Here is your chance to own a piece of Sarasota's history, restored to its original charm! This home, masterfully constructed by hand as part of the Bay Shore Mennonite community founded in the Desoto Terrace subdivision that was established in 1912, is registered in Florida's Master Site file of historical and cultural resources because of its unique architecture and craftsmanship that has withstood the test of time. The original heart pine wood floors, wood-burning fireplace, raised ceilings, and window arrangements that allow for an abundance of natural light perfectly complement the tasteful modern updates that have been made, which include updated plumbing and electrical wiring, a gas conversion for the range & tankless water heater, a full-sized LG all-in-one washer/dryer unit, and an updated eat-in kitchen with bamboo flooring & five-stage reverse osmosis water purification system. Almost every detail has been accounted for, so the toughest decision you'll likely have to make is if you want to use the picturesque dining room addition to host formal get-togethers or swap it with the bonus sitting room to create the ideal study or home office. The functionality and gracious style continue outback of the home, where the original carriage house has been converted into a detached garage that offers even more work or storage space and features a built-in entertainment center so you can gather with friends and family outdoors on the large paver patio and deck to enjoy movie nights under the stars or to barbeque and catch the big game. The house sits comfortably on the oversized, non-deed restricted, lot of prime "West of Trail" real estate that boasts mature native landscaping highlighted by fruiting mango trees and a romantic trellis with a relaxing bench swing, yet there is still plenty of extra room to put in a dream pool, mother-in-law suite, or park all of your toys. To top it off, it's located in the Indian Beach-Sapphire Shores neighborhood, also known as the "Museum District" because it is home to cultural attractions like Ringling Museum, Ca' d'Zan, and Asolo Theater, which means you have the option to join the voluntary HOA that is chalked full of friendly members who passionately embrace this unique community and enjoy organizing fun events like picnics, art festivals, restoration projects, and garage sales; Plus, it's only a short drive away from multiple establishments of higher education, extraordinary shopping & dining in downtown Sarasota, and accessing the numerous beaches on Sarasota Bay, Lido Key, and the world-famous Siesta Key that will be at your fingertips!
