"Location, location! Rarely available in Perico Shores, a small enclave of 9 homes, on a cul-de-sac near Anna Maria Island, Gulf beaches and bordering Robinson Preserve, with direct access to bike trails and nature walks. Shopping is just 2 miles east and 2 miles west, equidistant from Anna Maria and the mainland. The beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bath home has a bright open floor plan and an oversized 2 car attached garage. Features include 10 ft. ceilings, crown molding, lots of storage, central vacuum, hurricane shutters and Solar Defense film on windows. The kitchen was updated in 2008 and has stainless steel appliances fit for a chef, Corian countertops, extra large walk-in pantry and built-in cabinet/sideboard for dishes (makes for a nice coffee bar too). Tray ceiling in master bedroom and huge walk-in closet. Master bath has a garden tub with jets and separate shower. Gorgeous mahogany French doors with etched glass become illuminated at night, creating a very special atmosphere. Very large patio with pavers and decorative wall overlooks the wooded backyard, which borders Robinson Preserve. Great for entertainment! Oversized lot (0.42 of an acre) with oak trees and a variety of fruit - avocado, mango and grapefruit - for your enjoyment. Rainbird 6-zone sprinkler system. Quiet and private setting. A must see property!"
