Sq. Feet:2,622
Date Sold:5/16/2024
Lot Size:24,169 Sq. Ft.
One-of-a-kind tropical compound consisting of two updated craftsman cottages (approx. 2,900sq feet between the two) located on over .55 acres of lush yet landscaped paradise directly across the street from Sarasota Bay (with peek-a-boo Bay views across the street).

These beautifully restored historic cottages await your family and guests to enjoy privacy, comfort, and tranquility. Conveniently located just a short walk from Sapphire Shores Park with a kayak launch and playground, not to mention gorgeous nightly sunsets.

This piece of paradise is conveniently just minutes to downtown Sarasota and the gulf beaches. Sapphire Shores/Indian Beach is a hidden gem tucked between US41(west of) and Sarasota Bay with a mixture of historic and modern homes, just south of world-renowned Ringling Museum, Asolo Theater, New College of Florida, and only a few minutes for Van Wezel Performing arts. Also just minutes from SRQ airport, or a short drive to the world-famous beaches (Lido & Siesta) of Sarasota.

The large rear screened-in porch on the main cottage faces a private quiet heavy wooded area. The lush tropical landscaping makes you feel like you are in a botanical garden and separates the cottages for privacy. This is the best of both worlds, live in your own home and have your family and friends visit you and stay in their own cottage or use it for a seasonal vacation rental (with extensive rental history). The main cottage (~2,000 Sq Ft) features a master with ensuite bath with large, jetted tub and separate shower. A private separate den/office/guest room and an additional fully separate home office flank both sides of the master to create private spaces. Kitchen features light filled large eat-in dinning surrounded by cottage windows on one side and formal dining room that flows out to the man living room on the other. A fireplace and built-in bookcases are just few of the features of the main cottage. Attached garage has been refinished with a new epoxy floor and climate controlled/AC and has doubled used as a Peloton workout room as well as a workshop with new cabinetry.

The guest cottage, with two bedrooms, has an adorable kitchen with exposed brick that is open to the high ceiling living area, and boasts original hardwood floors. The romantic screened-in porch is a favorite of guests where they can enjoy those morning coffee reflections or sunset moments. Each cottage has its own laundry room with separate washer/dryer. This is a rare opportunity to have two cottages in a beautiful prestigious neighborhood, surrounded by multi-million-dollar homes and priceless views
