This open-style two bedroom/two full bath ranch (limit four people) sits on half an acre of pines, palms and landscaped flowering bushes at the end of a quiet dead-end street in the historic “Old Florida” Cape Haze area of Englewood. The home is a three-block, five-minute walk from the Lemon Bay Water Taxi to the Rum Bay restaurant and the Car/Bike Ferry to Palm Island, and a short fifteen-minute drive to the pristine Englewood beaches on Manasota Key or Boca Grande beaches on Gasparilla Island. Filled with contemporary art and furniture and painted in bright south-of-France colors, 7037 Duke Street is a peaceful and charming haven to come home to after a day exploring the mostly tourist-free, state-park rich Englewood area. The front porch is screened-in to catch the beach breezes (and keep out the bugs), and the ultra-clean five-foot deep bobbing pool outside the primary bedroom is surrounded by smooth pavers for your feet and multiple chairs and tables for sitting or sunbathing. There is also an outdoor shower for washing off after a day at the beach, and plenty of room on the side of the house to park a boat or RV. The home is in a central location to access downtown Venice (and its beaches) 20 miles to the north (and Sarasota just a bit farther), Punta Gorda 25 miles to the east, and Fort Myers (and its beaches, + Sanibel and Captiva) 50 miles to the south, and even Orlando 150 miles to the northeast.
