100 years old, this is a piece of Bradenton history. Maybe Al Capone walked these grounds. The Braden Castle (yes there are actually ruins of the original Braden Castle) sits on the Manatee River, boat dock available for $200 a year, private boat slips for rent and the private boat ramp with easy access to the Manatee and Braden Rivers on the way to the Gulf of Mexico. 700' fishing pier, 55+, recreation center, library, pool table, work out in the exercise room, shuffleboard and a community owned cottage. There is a community newsletter and community calendar which will keep you up to date with all the many activities This is a golf cart friendly community. The entire community is on the National Register of Historic Places, originally established by the Tin Cup Campers in the 1920's. Over the years most homes have been passed on to family members and are rarely available. Would you need a face lift at 100? well so does this. Original wood floors are in the home. New gas water heater. This home is sold as is, where is, yes it needs to be updated - or Braden Castle updated. But if you sit in the front room you can watch the birds and you have a beautiful view of the pond and wildlife that wanders through. You must be an owner for 3 years before you can lease the property and at least one tenant must be 55 years or older.
