An Oasis in the City. Built in 1941 it was a little Florida “working class shack”(as quoted from Sarasota Herald Tribune) which has been impeccably remodeled to honor the authenticity of the original structure as much as possible. The home is a total fusion of old and new. The exterior is pecky cypress and topped with a metal roof. Beautiful pine floors. Nestled behind the gates is a private courtyard on one of the best streets “west of the trail”. It is conveniently located in the much sought after area close to world renowned beaches of Siesta, Southside Village, restaurants, Sarasota Hospital, shopping and in the school district of Southside Elementary. The house boasts a total of 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, open kitchen, dining room, living room w/gas fireplace and family room w/wood burning fireplace. There is also a separate guest house . The home is built for entertaining with open floor plan and a fabulous courtyard featuring pool. Surrounded by dense foliage it is hard to believe it is so close to everything. Located between Osprey and 41. Sitting in this quiet beautiful courtyard you would think you are in Key West.
