Enjoy spectacular views of Lemon Bay from this 3 bedroom waterfront home and unique separate 2 bedroom guest suite. A sheltered boat dock with davits is located directly behind the home which allows quick access to the Bay in less than a minute. The original block and stucco home, with an expansive view across one of the widest sections of Lemon Bay (and most navigable,) features all terrazzo and tile floors, upgraded windows, large den/office and a huge screened lanai with a roof. It is a perfect spot to enjoy wildlife sightings and fabulous sunsets. A beautiful private guest area was added in 2007 above the garage. It features wood laminate flooring, cathedral ceiling, two bedrooms with closets, sitting and dining area, full bath and balcony. A serpentine brick paver sidewalk leads guests through a courtyard which affords a quiet retreat area. The 2 1/2 car garage provides ample room for two vehicles as well as a "shop" area, overhead storage and space for bicycles. There is room for a pool to be built on the "bayside" of the home. Close proximity to the water allows for fishing from the front yard or a quick launch of kayaks. From the convenient location of this home (on a private dead-end street) a public beach is less than 3 miles away. It has easy access (sidewalks all the way) to Old Englewood Village, Elsie Quirk Library, Farmer's Market and the Art Center. Don't miss this opportunity to truly "live on the water" in this "move in ready" home!

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
