Welcome to Paradise! This beautiful Todd Johnston built residence is set on a .57 acre wooded homesite in the coveted community of Deer Creek. Privately nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac, and surrounded by a native habitat preserve area, the setting evokes images of Shangri-la... your own idyllic hideaway. A unique feature is the exotic sylvan area complete with a stand of bamboo, a shady, wooded area, which invokes a peaceful, pleasant feeling; as though you were far away from the noise of modern life. The landscaping is lush and mature with a bevy of unique plantings and Staghorn ferns. The approach to the home is elegant with a side entry drive to the 3-car garage. As your guests meander the walkway to the front entrance, they will imagine entering a tropical paradise. The large front porch with glassed double door entrance is both grand and welcoming. As you enter the home you will be in awe of the open and spacious formal living and dining areas with high ceilings and walls of glass looking out to the covered living and dining pool side terrace. The chef in the family will love the gourmet kitchen, which is both open to the family room yet private. Relax in the handsome family room, which has a wood-burning fireplace, vaulted ceiling and walls of glass doors opening to the pool terrace. The chic master suite is privately situated with its own entry foyer, opulent master bath, his and hers sinks, large walk-in closet, and private entrance into the den/office. Guests will be reluctant to leave their quarters, which consists of two spacious bedrooms; one adjacent to the guest bathroom, and the other with an en-suite pool bath. A special focal point is the outdoor living area. The coral stone pool deck adds beauty and visual interest. The swimming pool makes one think of the blue waters of the Caribbean with tropical plantings and a fieldstone waterfall. Architectural highlights: crown moldings, soaring volume ceilings, clerestory windows, indirect lighting, French doors, and plantation shutters. A new flat tile roof was installed in 2012. The house also has hurricane protection. This home is an absolute must see to appreciate all of the beauty and privacy it offers. Deer Creek is a beautiful gated residential community of nearly 500 homes located in the heart of master-planned Palmer Ranch. A 24/7 guarded entrance, majestic oak lined roadways, and lush tropical flora set on 200 acres define the neighborhood. The location is convenient to all Sarasota lifestyles; Siesta Beach, the arts, culture, shopping and restaurants of Downtown Sarasota, Sarasota Airport, I-75, Costco, Publix Plaza, quality healthcare, and recreational activities including the YMCA complex with Selby Aquatic Center, top-rated championship golf courses and Legacy Trail for 14 miles of biking, jogging or walking.
