Positioned in the coveted neighborhood of Bay Point Park where very few homes come on the market this very desirable west of trail home is within walking distance of downtown, the bay front , Southside Village, Sarasota Memorial and all activities that Sarasota has to offer. Rich in history and abundant in character this was home to one of Sarasota’s most beloved mayors. Architecturally redesigned and constructed in 1996 and thoughtfully upgraded and maintained over the years this lovely, one level home boasts “old Florida charm” with water and pool views from almost every room.
Enter through the custom handmade double doors designed by a well known local artisan and copied from a home in Spain to a cathedral like foyer and sunroom with expansive 30ft windows overlooking your own private piece of paradise set on just over 1/2 acre.
The custom eat-in- kitchen featuring wet bar, wine cabinet, built -in-desk, 2 year old appliances and a double sided natural gas fireplace with coral stone facia seamlessly flows into the dining/living open interior concept. Vaulted, beamed ceilings enhance the charm with built in cabinets and bookcases providing ample storage while whole house surround sound plays your favorite music. Abundant natural light shines through floor to ceiling windows and French doors all looking beyond to the water and pool surrounded by oak hammock and lush mature vegetation creating an uncompromising level of privacy.
The master bedroom suite has vaulted ceilings, built ins and private porch. The master bath features a deep jetted tub, his and her vanities and a walk through shower.
The second bedroom has its own bath with the bonus room serving as an office, den, library or media room.
A covered atrium leads to the third bedroom mother-in-law/ guest suite with separate entrance providing complete privacy from the main house.
Walk down a path of stepping stones to the water and dock with quick access to Sarasota bay from this idyllic property. BONUS FOR BOATERS:There is an extra boat dock available at the neighborhood boat basin through the Bay Point Association.
