Property Description

Step into a classic Old Florida sanctuary nestled within the serene and highly sought-after Desoto Acres in Sarasota. This spacious home stretches over 2500+ square feet on two floors, featuring 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Noteworthy updates include new garage doors (2023), a carport with a 20/50 Amp setup for motorhomes, and a house panel box ready for a generator. The whole house filtration system was installed in 2014, with a reverse osmosis system in the kitchen added in 2011. The property benefits from a metal roof on an additional garage installed in 2021, impact-resistant windows and glass sliders, and a leaf gutter installed in 2019. The well system features an updated Gould J7 pump (2012), and the driveway was newly sealed and paved in 2023. A new HVAC unit installed in 2023 ensures modern comfort throughout the home. Surrounded by mature landscaping, this private oasis is located near University Parkway, moments from UTC Mall, with its plethora of dining and shopping venues. It provides easy access to I-75 for quick commutes to St. Pete, Tampa, or Port Charlotte, and the area's pristine beaches are just a short drive away. Set on a sprawling 2.23-acre estate free from HOA, CDD fees, and deed restrictions, this property is ideal for those with RVs, boats, and a variety of outdoor toys, combining timeless charm with modern conveniences for perfect old and new Florida living.
