Property Description

****HUGE PRICE REDUCTION**** Welcome to “A Time Out”, a unique historic home situated on the north end of Anna Maria Island just steps from Bean Point. The original 2-bedroom home was built in 1948 by the friends and family of Clarence Foley, a paralyzed Navy war veteran. Since then, locally recognized Gagne Construction has substantially renovated it. Gagne expanded it into the magnificent 4-bedroom, 2-bath coastal cottage you see here. From the front you are greeted by mature Sea Grape trees nestled in lush tropical vegetation. From the front porch rockers, you have peeks of Tampa Bay directly across the street. For the anglers, swimmers and sun lovers in your family, there are many walkable city access points to the waters of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Pine Avenue shopping is a leisurely walk away. Upon entering the home, the first thing that catches your eye is the view through the living room into the tropical oasis and pool beyond. The living room and dining room will be roomy and comfortable for you and your family. The kitchen was tastefully finished in muted colors, solid surface countertops and stainless-steel appliances. Two queen-sized bedrooms and a full bath with a large glass shower are located on the first floor. During the last renovation, a FEMA-approved second story was added. This upstairs addition offers two more bedrooms, a full bath with a tub, and a second lounging area with a TV to let the younger guests watch TV or play video games. There is also a small deck overlooking North Shore Drive with peeks of Tampa Bay. One upstairs bedroom features two built-in bunks with dedicated closets and a full-sized desk with a monitor. This is a perfect place to work or study remotely should you need it. The other bedroom has a queen-sized bed and its own closet/dressing room connecting to the bathroom. The home is sold turn-key furnished. The sellers will provide a list of items to be removed before closing. have saved the best for last. Let us go out to the backyard.
