Canal waterfront home along the Manatee River with a Trex boat dock and a quality IMM Alumavator vertical boat lift rated for 10,000 lbs. A standard 27 ft V-hull boat was stored on this lift for size reference. You will love the serene water view and your private boat dock right in your own back yard! A new Trex dock was installed in 2017 with a bench for enjoying the view or to drop a fishing line in hopes of catching redfish, snook, snapper or other sport fish. If you love the water then you will love the sights, sounds & smell of the salty air.

The home is a beautiful reverse floor plan with all the living spaces facing the waterfront. There is a sliding glass door from the living room to the large wood deck (8 x 24) with full water view. There is a 12 x 12 block patio and Florida landscaping. The canal borders the community Micro Forest so it is an open, pristine view of natural Florida habitat. You can see fish jumping, occasional manatees and a variety of water fowl such as pelicans, herons & cranes as well as eagles and ospreys hunting for their next meal.

Two BEDS/Two BATHS plus a flexible use Florida room that has a private entrance from deck. The home is offered partially furnished with some turnkey supplies. Plenty to spend your very first night in paradise!
