Live the Florida dream, where every day is a day at the beach! This 3-bed, 2-bath mid-century gem is a rare find. With Siesta Key Beach less than a half mile from your front door, magnificent sunsets and panoramic views are yours to enjoy daily. One mile away is Siesta Key “Village”, with shops, cafes, restaurants, and outdoor venues providing the perfect mix of modern-day amenities and old island charm. This 1,700 sq ft. home has a new roof (2023), new tile floors in all bedrooms (2023), a new electrical sub-panel, newer air conditioner (2019), hot water heater (2021), and a freshly painted exterior. Whether you seek a private winter retreat, a lucrative rental, or year-round personal enjoyment, this unique beach home is unmatched. In terms of design, craftsmanship, quality of materials, price and location, this home stands alone. The living room radiates charm with open-beam ceilings, built-in seating, and a wood-burning fireplace. True to mid-century fashion, the home is crafted with solid Cypress wood doors, tongue & groove paneling and the use of iconic Pecky Cypress. The kitchen features refaced cabinets, newer appliances, granite countertops, and Italian ceramic tile flooring. A seamless blend of indoors and outdoors is achieved with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open from the living and kitchen areas to an oversized 650 sq ft front lanai- ideal for entertaining with family and friends, and perfect for relaxing on hammocks after a day at the beach. The primary bedroom, a generous 640 sq ft retreat, boasts open-beam ceilings, French windows and doors, ensuite bath, an alcove office area, walk-in closet and separate entrances that allow for privacy - ideal for guests or extended family. The home offers versatility, as the layout might lend itself to being configured as a 2-bedroom/1 bath at the front of the home, with the primary bedroom serving as a fully equipped “Owner’s Suite” with the installation of a kitchenette. Original finishes grace the two guest bedrooms, complete with open-beam ceilings, custom built-in desks, dressers and closets. A 10’ x 12’ free-standing outbuilding at the back of the property, equipped with electricity, can serve as an artist’s workshop or storage space. There’s room for a pool with plans available. This home has had just 2 owners, has never been rented, and has no history of flooding. A short drive away you will find vibrant Downtown Sarasota & St. Armand’s Circle, world-renowned for their arts & cultural offerings, fine dining, and shopping options. Lovers of the Arts can take in the world-class Sarasota Orchestra, the Ringling Museum, or a performance at the Opera House, as well as an array of award-winning theatrical venues & art galleries. Boating, golfing and an array of outdoor activities abound, with pickleball courts at Siesta Key Public Beach a stone’s throw from the home. Sarasota-Manatee International Airport is just 15 miles away. Come experience “Real Florida”, own a slice of paradise and luxuriate in the sparkling blue waters of the Gulf Coast.
