The foyer entryway greets you with gleaming hardwood floors, which continue to all levels. The first floor of living area boasts an open and expansive floor plan with a combination dining and kitchen area, a living room with a custom entertainment center, powder room, and 2 private balconies to watch sunsets. The gourmet kitchen has custom white cabinets with an ornate glass backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and oversized island with seating for four. Striking modern chandeliers soar above both the kitchen and the dining area. All three bedrooms are positioned on the third floor. The master suite has double closets, an en-suite bath and a private terrace with glass sliders overlooking the pool and Gulf. The 2nd bedroom has a walk-in closet & a private terrace. The 3rd bedroom is currently being utilized as an office and shared full bathroom with the other bedroom. This home has a private elevator that has been converted to additional closet space, plus an oversize 2-car garage. Sand Dollar is a stylish, pet-friendly community just a stroll away from the shops, boutiques, cafes & dining attractions of St. Armands Circle, and only a short drive to the excitement of downtown Sarasota.
