There are those rare opportunities to find that perfect home that pop up from time to time and this home in the Meadows might just be it! BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE VIRTUAL TOUR. A fabulous three-bedroom, two and one-half bath pool home that overlooks the second fairway through the shaded tall oak trees. The location of any home is the most critical factor when buying real estate. Rutland Gate has only nineteen homes situated on this peaceful dead-end street. The home at 4940 Rutland Gate is one of only 9 with a golf-course view. Even better, the Meadows Home Owners Association recently purchased the golf course preventing any residential construction behind established areas. If the perfect, park-like setting is on the ‘must-have’ list, this is it! This 2,125 sq.ft. home is situated on a 16,350 sq.ft. lot with mature trees, tasteful landscaping, a long paver brick driveway, an oversized two-car garage, and a tile roof. The large pool is heated, and there is plenty of lanai space within the screened cage area. The owners have taken great care of this home with attention to every detail. The double door entry leads to comfort and serenity. Large sliders throughout the rear of the home offer an unmatched view from just about every room in the house. Yes, it is a “Wow” view! The kitchen is open to the family room, formal dining room, and a pass-through window to the covered lanai area. With all the sliders open, dining poolside is just part of the daily Florida lifestyle. When waking up in the morning, it is hard not to have a smile looking across the paver brick pool, lanai, and that long shaded view of the golf course. The large master suite features double sinks with granite countertops, double walk-in closets, and a full linen closet. A split floor plan allows a degree of privacy for guests who will enjoy their full bath plus the pool bath. The smart design of this home even offers access and a full view of the lanai and pool. Owners of homes in The Meadows receive membership at the clubhouse. If golf is the game, the Meadows features three courses to test the best golfer’s skills. The Meadows has miles of biking and hiking trails amongst beautiful lakes and trees. St. Armands Circle, Siesta Key Beach, the fabulous restaurants the Sarasota downtown area is known for are all within quick reach. Benderson Park, the UTC mall, and I-75 are within a minute or two drive. Easy access in and out of town with a 15-minute drive to the Sarasota/Bradenton Internation Airport. A split floor plan allows a degree of privacy for guests who will enjoy their full bath plus the pool bath. The smart design of this home even offers access and a full view of the lanai and pool.
