead you directly to Lemon Bay, the ICW, and the Gulf of Mexico, and the home's Western exposure provides spectacular sunset views nightly. Nearby Dearborn Street, in Englewood, offers various unique shops, excellent eateries, and a lovely outdoor amphitheater. Residents and guests regularly delight in the fresh produce and unique offerings at the ever-expanding farmer's markets on Dearborn Street. The pristine beaches on Manasota Key are within a short (approximately 6-minute) drive. This home is the perfect setting for creating your very own picture-perfect memories.
