“Twin Shores” cottage is a single-family home located on the north end of Useppa Island with stunning water views to both the east and west throughout the majority of it. Its Key West design and versatile floorplan would suit many who seek a true island home with the water in focus, and convenient dockage within reasonable reach of the most popular islands of southwest Florida. Its location on north Useppa Island is premier, as it provides for a duo of water views, sunrise and sunset, while being somewhat removed from the shoreline upon Useppa’s elevated ridgeline.
Ownership of this property comes with a dock slip located just outside the front door, in addition to cost-free dockage of a boat 24′ or less at the Useppa Marina, within sight to the rear. The dock slip is among a multi-slip shared dock, and interest in the shared dock association with the right to use/maintain a dedicated slip will convey to whomever buys Twin Shores. If desired, a new owner could install a boat lift at the dock slip. The cost-free use of the Useppa Marina for a boat 24′ or less is a right provided through the Useppa Island Club deed restrictions. It allows for first-come wet-slip use within a specific area of the marina dedicated to property owners.
One enters the primary living floor directly from Useppa’s historic Pink Promenade pathway, which is an elevated walking path overlooking Pine Island Sound. Through the entryway is the spacious living room, plenty large enough for comfortable seating and dining, with a dominating sunset view over the marina harbor. The well-appointed kitchen is offset from the living room and shares the same westerly water views. Astride that is a circular screened porch which overlooks the water to the east. The majority of the south side of this floor is occupied by two en-suite guest bedrooms, one with water views to the east and the other with water views to the west. The eastern guest room has direct access through French doors to the open-air front porch which overlooks the water of Pine Island Sound.
Saunter up the hardwood stairs to the Master Suite, which occupies the entirety of the uppermost living floor. Beyond the Master bed is an open walk-out balcony offering a birds-eye sunset view which spans over the Useppa Marina and beyond the Intracoastal Waterway to Cayo Costa State Park, with Boca Grande in the distance to the north. Adjacent the Master bed on the east side of the suite is a large office/study, which possesses a wealth of alternative potential, should one have no desire to work or study. The Master Bath occupies the northeast corner of the Master Suite, with jetted tub, separate shower and dual sinks.
A bonus space in form of an entirely independent guest suite offers private accommodation for friends or family. Complete with an en-suite bedroom, full kitchen, living room, laundry room and screened porch, your guests will be smitten. This space is located on the western side of the home and the views are of the marina harbor.
