A place where magical memories can be made, this islandside Manasota Key beachfront oasis exudes the perfect balance between absolute privacy, picturesque views and a resort-like setting. Manasota Key, known as the Southern sister to Casey Key, stretches 11 miles long and offers an optional Beach Club membership. Established in 1960, it has delighted owners, visitors and their guests with its traditional Florida charm, now rare to find. Guests can stay in one of the many little cottages onsite, weddings can be hosted there, and fine dining can be enjoyed on the sprawling 20 acres of its canopied beachfront property from mid November through the end of April each year. This custom contemporary home, built by area’s well known Dick Yusk, is a very unique opportunity that has been enjoyed by these original owners. With 100 feet of beach frontage {535 feet deep on the South side property line, 550 feet deep on the North line} and on a total of 1.245 acres of land. No rocks, no steep steps, just an easy walk out to one of the widest and most abundant parts of Manasota Key Beach! An incredibly welcoming entrance that’s full of lush, mature and dense landscaping will greet you as the home slowly reveals itself to you. Old banyan, cedar and palm trees among others exude the truly Florida lifestyle you’ll appreciate when viewing the grounds. Lovingly cared for, the estate features a soaring entryway with grand storefront double pane windows throughout that bring in an abundance of natural light. Enjoy the main home’s 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms total. Downstairs features Egyptian marble flooring, while the sprawling upstairs master suite and ensuite bathroom offers large his & hers closets and opens to an impressive balcony where one can enjoy the sound of the Gulf of Mexico waves and the azure water views. Impressive formal living room that centers around an exquisite limestone and brass mantle for its wood burning fireplace. The downstairs bedroom could be converted into a 1st floor master suite if needed, complete with large walk-in closet, and again impressively large windows that face the beach! Side-entry three car garage, equipped with attic storage that also houses the home’s screens and hurricane shutters. Wait until you see the quaint separate guest studio that mimics the main home in its style and even has its own wood burning fireplace of its own! Rinse off from a day at the beach either in the studio apartment, that is complete with a 1-room studio layout and full bathroom. The total property offers 5-beds/4.5baths! Watch the nightly sunsets while dining alfresco from your main level patio or create a mesmerizing private dining experience right on your private beach! If you elect to join the optional Manasota Beach Club, located at 7660 Manasota Key Rd, you’ll have the opportunity to meet your neighbors by way of swimming in the year round heated community pool, playing on either the clay or synthetic grass tennis courts, utilizing the club’s kayaks, paddleboards, pickleball, shuffleboard, using the Key’s private day dock on Lemon Bay across the street, meandering through the nature trails around the beautiful grounds or by picking up shells along its quarter mile beach frontage. Meticulously maintained, very pet friendly neighborhood, non deed restricted, with optional HOA and no CDD fees, this property is a pleasure to see and to show.
