Info Visit Virtual Tour Search


This home is pink, and it’s pretty! If you are searching for a lovely home in a quiet neighborhood near the beach, and want a boat lift too, but don’t want the extra cost and upkeep of a canal home, this one’s for you. From the moment you step inside, you can feel the special nature of this home, loved and improved through decades by its current owners. From the spacious living/dining area through fully pocketing doors to the very large screened porch to the big back yard (room for a pool), it’s wide open to a cool cross-breeze. The kitchen, just to the right, has been updated efficiently, and features a new Frig. The utility room is just off the porch, with second refrigerator, new washer and dryer. You’ll love the upgrades: PGT windows, a new roof in ‘09, new AC ducting in ’14, large ceramic tile throughout, and a new dock at Boat Slip #30 with 6,000 pound boat lift (installed in ’13). In the master suite, you’ll enjoy the big bedroom and expanded bathroom, with seven-foot Jacuzzi tub, which has its own water heater. And there’s a big storage closet out back, under roof, for all your outdoor gear. It’s being offered as-is, furnished, less some personal property. You could easily move right in, and not need to bring anything but your swim suit and toothbrush. The right offer may even get you a boat: the 16-foot Gheenoe with four-stroke 15 hp Mercury engine. It’s available! Please, ask your Realtor to make an appointment to see this special home soon.
