SOLD! 11/16/2015 This original 1955 cypress home, in the gated north Manasota Key area on over an acre of gulf-to-bay property, is classically representative of the homes developed here in the 1950s.

A raised boardwalk takes you over protected vegetation to the gulf and walkable beachfront. A lighted boat dock on the bay includes a hoist for your boat and easy access to the Intracoastal and Lemon Bay.
