One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. VACANT – worry-free showings! This is an outstanding opportunity on Phillippi Creek. Close to all that Sarasota has to offer, but far from it all and nestled on a stunning ¾ acre waterfront parcel at the end of a cul-de-sac, this lovely home presents plenty of opportunities for its new owners. Boasting 5 bedrooms or 4 plus den on the main living level, and a grandfathered-in apartment with kitchen, den, bedroom, living room and separate entrance downstairs, this home is ideal for multiple generations or live-in help. The original owners have maintained the home very well and have made the most of the natural light which fills the main living area at all times of the day. The solid red oak floors have just been refinished; new paint and new carpet throughout. The neutral colors leave you with a blank slate to decorate how you wish. The kitchen was remodeled in 2015 and boasts a 7 x 5’8 island with plenty of bar seating, granite countertops, solid wood cabinetry, induction cook top, window seat, and wine rack. Large master suite. French doors from the large, bright dining room open up so you can enjoy the privacy of the tranquil back yard from the covered deck overlooking the oversized, extra deep pool with lap lane and built-in bar table! There is a large boat dock on the creek from which to fish, launch a kayak or enjoy a sundowner. 5th bedroom off the living room could be used as an office or rec room. Additional features attached to mls but include: metal roof, fenced back yard, huge pool, one ensuite bedroom with separate entrance, and another full apartment with separate entrance downstairs, a 600 sf air-conditioned hobby/game/rec room, oversized 3 car garage, mature fruit trees.
