Imagine the possibilities offered by this captivating, canal-front home...morning coffee while watching the shore birds from the master bedroom balcony...entertaining on the expansive paver-brick patio surrounding the pool...or enjoying an evening glass of wine poolside. This is a rare opportunity to own an exceptional 4 bedroom plus office, 5 ?? bath home situated on an amazingly-private, canal-front lot with natural, mangrove shoreline plus a dock with sailboat-water (no bridges) access to the Intracoastal Waterway, Tampa Bay & the Gulf of Mexico. Perfectly suited for entertaining, the bright, coastal-inspired kitchen is adorned with new LG stainless appliances, gorgeous cabinetry, countertops and travertine backsplash. The kitchen flows seamlessly to a great room featuring a stunning, coral fireplace and to the expansive outdoor living space through two sets of sliders. A dining/living room, 2 bedrooms (one with en-suite bath) and 2 full baths complete the main floor. You'll find the 2nd floor master retreat is an oasis for relaxation with a luxurious master bath, spacious, screened balcony plus attached office/den (with another full bath). The 2nd floor also features an additional guest bedroom & bath. Don't miss the spectacular 3rd floor bonus room surrounded by windows & perfect for enjoying the beautiful sunsets. This beautiful setting is lushly landscaped...a truly private sanctuary yet just a short stroll to the world-famous Anna Maria Island beach, the free trolley and several great restaurants.
