Create your very own Norman Rockwell life in this charming pool home, situated on over 5 acres in the highly desired, peaceful community of Englewood Farm Acres where many estate homes reside, and acreage is a requirement. When you arrive, the striking mature landscaping is reminiscent of Old Florida, providing both beauty and shade for those lazy afternoons in the hammock. As you walk through the screened entrance into the home, the natural light created by the large windows and flow of this retreat welcomes you. Wake to views of the sparkling pool and screened lanai through sliding glass doors in your master bedroom, complete with vaulted ceilings, a cedar lined closet and a classic stone fireplace. The split bedroom floor plan provides you and your guests privacy, and the large family/dining room is the perfect place to convene for morning coffee, featuring pool views framed by sliding glass doors. This particular lot is the ideal spot for your horses, saving you the costs of boarding, and giving you the pleasure of having them near. The road right behind the property leads to state and county riding trails with the Myakka River trails only about a mile away. The trails are marked and manicured and meander along the water for a beautiful ride! The slab for RV parking w/ electricity, room for your boat and toys, and newer roof and water heater provide the final touches. Private, yet near beaches, restaurants and golf courses, this home offers you a rare opportunity for the picture perfect life.
