Hi, I’m Bruce Myer with Coldwell Banker.

I want to introduce you to our brand new listing at 1918 harbourside drive townhouse #902 fairway bay is the name of the community and if there’s any place on longbow key I know extremely well it’s fairway bay and that the first residence I ever owned was number 1401 over by the community swimming pool here back in the early 80s here for seven or eight years and with that being said I have been in probably every single town home in mid-rise in fairway bay and I will tell you this is the nicest townhouse of its kind I have ever ever been in so once you follow me upstairs we’ll take a look so now we’re on the first living level and the detail work here is so much you can’t even really describe it all one thing of course being a wine lover you know look how they creatively put in a kind of a a wine rack here the other thing that is really really neat now look at this it’s a you know it looks like a bookshelf but then when we open this up and we’ve got coat closet and storage now that is creative so then as we come through and notice how it’s all open even the ceiling treatments that that were done and the secret to this home it the owner is a designer and she’s very very very talented.

Then as we come out this way and this is the very best townhouse building in fairway bay it is the only one that is directly on the bay all the other buildings look back and forth at a home or on the road so this is a direct direct bay front and we’ll step outside here and then we’ll take a quick peek and if you look at that this is a navigable channel and you’re going to get some wildlife some birds some um you know then we’ll have some manatees that will be coming through periodically and that is downtown Sarasota a little bit to our right going that way another really really really important feature is that this townhouse has its own private dock see where it says private dock 902 so we get this portion right through here as you can see the current owner has his own boat now we can house up to about a mid 30-foot boat here and the beam actually can be pretty wide with the tie-up pilings that are out this way so this is an extremely special feature tough to find your own own boat slip especially with the residents that’s in this price range I’m Bruce Myer with Coldwell Banker see you on the key.
