"The serene setting along the Heron Lagoon is the perfect backdrop for this Boca Grande Gasparilla Inn-like home. A feeling of tranquility, peace and quiet, yet moments to the world-class beaches of Siesta Key and the Sarasota lifestyle. Originally built in 1946 as a wonderful waterfront cottage, the home and property has been updated and expanded to include 3 BR/ 2 bath main house, separate office or studio with water views + an income producing, adorable waterfront 1B/ 1B apartment (additional 800 sq. ft of living space). Some of special features include Mexican tile and wood floors, gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings, wood-burning fireplace, large waterfront back porch, a party-sized front deck and 2 car garage. This is a very special property-it could be the ideal spot that will inspire you to relax and finally write that book or just hang out on the water s edge while watching the birds and kayakers until the nightly sunset."
