"Reduced from original price of $2,679,500 by $429,500 to $2,250,000 making it the best value for a single family home in perfect condition in the exciting Lido/St. Armand's Circle area. Come see! "THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS – ENCHANTING ISLAND GETAWAY WITH INCOME POSSIBILITIES Imagine! A treasure of a house situated in an oasis on St. Armands Circle/Lido Key offers the most exciting and accessible location in coastal Sarasota. First discovered by the Ringling family and a cast of illustrious writers, artists, and industrialists whose winter mansions stand prominently in lush gardens, this island still casts its spell. The ability to enjoy all of this as your private retreat and additionally the ability to Rent this home seasonally (min 8 day rentals allowed, Maximum 6 adults and no limitation on the age of 6 and under) while living elsewhere is an option of significant value. A total skillful renovation in 2012 has transformed its personality. Still more than that, the owners have created a setting with specimen vegetation which gives greater meaning to “made in the shade”. The design of the open pool with sunning ledge is the focal point. Additionally, there is a large, private “al fresco” shower with access to the interior. The screened lanai invites gracious entertaining and seating for guests making outdoor entertaining a breeze. The interior floorplan offers two generous bedroom suites on separate levels. The second-floor bedroom has an additional studio component for an artist or yoga retreat with an abundance of light. The first level is remarkably livable with a stainless steel breakfast bar, solid wood cabinetry, tile backsplash, granite countertops, wine refrigerator, gas cooktop, and walk-in pantry. Even the powder room is creatively conceived with a stone pebble wall. The gracious floor plan flows into the dining area and living room. Plantation shutters add a coastal accent. The original terrazzo floors on the first level of the house were in such good condition that the owners decided to keep them. Altogether, it is a beautifully conceived reconstruction and the overall effect of the landscaping creates a perfect island oasis on the west coast of Florida’s treasure of an island village.
