Grand Mediterranean Revival in Indian Beach with two single family parcels along the north shore of Sarasota Bay. A long, palm lined drive leads up to this classic residence and the first thing which greats you is a 40 foot long front porch. This is an idyllic spot to enjoy evening sea breezes and a private view of your landscape cascading down to Bay Shore Road. Everything about his place is classic. The large front door is framed by decorative side panels leading to a formal entry foyer at the base of a hand-crafted, two level staircase. To your right, a glass french door leads into a living room anchored by a wood burning fireplace bracketed by more french doors to the Florida room. Coffered ceilings, molding and base boards are dramatic original features. Another french door and an arched entryway lead to the formal dining room with collapsible glass doors allowing the party to spill out onto a rear patio shaded by ancient oak trees. Adjacent to the “eat in” kitchen is a den, which is reminiscent of a Ringling “speak easy” bar room with a half bath. This is a perfect spot for “prohibition era”, after dinner cocktails. Upstairs you’ll find a traditional floor plan with a large master and several smaller bedrooms all sharing two baths. The master, like the living room below, has multiple french doors leading to a sunny ante room with full southern exposure. The entire home is of masonry construction and has heart pine floors throughout. The AC systems (2) are new. Electrical service has been updated to 250 amp and the tile roof was replaced in 2002. There is an oversized, detached garage and a guest house with a large private patio. The front yard is so large it’s an additional parcel which can be subdivided for the construction of another residence.
