ADVANTAGEOUS VENICE ISLAND LOCATION Our contemporary open split floor plan design home, which was built in 1984, is conveniently located across the Venezia Park on Venice Island within close distance to the beach, downtown, restaurants, shops, banks and entertainment venues. You can bike everywhere on and around Venice Island along the Intracoastal Waterway Park and even to Sarasota along the Legacy Trail. The main house (2,048 sq ft) has two master suites, a guest bedroom/office and two bathrooms and a half sitting on one side of the heated pool whereas the mother-in-law suite comprised of a bedroom, a full size bathroom and a walk-in closet, occupies a separate building (400 sq ft) on the other side of the pool. The central area of the house including a dining room facing the front yard, a living room facing the pool and a huge family room with cathedral ceilings next to the kitchen with stainless steel appliances is the open space to entertain guests. Ceramic tiles laid in a diagonal pattern cover the floor throughout the house except in the bedrooms where the flooring is carpet. The laundry room is located adjacent to the attached insulated and air conditioned two car garage. The gross area under roof is 3,036 sq ft. A park-like landscaping surrounds the whole compound (9,100 sq ft). The center piece of the front yard is a Royal Poinciana tree surrounded by fragrant Crinum Lilies which flower throughout the year whereas a mature mango tree, a banana tree and a fruit bearing Papaya tree are in the backyard surrounded by more Crinum Lilies. The fiberglass pool (which requires only a small amount of chemicals for maintenance) with the surrounding concrete deck and the aluminum screened enclosure were added in 2005. The mother-in-law suite was finished in 2006. The new double pane tempered glass windows were installed in 2010. The siding of the front of the house was replaced in 2010. A whole house water filtration system was installed in 2014. A new AC system was installed in 2019. The main house has also a central vacuum cleaner system, which eliminates the noise and the exhausted dusted air inside the house. In 2021 the City of Venice was ranked a “Best Beach Town to Live In” in a study from personal finance website WalletHub, coming in at #14 on a list of 191 cities and No. 3 in a listing of 100 popular destinations among those looking to relocate conducted by MoveBuddha, which provides moving estimates and in 2015 was recognized as one of the two top “Happiest Coastal Towns” by the “Coastal Living" magazine.
