Rare opportunity to own one of the very few waterfront houses located less than a mile away from downtown Sarasota. Nestled on the Hudson Bayou, West of the Trail, this property allows you to experience a luxury Floridian lifestyle: walk over to your dock for an impromptu sunset boat ride, enjoy a relaxing morning cup of coffee on your waterfront deck, take a walk downtown for a show and dinner… The possibilities are endless! Located in a quiet dead-end street, the home features an open floor plan that effortlessly blends livability and privacy while taking full advantage of the incredible water views. The family room expands outside towards the rear deck through the large sliders and their southern exposure. Three bedrooms, two baths, and an oversized sunroom that doubles as an office space or art studio, offer plenty of space for entertaining family and guests. Dock and boat lift have been recently replaced. A recently installed whole-house generator with a 500 gallons LP tank, along with impact glass windows, impact doors, and an impact garage door will keep you safe during hurricane season. Other features include a home automation system to control music, lights, temperature, etc.; plantation shutters; freshly renovated bath; stunning solid pine wood flooring; PVC plumbing; pavers; new composite deck connected to electricity and water, with a fillet table; new propane tank for gas stove and generator; and ample storage space beneath home. This location is close to Southside Village, Selby Gardens, the bayfront, downtown, Sarasota Art Museum, Publix, and more. Paradise nestled in the heart of Sarasota!
