Description

Incredible value for 200' ft of Bayfront! You will enjoy endless views of Lemon Bay from this unique 3300 sq ft home, situated on a private and secluded 1.57 acres and located on Southwest Florida’s Gulf coast, in Sarasota County. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE AND RARE LOT - DOUBLE THE WATERFRONT WIDTH OF MOST BAYFRONT LOTS, AND YOU CAN'T REPLICATE THE MATURE TREES AND LANDSCAPING ON THIS PROPERTY. As you drive through the gated access entry and meander down the long driveway, you immediately notice how private this oasis is as you pass by the tropical landscaping, live oak trees, and fruit trees (including banana, mango, and lemon trees). Up the stairs to the main level, you notice the extraordinary treehouse off the deck and imagine the memories that will be made here. Upon entering you are captivated by the 23' high floor to ceiling windows. The light pours in and lifts your spirits. You gaze upwards to the 18' long lofted library overlooking the open and spacious great room. The chef's kitchen is made for entertaining and boasts an 11' long granite kitchen island, S/S appliances including two dishwashers, an island cooktop, double wall oven with warming drawer, and French door refrigerator. The kitchen expands into a large dining room and flows easily into the great room, and out to the many decks and balconies overlooking the pool and park-like yard. Retreat to the expansive owner's suite with unparalleled views of the bay from the bedroom and private terrace. The oversized large master bathroom has double vanities, a walk-in shower, and luxurious walk-in closets with custom closet systems. The lower level offers a large open space perfect for extra guests or an in-law suite with yet another multi-functional family/gathering space that flows out to the pool deck and has a bonus wet bar and pool bathroom. From the lower level, sliding glass doors lead out onto a covered patio area, an open deck surrounding the cage-less pool. Walk down to spend some time in the private back yard complete with fire pit, hammock, and a bench swing. This property has so much to offer. 3 Zone, 1 A/C 2013, New roof in 2008, Kitchen Renovation '04, Custom Closet Organization System '09, Master Bath Renovation '09, Deck Railings & Stairs '08, Electronic Gate '11, Custom Awnings '14, 3m Scotch Shield to Windows 2005, GAF/ELK Lifetime Shingles, Downspouts & Gutters added.
