Sophisticated Southwest style meets Sun Coast Florida charm in this updated and expanded three bedroom / three bath waterfront jewel in Phillippi Cove. A circular paver drive takes you to the entrance where an unexpected “wow” awaits just beyond the front door, as gleaming original real oak floors catch the eye and a wall of glass frames the tranquil water and preserve views beyond. The open and spacious interior has been redone for an effective year-built of 2012, highlighting a newly added 800 sq. ft. fully en suite main bedroom with walk-in closet and a luxurious spa bath with soaking tub, dual side-entry walk-in shower, dual vanities with vessel sinks and separate water closet. Both guest bathrooms have also been completely remodeled. Enjoy outdoor living on the expansive brick patio overlooking the long, lush back yard, with room for a pool, 100’ of water frontage, and the rare preserve view just across the open water basin. No homes or structures can ever be built to disrupt your serene vistas! Additional outstanding features include current hurricane rated windows, installed 6 yrs. ago, that are impact resistant with design pressures of +/-60 psd, suitable for high velocity hurricane zones, 2 A/C systems for ultimate comfort, newer roof, plumbing and air ducts, and a 2-car garage with finished floor and half-bath. Enjoy boating and kayaking on the smooth waters flowing just a short distance out to the open Bay. This exceptional Sarasota location is convenient to downtown, shopping, dining, Siesta Key Beach and attractions.
