Wow! The dream-home opportunity with this property is just incredible! The location simply cannot be rivaled, and the large 1/2 acre size is also a rarity in this prime location. Nestled West of the Trail just off pretty & winding Orange Avenue, the home enjoys 108' of frontage on Hudson Bayou, an ideal boating spot because of the very short time to the open waters of Sarasota Bay and without any bridges to hold you back! Over the wide water, you'll see Selby Gardens - not other homes - how nice! Supreme walkability to downtown and the charm of this historic neighborhood make it one of the most coveted locales in thriving Sarasota, and this property in particular presents a unique opportunity to possibly create the home of your fantasies while surrounded by both stunning modern and attractive vintage homes (no cookie-cutter feel here, in the best way possible!), or to live in a piece of Sarasota's history. Enjoy the existing home, including the dock and two boat lifts, forever - or at least while your gorgeous new house is under construction! There are a wide array of options in terms of home style and size that would be perfectly suited to this space and location, so the building world is your oyster here, though the existing home has a charm all its own as well...from the vintage curb appeal to the wood floors throughout and great view of the pool, bayou, and Selby Gardens, it is truly a treasure. Alternatively, this waterfront property presents a fantastic canvas of beautiful coastal nature on which to realize your dreams, without the impersonal feel all too common in new construction. The time is now and this one won't wait...
