Where else can you find a large waterfront family home, that doesn’t require flood insurance and is this close to Siesta Key and downtown Sarasota? And at a price that won’t break the bank! Located in a quiet corner of a cul-de-sac on a deep water cove just off the Phillippi waterway, this home has the features you’ve been looking for! The recently updated home has three bedrooms and three baths with an additional nursery/workout room with a closet, so could also be used as a fourth bedroom. The master suite is an entire oasis unto itself with beautiful views of the water, gorgeous bath with a deep jetted tub, two separate offices and a 90-square-foot, walk-in closet, sure to delight. The kitchen will speak to the chef in your family with its gas stove, solid wood cabinets and granite countertops around a center island opening up to the breakfast area and family room. For holidays and dinner parties, there is a formal dining room adjacent to the living room with its focus on a beautiful brick fireplace. The property has a westerly orientation with approximately 150 feet of water frontage with a newly built contemporary home across the bayou. The outdoor entertaining area has a sparkling pool, cascading spa, paver deck and 50-foot dock, only 15 minutes from the ICW. Additional features include built-ins throughout the home, an oversized, two-car garage, wood floors, an additional side garage, well and sprinkler system, back-up generator, gas tankless water heater, front porch and Riverview school district.
