The “Shell House” is situated in the tree-lined Buttonwood Harbour community on mid-Longboat Key, also referred to as Longboat Shores. The best of both worlds for waterfront living, this renovated residence features 100 feet of deep boating water and an easy stroll to the tranquil Gulf-front sandy beach with turquoise waters. With concrete block construction, PGT impact windows and sliders, new impact resistant garage door, recently inspected and repaired seawall, and a standing seam metal roof, this is the perfect retreat to enjoy year round or seasonally. And with an 11,508 SF lot, well positioned landscaping, and no neighbors on the other side of Longview Drive, there are serene and private views from every room. The expansive brick-clad circular driveway and portico provide a welcoming approach. Upon entering the home, you are greeted by a foyer with two storage closets and a comfortable 12’ x 7’ sitting area. With free-flowing and gracious living spaces, your gaze is drawn to the elegant dining room with new chandelier, open kitchen with modern cabinetry, a backsplash of shell with glass grout, and stainless appliances, and then captivated by the impressive living room with 10’ pitched ceilings overlooking the outdoor patio, peaceful canal, and lush landscaping both on this property and that of its neighbors. The tropical and relaxed oasis boasts tile floors throughout the home, welcoming sandy feet from a day of play or relaxing. The primary suite at the back of the home features a walk-in closet and bathroom with a gorgeous floating vanity, Robern luxury mirror and medicine cabinet with integrated lighting and electrical to keep your small grooming appliances charged, shower with beautiful glass stone flooring and wall detail, and a multi-function bidet lavatory seat. Ample light brightens the guest bedroom at the front of the home, separated from the primary suite for additional privacy. A stone soaking tub with exceptional heat retention is a striking centerpiece in the guest bathroom, also clad with modern cabinetry, Grohe fixtures, and a glass enclosed shower. The one-car garage has a freshly painted floor, workbench, hooks to suspend your bikes, and a door to the laundry room with utility sink and extra storage. Additional features include a 600 lb boat lift, freshly painted interior walls, efficient and quiet induction HVAC, tankless water heater, whole house surge protection, plumbing lines replaced with PVC and potable water lines moved to the attic. This home is ready for immediate enjoyment by its next owner. The Buttonwood Harbour community includes irrigation water in the low $600/year fee and also has a community dock with rental slips and a community boat launch. This coveted Longboat location is less than a mile from The Shoppes of Bay Isles, Publix, CVS, Longboat Key Fitness, the Post Office, and the Longboat Key Public Tennis Center.
