Property Description 210 Old Venice Road, Osprey, FL 34229
Rare find!* 1.2 acre ranch home in the center of town. Yes, in town, not east of the interstate or way down south. *NO HOA, *NO CDD, *NO FLOOD insurance needed and *NO Deed Restrictions! Build that garage you've always wanted, or even work from home. There is room for it! This is a masonry block/brick *4 bedroom, *2 bath, country style homestead on a concrete slab with vented crawlspace and access. Walking distance to Pine View school, Wal-Mart, Osprey Post Office, and Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic church. Osprey is right between Sarasota and Venice, so just minutes from everthing including multiple beaches and the *Legacy Trail* down and around the corner. If you searching for a remodled/updated home with a fancy pool, stainless appliances, granite counters and new floors, ... keep looking, because this isn't it. But, if you like a country feel, room for your boat, RV, trailer/s and privacy, and are ok with a gravel driveway, come take a look as this could be for you! This is not a fixer upper unless you want it to be, as there is a big difference between wants and needs. You may have visions of doing a lot, but this doesn't need a lot. This is a well operating home in good shape that you can live in immediately with rebuilt sliders, new paint, fans, bedroom carpet, lighting, disposal, Hardee Plank gables, gutters, soffit, fascia, 3 exterior doors, porch screens, porch ceilings, and more. This may have the look and feel of a 70/80's home, but it's very comfortable with large rooms and 3 porches, (1 open, 1 covered, and one large screened) and lots of *room for a pool*. Lots of closets and storage space too* which you don't get with many newer homes. The bedroom/*office off the master also has it's own entrance from front porch* (great for clients), and the kitchen window has a pass through to rear lanai bartop. This home has a great split floorplan to fit many remodling ideas you may have and a family room that is 28x13!! Ping pong/billiards etc! Attached is a 20' deep 2.5 car garage with an electric opener, work bench and wash sink. Detached barn is an 18x18 unit on a concrete slab, w/electric, and barn doors on back for equipment access. This home is connected to county water, and on septic so you aren't paying for high sewer charges. 2003 A/C blows cold and roof is 2011. One Mango tree gives quite a bit of fruit once a year, and beautiful oak trees shade many parts of this easy to maintain property. If you are looking for a forever piece of homestead property in town to enjoy for many years, this will probably fit the bill. This is a great home, completely funtional. Buy today, move in tomorrow type property. If you get focused on thinking you have to update everything right away, you may talk yourself right out of a forever home opportunity! Remember, you don't have to do everything in the first week, as you can make it your own over time. Come in person to view this, because you will not find a large selection of these "in town acreage" type properties on the market, guaranteed! Thanks for looking. Room sizes are close approximates, buyer to verify. Furnishings may be different than pictured.
