A cozy property right on the bay
31 Heron Drive is located on the west side of Tarpon Lagoon, with the gorgeous bay situated right in the backyard. With such a great location and plenty of interior space, this home is a great choice for families.
This property features four ample bedrooms and three full bathrooms. Three of 31 Heron Drive’s bedrooms, including the master, offer sweeping views of the bay beyond—making them excellent places to wake up in every single morning. The master bedroom also has direct deck access, so you don’t have to go far to take in that bay breeze.
The home boasts hardwood floors throughout, and a semi-open floor plan that makes great use of every square foot. Additional interior features include a family room with an adjacent wet bar on the first floor, and a beautiful masonry fireplace in the main living room, plus a dining area adjoining a galley kitchen with sophisticated wood cabinetry.
As a major bonus, 31 Heron Drive comes fully furnished! It’s ready to go for the summer season, so turn the key, slip on a pair of sandals, and enjoy all that the bay has to offer.
Make the bay your backyard
There’s nothing quite like having the bay so close, and 31 Heron Drive certainly makes full use of that fact. You’ll find sweeping views of the water and salt meadows from many of the home’s interior rooms, and it only gets better when you head outside. The rear sundeck overlooks a beautiful grass yard and provides access to a screened-in porch for inclement weather days. The property is fenced along the bulkhead and features beautiful natural landscaping complemented by a built in sprinkler system so you can spend less time watering your plants and more time enjoying your summer.
Parking is a cinch at 31 Heron Drive, with a detached garage and available off street parking for at least two cars. Marine facilities include a newer bulkhead and two boat slips (one with a lift), plus lots of floating docks for transient mooring. There’s truly nothing more that you need for casual living right on the water.
Your new home awaits
