Located behind the gates of The Oaks, on a quiet cul-de-sac, this 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home is situated on a lovely, private lot. From the moment you see the unique facade, you will anticipate what is behind the double front doors. As you enter you will be greeted by gleaming oversized ceramic tiles, and a great view through the living room, out over the pool to the golf course beyond. The master bedroom is spacious with a large walk-in closet and a bath with dual sinks, jetted garden tub and walk-in shower. Besides the master suite there are two additional bedrooms that share a bath, outfitted with cool bowl sinks. The kitchen features granite countertops, and newer stainless steel appliances. With a formal dining room, breakfast bar and dining nook, there are plenty of options for family meals as well as entertaining. Outside the screened lanai houses a large pool with spa, and plenty of covered space for dining al fresco or sitting in the shade taking in the pretty views of the lake and 9th hole of the Heron course. High ceilings, a newer roof (replaced in 2014), hurricane shutters on most windows, and a two car garage all add to the reasons you must see this home; neat as a pin and waiting for you to make it your own. Membership in The Oaks Club is available and required. Sarasota’s finest golf and country club offers two distinctly unique 18-hole championship golf courses, 12 HAR-TRU tennis courts (4 lighted), 4 new pickle ball courts, a state-of-the art fitness center, fine and casual dining options, and a wealth of recreational activities and social events.
