One of Sarasota's oldest homes, originally built in 1916, is available for purchase for the first time after an extensive and historically sensitive renovation. In 2014 the current sellers committed to a full renovation including updating the electric, completely replacing the plumbing, installing ductwork and a central air conditioning system, exposing and restoring the original pine wood floors, and building the home's first interior staircase. Attention to detail from both a historical and a green perspective was taken with every step; original siding was incorporated into the character of a bedroom and the new stair treads were crafted from joists salvaged from under the kitchen floor. The kitchen and bathrooms have been completely updated to modern standards but with aesthetic details in keeping with the age of the home. The home's balloon-frame, built of old growth pine, a heavy resin-laden native lumber that is naturally decay and insect resistant, was recently painted to match the property's second structure. Built in 2016 the second structure was designed to complement the original home while being built to the current codes and highest standards. The structure includes a 2-car garage with custom cabinetry, a guest suite with ensuite bath featuring high ceilings and plentiful windows, and a large porch with two-story screen and wood feature ceiling overlooking the property's brick courtyard. The home's garden has been carefully designed with gravel paths leading the way through Florida native flowering plants, fruit trees, and raised beds. While the home was built before the Historic Central Cocoanut district was even platted it is now in the middle of Sarasota's most exciting new development. Local restaurants and coffee shops are within walking distance including The Reserve which often features live local music. Sarasota's The Bay park redevelopment project is around the corner. Additional existing parks and playgrounds are in easy walking distance. The exciting Rosemary District and Downtown Sarasota are both under a mile from your front door. This beautiful home truly offers the best of Sarasota from 1916 through today.
