This peaceful oasis is located on the Manatee River, with a private pier and direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Nestled on a large lot on historic 4th Street in Palmetto, this thoughtfully designed 5 bedroom home boasts magnificent views from every room and a large landscaped backyard area leading out to a private pier with boat lift and dock.
