An opportunity like this doesn't come along very often! This property offers an ideal location, a generous size lot and a spacious home with so much potential! Backing up to the crosswalk to Country Club Shores' deeded beach access, you'll find yourself steps to the beautiful sand, waves and sunsets. As you enter, the home has a grand feeling with a formal living and dining area. The recently refreshed kitchen (with new appliances added December 2021) has easy access to the patio through a pass-through window and sliders. It also overlooks a nice space that could be used as a family room or breakfast nook. Also off the kitchen is the mudroom which would make for a great pantry. The laundry is currently located in the garage but could also be moved to the mudroom. On the other side of the home, the large master suite offers a generous walk-in closet and a bathroom that is accessible from the patio. Stay cool with a brand new AC installed June 2022 with a 10 year warranty! Additionally, the hot water heater was replaced in July 2022 and comes with a 6 year warranty! Outside there is room for a pool on this oversized lot off the spacious 500sf screened patio. There is plenty of room for cars with the two-car side entry garage and two driveways. The low-maintenance yard includes limestone gravel, an assortment of fruit trees and other mature landscaping. You'll enjoy being perfectly situated to take advantage of lovely views straight down the canal to Sarasota Bay. Conveniently located near St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota, you'll find yourself in the desirable Southside Elementary school district and minutes from everything. Take a bike ride to Publix or CVS, take a short drive to countless restaurants and shops, or pop over to the Longboat Key Club for some golf and tennis. This home's location and features are hard to beat!
