Casual elegance in the heart of Siesta Key by the beach. This fabulous four-bedroom, three-bath, three-car garage home on boating water has all the right components, plus a perfect location, close to the quartz-crystal white sands of world-famous Siesta Beach and boutiques and restaurants in charming Siesta Village. Conveniently located on Palm Island, a heart-shaped island neighborhood, accessed by a small bridge surrounded by boating water, leading directly to Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The paver driveway and tropical gardens lead from the spacious paver driveway to the covered front entry porch, where you are welcomed into this easy-living residence. Offering a foyer entry, high ceilings and an immediate view of the private screened-in pool, lanai and waterfront. Designed for entertaining, this home features wonderful architectural details of columns and crown molding in the formal living and dining rooms. However, you’ll likely spend most of your time gathering with friends and family in the more casual areas of the home, including the spacious chef’s kitchen with its handsome hardwood floors, granite countertops, abundant wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar and separate dining nook, flowing seamlessly to the family room featuring a coffered ceiling and wood floors. A nearby, separate den/office offers flexible space, easily used as a fifth bedroom. The rooms overlook the spacious screened-in lanai and pool area with an oversized paver deck and plenty of open area for sunning, a covered area for shade and a separate covered grilling area. This wonderful home is well-designed for privacy, with a three-way split bedroom floor plan: the separate, luxurious master bedroom suite with a shower and soaking tub, plus two guest bedrooms and shared bath and a fourth separate guest bedroom plus bath and full laundry room. Oversized three-car garage. Live the island life, relax by the pool, fish, kayak or paddleboard from your own spacious yard. After a day of fun in the sun, gather and marvel at the blazing Siesta Key sunsets from your own waterfront dock. Only 15 minutes to mainland shopping, restaurants, hospitals and the many cultural activities found in downtown Sarasota.
