About 616 Hillcrest Drive

Under contract-accepting backup offers. Incredible waterfront opportunity! A Warner Bayou gem including a dock AND covered boat lift is a truly exceptional find! In the sought-after Northwest Bradenton neighborhood of Harbor Hills, you'll be amazed by the water views and the easy boating access directly from your dock to Anna Maria Island, or take a short cruise into the Manatee River or Tampa Bay to fish or just relax (bridge clearance is approx. 10 ft). This home's prime location on the widest part of Warner Bayou East is a highly desirable spot because the property lines extend across Hillcrest Drive to the exclusive deeded dock, creating an expansive setting with valuable riparian rights and no leasing fees due on the submerged land. THIS HOME IS IN FLOOD ZONE "X," so you do NOT pay flood insurance AND any future improvements are NOT restricted by the FEMA 50% rule! The neighbors include 4 local builders who could obviously live anywhere from the Gulf to the Bay, but choose to live here on the Bayou! It's a natural, mangrove-lined waterfront without an expensive sea wall to maintain. The oversized 800-sq. ft. dock with 10,000-lb. lift features an Old Florida boathouse-style cover, reflecting the home's classic character and highlighting its curb appeal. The extra-deep attached garage can accommodate a boat trailer up to 23 ft, also providing extra door height for larger vehicles, plus overhead storage. The 59th Street boat ramp is conveniently around the corner whenever you want to pull your boat out. In this nature-lovers' dream home, from your front windows you can watch dolphins and manatees swim into the Bayou to play! Designed to maximize water views, the entire home is full of natural light from walls of windows on the northeast and southwest sides overlooking the Bayou in front and the lagoon-style pool in back, plus 3 sets of French doors and 4 skylights. You'll enjoy sunrise over the Bayou with morning coffee on the porch, and sunset with cocktails on the screened pool deck! This wonderfully spacious, single-story ranch has been expanded to blend its traditional features with transitional-style updates including vaulted ceilings and open gathering areas. The inviting kitchen with large pantry, breakfast bar, storage island and double ovens, flows to a tremendous family room with wood-burning fireplace and plenty of entertaining space. In addition there's a huge bonus room, currently used as an office, that can be closed off from distractions during zoom meetings, or can be opened up as an extension of the family room for hobbies, projects and games. Speaking of spacious, in the dining room you can host a sit-down dinner for 8 comfortably! Everyone will appreciate their own retreat in 3 bedrooms en suite, plus a true 4th bedroom with large closets currently used as a den/study, and a 4th full bath. Harbor Hills is a peaceful, established neighborhood of full-time residents. It's a short drive over the Palma Sola Causeway to Anna Maria Island's world-class beaches. Ride bikes in nearby Robinson Preserve, and make a quick trip to downtown Bradenton for shopping and nightlife in the Riverwalk district. The Bradenton Country Club and St. Stephen's School are nearby. This is the only home currently available on East Warner Bayou -- don't wait!
