NO FLOOD INSURANCE REQUIRED! This beautiful West of Trail home comes with friendly neighbors, wide sidewalks & a very large lot. Seven houses away is Sarasota Bay & its dazzling, magnificent sunsets. Just minutes to both downtown Sarasota and Bradenton, Lido Beach and the shops of St. Armands Circle. The neighborhood will impress you with its variety of homes, some built as early as the 1920's & continuing on to the most recent contemporary ones under construction today. No cookie cutter homes here! The front of the home is inviting with its covered porch, the huge backyard has two storage sheds, is beautifully landscaped & fully fenced. The screened pool was installed in 2003, the Rain Bird controller in 2017 & the metal roof in 2004 providing a 12' attic. Although the home was built in 1949, it has an effective date of 1966 due to upgrades to the electrical system, the addition of an air conditioning system & the sewer lines being upgraded to PVC. The irrigation system utilizes well water for low cost watering of the lush landscaping. Inside the home, the floor plan is fluid & can be adapted to your needs. A true split plan, the single bedroom at one end of the house can be used as a private suite with it's own entrance or as a master bedroom. The flexibility of usage of the other rooms is a big plus as they can be changed as your needs change. The kitchen is enormous, providing an eat-in area and storage that chef's can only dream of having. You need to see this home & make it your own.
