Congratulations to our sellers on Longboat Key for the immense attention and quick contract on their meticulously renovated Whitney Beach cottage! This cottage is one of the original hand-cut cyprus cottages crafted in the 1930s as part of the Whitney Beach tourist resort that attracted visitors to Longboat Key's beautiful beach. The historical significance is complemented by the top-to-bottom renovation that the current owners undertook to preserve the character of the home while adding modern strength to the structure as well as every imaginable lifestyle luxury. The indoor space expands to an enormous deck surrounding a heated saltwater pool, with an enchanting natural landscape just beyond. With a private dock and boat lift, this waterfront home is a tropical paradise.
The history of the Whitney Beach cottages is significant to Longboat Key and to Sarasota's early tourism. Congratulations to our sellers and to the new buyers who will enjoy this picturesque retreat.
