More to Say About Location!

I loved Lynn’s blog from March 14th.  I thought I would add to it with the beloved North Shore view.  North Shore views come at a higher price point but as far as price tags go this villa is very well priced.  The location is lower Peter Bay, the enchanting footpath to your beach is just a few steps away.  The house is magnificent, the decor is impeccable, french doors & fine finishings abound.  The dining and kitchen area is separated from the guest rooms and the main great room, this provides the perfect quiet scenario for the adult children with grandchildren and privacy for all of the adult guests.  Call Jane Kelly for a showing, 941.544.5855 or email me at  This villa is offered at 4.5M
