RARE, RARE, RARE, pristine Cottage by the sea. Located across the street from Dona Bay and 1 mile from Nokomis Public Beach, this 1954 Cottage has been loving & expertly restored and immaculately cared for. The compound includes a one bedroom one bath, very private Cottage, an expansive lanai leading to an inviting and serene pool & spa area, which gives way to air-conditioned craftsman’s workshop where much of the Cottage transformation has taken place. The two-car oversized garage was converted to the workshop (not counted in the linear space), but there is covered parking for 4 vehicles, and the workshop could be reconverted to a garage. Completing the compound, is a two-bedroom one bath guest house with kitchen added above the garage, perfect for a family member or an adult child now living back at home. The expansive backyard offers lots of privacy, and room to park your boat, if you so choose. The Cottage features tongue & groove pine paneled ceilings and walls, tile throughout, walk-in closet in bedroom, a lovely galley kitchen with butcher block countertops and marble mosaic backsplash, KitchenAid and Kenmore appliances, and brand-new LG refrigerator. A beautiful sunroom, currently being used as the dining area, restful completely refurbished side porch, a welcoming gazebo and more. Lanai was painted & pool deck was resurfaced in 2020, pool pump new in 2017 and filter replaced 2018. Cottage roof replaced in 2016, A/C in Cottage replaced in 2010. The guest house features two more bedrooms, kitchen, bamboo floors, Bahama shutters. Roof replaced in 2013, A/C replaced 2011. The exterior was re-stuccoed and painted in 2020. There is nothing left to do but enjoy this peaceful respite. If you are in the mood for a stroll, take a short walk to the park at the end of the street which affords kayak & canoe access to the intracoastal waterway and an inviting spot to watch the sunset. The charm of this lovely compound is indescribably. You simply must see it for yourself.
