There’s still a trace of Old Florida in this island town.

Old rural Florida is getting harder and harder to find, but there is still a beautiful piece of it up in Terra Ceia. Located just north of Palmetto and just south of the Skyway bridge, Terra Ceia is technically an island about three miles long and about one mile wide, connected to the mainland by three short bridges.
560 Bayshore Drive
And here is my favorite. Located at 31 Boots Point Road, it’s a 1974 home built on a spectacular half acre of land, with picture-perfect views of the water, stretching off to the Skyway bridge. The home itself is nice, about 2,000 square feet, a little smaller and less grand than most of its neighbors, but the setting, views and total privacy make it a real find. All this for $799,000.
