This beautiful home has 4 bedrooms (all on the 1st floor), 3 bathrooms, a 3-car garage, a large bonus room (upstairs with a separate AC system) and a large caged pool (and gazebo) all for under $500,000. Located in one of the best public school zones in the area – Ashton Elementary, Sarasota Middle and Riverview High School. But what sets this home apart from most others of similar size and configuration are the upgrades. New in 2020: All bathrooms upgraded with new cabinets, undermount sinks, faucets, toilets, light fixtures & upscale granite (level 4) in 2020 and new hot tub pump/motor. New in 2019: New solar system in 2019 so now the average electric bill is about $50 per month as opposed to an average of $250 per month on a home this size without solar panels. The most recent electric bill was $9. Also new in 2019 is a new roof (lifetime leak warranty), hybrid water heater (heat pump – low energy usage), new 135,000 btu heat pump pool heater & top of the line pool pump/motor. New in 2018: New hurricane resistant windows in 2018 that are full impact resistant up to 156 mph (no shutters to install). The home is situated on the largest lot in the subdivision and is on a cul-de-sac. It has a pretty pond right next to it, full of aquatic wild life. Wonderful bird, butterfly & wild life sanctuary behind the home. Quick easy access to I-75 with tons of restaurants, shopping, etc nearby. Pool has baby fence that is stored in shed on side of home. Plenty of parking with a 100+ foot driveway. And a remote controlled electric shade in the family room for the 8' x 8' sliding glass door.
