Boater's dream home in Braden River Lakes on the Braden River with private boat dock. When you step out into your back yard, you'll be struck with the serene beauty and million dollar waterfront views of the Braden River. The mangroves located just across the river allow for a secure sense of privacy. The Braden River connects to the Manatee River from which you can access Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. 35 minutes out to the Gulf of Mexico with one small bridge (not for sail boats). Granite kitchen, pendant lighting, the entire rear of the home is open to the lanai, pool, river and nature view! The highly desirable southwestern rear exposure positions the home perfectly to yield those vibrant sunsets that Florida is famous for. Braden River Lakes is located only a short distance to all of the best destinations at your fingertips: world-renowned beaches, downtown Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, quick access to I-75, the lively art scene and incredible cuisine, to name a few.
