Embracing the tropical lifestyle of Siesta Key, this vacation getaway is only five minutes from the No. 1
recognized beach in the nation. Starfish Cottage is brimming with charm yet prime for a renovation and
any updates will add to the overall value. Or start fresh with your own vision and build new on the highly
desirable north end of Siesta Key. You’ll find this home and location have fantastic rental potential or
can be ideal for the seasonal user where relaxation is the order of the day. The drive-in entry area is
immense with plenty of room for multiple cars or a boat. The cottage is imbued with seaside whimsy,
consisting of over 2,700 square feet and five bedrooms with the potential for six. A gracious living room
is centered around the fireplace, where it’s a treat to relax after an afternoon combing for shells. The
coastal farmhouse aesthetic is welcoming and characteristic of historic Siesta with shiplap walls,
wood trim, and updated vintage appeal. Prepare the catch of the day in the open kitchen equipped with
granite surfaces, stainless appliances, peninsula bar with breakfast area, and plenty of counter space.
The master suite is your private escape with views of tropical splendor, custom walk-in closet, master
bath with separate vanities and seamless shower door. Four additional bedrooms invite your entire
family to come together and celebrate the beauty of coastal Florida. This includes attached living
quarters equipped with a bedroom, full bath, kitchenette and a den. Sunseekers will delight in laying by
the pool while the backyard is complete with plenty of privacy. Beachcombers will love being only a few
blocks away from Shell Beach with its quiet shores and soft sands. Head to nearby Siesta Village for
coffee, ice cream, or your pick of delicious seafood restaurants. Downtown Sarasota is just over the
bridge for one-of-a-kind arts and culture. Experience the coveted coastline of Siesta Key.
