Looking for character and charm that you just can't find in new construction? This is it! A gorgeous country manor nestled among thriving oaks and wild orchids offers a secluded retreat harmonious with nature, complete with your own fishing pond! The home, a two-story main house, with an adjacent bonus room, and guest apartment, is situated in a singular footprint, allowing for additional structures to be built on the 6.2 acre property. The interior is as impressive as the grounds with custom, solid hickory cabinetry and high-end stainless appliances in the gourmet kitchen, cork flooring in the first floor master, and a dual-sided fireplace in the great room. The wall of sliders hides out of sight to allow entertaining to spill out to the lanai featuring a natural stone, heated spa. Carry your drink out to the gazebo to watch the sunset and take in some star gazing. Once your guests have retired and you need to burn the midnight oil, this remarkable community brings fiber to your door, so internet connectivity is never questionable. Additional practicality is evident in the thermapane, hurricane resistant windows throughout, the tri-zoned AC new in 2014, the HALO air purification system installed in 2015, and tons of hidden storage. It is amazing that this lifestyle can be enjoyed just a quick jaunt from world-renowned beaches, fine dining and all the culture Sarasota has to offer. It truly is the BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, where the country mouse and the city mouse can BOTH live happily ever after!
