This custom built house was constructed in 1984. Its external walls are 16" x 8" x 8" concrete blocks on which a 16 " ring beam of 3000 psi concrete was poured on top of the blocks. The rafters of the roof of the building are anchored to the ringbeam by metal straps with intervals of 24 ". The roof tiles and, other associated materials, were replaced three (3) years ago with asphalt tiles that carry a warranty of 40 years so, the roof is under warranty for 37 more years. This house is in excellent condition.
A 165' deep well, for irrigation purposes, was drilled and commissioned 20 years ago. The submersible pump was replaced for the first time, 6 months ago. The well provides the necessary water to irrigate the entire lawn through a 9 zone sprinkler system. Portable water is supplied by the Sarasota County.
There are 34 trees on this 1.10 acre corner property viz, 14 oak, 8 pine, 4 mango, 3 orange, 1 grapefruit, 1 tangelo, 1 tangerine, 1 lime and 1 persimmon. All of the fruit trees are fruit bearing.
