Once in a lifetime opportunity to own your own a piece of Bradenton history. Attention history lovers, visionaries and builders. Now is your chance to own this never before offered custom built 7,000+ sf Mid-Century Modern home on nearly 8 acres with over 600’ of boat-able water frontage. Built in 1954, this home is a piece of Americana. The original owner was the developer for several historic Bradenton landmarks and the legendary Howard Johnson hotels. He designed this home in homage of these iconic hotels. If you are looking for a unique home, love Mid-Century Modern homes, or looking for a large private waterfront estate, then this is the home for you. After a match on the tennis court, spend your evening relaxing by the pool watching the sunset over the river while enjoying a glass of wine from your personal wine cellar. On the weekends boat, kayak or fish right from your back yard. No more going to the marina. Looking for an equestrian estate? There’s a horse barn. Want a workshop, parking for the toys, boat, and RV? Got that too. All of this located on a secluded 7.8 waterfront acres overlooking the Braden River with sweeping views. Short boat ride to the Manatee River and to the Gulf. Quietly tucked away from the world but only miles from the beaches, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch or Sarasota. Your own private country estate hidden in town. No HOA or CDD fees. Possible to parcel off two additional lots as currently zoned w/potential to rezone for additional lots. Do not miss this rare opportunity!
