Sarasota West of Trail Updated Vintage Home with Lush Tropical Garden
This exquisite 3,586 square-foot home sits on a quiet, corner lot between Osprey and Orange avenues, less than one mile from downtown Sarasota. The two-story home, has three bedrooms, three full baths, plus a large bonus/in-law room and additional full bath. The home was built in 1900 and is located in a very desirable, established neighborhood.
You are welcomed by a bright and expansive front porch which speaks to the rustic style that runs throughout this vintage home. Wide plank wood floors and a brick-front, wood-burning fireplace brings the feeling of country living conveniently close to town. The living room, den/office, staircase and second level all retain the original wood floors, walls and windows. The updated kitchen opens to the living and dining areas. Stainless steel appliances complement the vintage wainscoting and new knotty pine floor. From the dining room, the sturdy, wooden staircase leads to three good-sized bedrooms and two newly-renovated full baths.
What was once a detached studio has been cleverly connected to the main house creating two huge spaces for education, recreation, in-law apartment, or perhaps an artist studio. Three sets of double French doors lead to the lush and tranquil outdoor gardens. Sit under the pergola as you listen to the sounds of the waterfall dance upon the stones. Surrounded by greenery, abundant porch space, both screened and open, this hidden oasis sits on a corner lot in one of Sarasota’s most desirable neighborhoods.
