793 Jungle Queen

This charming, canal front Key West Style home has four generous bedrooms and three baths and is located mid Longboat Key on a quiet street on a 150' Wide lot with mature landscape, just three homes in from the bay. This custom-built residence was thoughtfully designed by a top architect for the current owner and fully exemplifies the island lifestyle with maintenance free Hardi board siding, extensive wraparound porch and Barbados style railings. Plantation shutters abound throughout the home which enhance the island lifestyle and provide shade throughout on hot sunny days. The beveled glass entry door with sidelights leads into the grand living room with 22 ft. ceilings, wood-burning fireplace and large staircase, leading upstairs to bedrooms which have balconies for relaxing in the private natural setting. The main living level is open and has a spacious kitchen outfitted with an island and prep sink, stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, dual pantries, and two separate dining areas. The downstairs has a comfortable den for watching TV or reading a book and an office/bedroom with full bath. Upstairs is the spacious owner's suite with two walk-in closets and two sets of glass French doors which lead out to an expansive, private covered balcony with island style hammock overlooking the pool below. The owner's bathroom has classic limestone floors, dual sinks with a soaking tub and separate glass enclosed shower. The two guest bedrooms feature a shared bathroom and a laundry area. The home features beautiful wide plank hardwood, travertine tile flooring, French doors, window seating, wood shutters, 8 ft doors, custom lighting, custom bathroom tile, and plenty of storage. Custom built in 2007 with concrete blocks covered with hardi board siding, hurricane impact windows, doors and standing seam metal roof. Outside there is a large, heated pool and spa, in an intimately landscaped two-story screened enclosure with convenient pavered walkway to a composite dock for a boat or for your kayak or paddleboard. The pavered driveway leads to a large two car garage that includes an air-conditioned closet. The home has deeded access to a pristine private beach across the street. The neighborhood has an optional HOA and even allows monthly rentals which is not as common on the key. Very close to some of Longboat's top restaurants and the Cedars Tennis Resort and Club.
