A Hidden Gem on the Banks of the Phillippi

Wind down the oak treed-canopied lane ,just across 41 from The Landings, and you will be amazed to discover 2300 Wason Road. Sitting high and dry above Phillippi Creek, this property from which River Forest Subdivision was carved was once home to Former Congressman of New Hampshire Edward and Susan Wason in the 1940’s.


On 1.5 acres with 300 feet across the water, this picturesque property is laden with mature, specimen Oaks trees and Palms in all sizes and varieties. A perfect oasis for a hammock and a summertime nap.


In 1998, the current owner re-built and enlarged the home to create an ” Old Florida” rambling ranch including a metal roof, Hickory wood floors, fireplaces and screened porches. Entering into the nearly 600′ living/dining room with sets of French doors framing the magnificent yard, you immediately recognize that you are somewhere special. Where it is still quiet and peaceful but so very close to Publix and everyday life.

Boaters will love the property’s boat dock and lift and it’s close proximity to Sarasota Bay.
