Family Estate West of Osprey Avenue
Find your sense of place in this gracious West of Trail family home. Located in historic Bayview Heights, an iconic Sarasota neighborhood tucked between Cherokee Park and McClellan Park, the home is welcoming and comfortable — a place where family and friends gather to enjoy life.
Enter through the hand-carved mahogany front doors into the lofty living room with vaulted ceiling, wood-burning fireplace and wall-to-wall glass doors that lead to the covered patio, gazebo and travertine pool deck. The large kitchen with eat-in center island is open to the family room and adjacent to the dining room. The family room opens to the outdoor living space, and the dining room opens to the kitchen through pocket doors which can be left open for family meals or closed for formal dinners.
The home’s four bedrooms include an upstairs master suite with two balconies, as well as a downstairs private guest suite. Across the master suite, a solid-wood paneled den/office completes the owner’s retreat. Fine finishes include marble tile flooring, five-inch baseboards, crown moulding, fluted square columns and solid wood cabinetry. Designed for enjoying the outdoors as much as indoors, the home has a covered patio with vaulted-ceiling gazebo, large 15 x 30 pool and sits on a double-lot with mature trees and privacy landscaping.
This exceptional home has the following 2016 improvements: roof with warranty, gutters and downspouts with leaf guard, master suite A/C, 50-gallon hot water heater, pool resurface and pump, travertine pool/patio deck, landscaping and irrigation system.
Convenient in-town location just .5 mile from Southside Elementary, 1 mile from Southside Village, 2 miles from Downtown and 5 miles from Siesta Key Beach.
