Your piece of Gulf Coast paradise awaits in this fully furnished Veranda condo at River Strand Golf and Country Club in Bradenton, Florida. This first-floor unit offers 1,561 square feet of living space centered around an open living-dining area that overlooks a pond-lined fairway and an adjacent wooded preserve along the Manatee River. It has a formal dining area for entertaining guests as well as an informal breakfast nook. The master bedroom suite, which includes its own full bath and two closets, is tucked away from the living area. Across the main hallway is a second bedroom with access to a separate full bath. A den just off the living area has a queen-size sleeper sofa with an air mattress. There are 2 lanais, one at the entry way and another lanai facing out to the golf course.
Parking is never a problem with the detached single-car garage right outside the front of this unit and additional space across from the driveway. From the comfort of the living area, you can enjoy the big-screen TV with soundbar or kick back on the reclining couch for a snooze after a round of golf or a day on the tennis or pickle ball courts in this highly active community.
This unit, known as the Dogwood, has been upgraded by the current owners to include vinyl plank flooring that replaces all carpeting, new lighting in the kitchen and dining areas, a travertine tile backsplash behind the stove, a custom master-bedroom closet, and a whole-house dehumidifier installed in 2017 with a five-year warranty. Plus, the condo has been completely repainted with neutral tones throughout.
