Here’s an “almost downtown” penthouse that makes an intriguing alternative to the high-rises in the downtown core. It’s on the southern edge, just across Mound Street (U.S. 41), adjacent to Selby Gardens, and it has an atmosphere that’s more “coastal vacation” than “urban chic.”
It’s in that attractive boutique-sized building (12 units) where the Orange Avenue bridge crosses Hudson Bayou. The biggest plus may well be its own boat dock, and there are no bridges to the bay and a very protected mooring. There's also a pool, your own cabana, and a two car garage.
Inside you’ll find three bedrooms and three baths in 2,500 square feet. The ceilings are high and high-end features abound—wainscoting, built-in bookcases, maple floor, plus a big kitchen with all the gizmos. From the terrace is a beautiful view of trees and water. It’s easily the equal of the downtown bay views, only more peaceful.
For a second home this place would be perfect. You’ve got a boat dock, you’re virtually downtown, yet it feels like a vacation in the tropics. And the adjacent neighborhood is one of the best in town.
The penthouse is priced at $1,985,000. For more information call Jennifer Linehan of Michael Saunders at (941) 266-7555.
