Dreams do come true. Over 1-acre of pristine Gulf-front property on one of southwest Florida’s most stunning private beaches in the Coastal Hammock area of Manasota Key. A canopy of swaying palms and old-growth oaks watch over as you drive or bike the Hammock area of the Key. Preserved and protected from the sprawl of development and condominiums, the Hammock area offers glimpses of hidden beachfront and bayfront homes on their 1+ acre parcels. The privacy of the beach is only interrupted by the sounds of the surf, the occasional nesting sea turtle, or a pod of dolphins passing by. This property offers 100’ of private Gulf frontage, stunning views, and an expansive, well-protected natural beach. Unique and unlike many other Gulf-front parcels, this is one of the few Gulf-front parcels that still owns its beach. While many other Gulf-front properties gave up property rights in years past, this property has retained its full beach rights. With its well-protected natural beach, this is one of the few Gulf-front properties that owns the sand right up to the high-tide line - assuring the utmost in privacy. The building footprint is estate size, offers amazing Gulf, beach, and sunset views and the owner’s design includes a Gulf-front resort-style pool and spa. Or design your own custom home. Either way, the current owners have completed much of the preliminary work including boundary & topographic survey by DMK Engineers & Surveyors, soil tests by Ardaman & Associates and the home was designed by renowned coastal architect Diane Weinmann. The Coastal Hammock section of Manasota Key is one of the few unspoiled natural and private Gulf-front stretches anywhere in south Florida – a walk back in time yet only minutes to the restaurants, shops, theatres, and entertainment venues of Venice, Englewood, and Sarasota and less than an hour to the Fort Myers, Punta Gorda, and Sarasota International airports. In a few hours from almost anywhere, you can find yourself lulling the days away at your private beach oasis – a slice of paradise all to yourself. If your dreams include beachfront privacy where you still own your beach, in an easily accessible old-Florida natural setting – yet only minutes to restaurants, shops, theatres, and nearby airports - then this Manasota Key parcel is the beginning of your dream.
