A beautiful blend of historic and modern that captures what the world loves best about Sarasota, this 5 BR, 3 BA home, strategically renovated by a top-notch architect, provides you sustainable living downtown while enjoying the passive income of a rental unit. Walking distance to the farmers’ market, theater, music and the bay front, the desirable 10 acre Gillespie Park neighborhood also features tennis courts, dog park, playground, and pond. Designated as the Willis B. Powell House, the interior has been thoughtfully re-imagined with a new chef’s kitchen including a gas range, custom built-in cabinetry and pull-out island, plus a mother-in-law apartment, featuring a separate entrance, full bath and kitchen. The historic character preserved, including the original wood burning fireplace and rich hardwood floors, a clever reconfiguration created a first floor BR with a full bath which doubles as a guest en-suite. Upstairs, two bedrooms have been carved out of a larger space with a temporary wall. Adjacent to the master BR, the bath upstairs is fully updated and a laundry room has been created off of the kitchen with a utility sink and a hook up for a gas dryer. Sliders open from the kitchen to the brick patio, with a hookup for a gas grill, surrounded by an edible landscape of mulberry, mango, avocado, starfruit, loquat, and bananas. Pest control system has been maintained, seller will tent the house prior to closing. The roof is 18 years, but in good shape. There is room to add a pool in the backyard.
