Welcome to Manasota Key, one of the Gulf Coast's best kept secrets. Nestled on one-and-a-half lots, and just one parcel away from the sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico, this “old Florida” island cottage offers endless warm Gulf breezes by day and magnificent sunsets by night. Ample natural light pours through the windows of the Florida room, which offers an impressive partial view of the Gulf of Mexico. Don’t let the square footage fool you, the livable area of this home comes out to 1,152 sq ft, which makes for comfortable interior living. The fully fenced backyard includes a wood deck, perfect for entertaining guests. Store all your toys and beach equipment in either of the outdoor sheds. Head over to the beach to visit the dolphin and manatee playground, and rinse off at the fully enclosed outdoor shower before heading back in. This home offers so many opportunities for owners; use it as your personal escape, rent it out and enjoy a great potential stream of income, or build your own beach house, or any combination of the three - this property offers you outstanding flexibility just off the beach! The south end of Manasota Key is where you’ll find miles of sandy beaches to explore, including Stump Pass Beach State Park, less than 1-mile away. Of course you will want to visit one of the numerous restaurants on the Island to experience the Key's sumptuous local fare, all approximately 1/2 mile to the north. Don't wait, come see for yourself what beach life is all about!
