New pricing, $300,000 less. A rare opportunity in paradise. Live in an historic waterfront estate on deep sailboat water, on the coveted north end of Siesta Key. This significant home in an historic neighborhood was originally built in 1917 by the mayor of Sarasota, Harry Higel. Impressive renovations and additions have been made through the years with special attention paid to the structure's original materials, environment and history. The home is beautifully maintained with a welcoming wide front porch, original pecky cypress walls and heart pine floors throughout, authentic moldings, fireplace and a "sleeping" porch, all which evoke a feeling of a time gone by. Cozy comfort, yet spacious, casual elegance, a perfect combination of old and new where one can easily entertain small, intimate parties or large numbers. The main house includes living and dining rooms, office, spacious island kitchen, family room, wine cellar and first-floor master suite with soaring ceilings. Upstairs are four bedrooms, baths and a family room. The separate guest "Lodge" was built in 1988 to complement the main house and offers a game room, bedroom, bath and sleeping loft over a two-car garage. The expansive waterfront backyard includes an oversized pool, a spectacular creeping fig tree and a boat dock and jet ski lift on the wide canal that connects Big Pass, the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay where dolphin, manatee and colorful sunsets are abundant. Minutes to Siesta Beach, Siesta Village and easy access to downtown Sarasota.
