SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES
1717 OAK STREET
Craftsman Bungalow with Modern Interior! Located in Downtown Sarasota's National Historic District, this custom Laurel Park home is perfection from top to bottom! Newly constructed in 2014, the current owners had intended on building a contemporary home, but felt that the exterior of the home should reflect the "flavor" of the neighborhood, so designed a craftsman-like elevation. The charming front porch welcomes you inside the 2260 square foot main home where you will find 4 bedrooms. 3 baths and crisp, straight lines, an open-concept floor plan, high ceilings, recessed lighting, plenty of natural light & glass, clever built-ins, and ample wall space for fabulous art! There is one bedroom suite on the main living level, with the deluxe master suite (complete with morning bar) and additional guest bedroom on the second level. A fantastic artists' studio, office or 4th bedroom with morning bar is another flight up. The generous back porch is completely screened, but only partially covered to allow for plenty of sunlight to illuminate the living room/kitchen. The rear courtyard is lushly landscaped and private. The studio apartment is above the detached garage and has a full bath, kitchenette and closet space. You are minutes away from downtown theatres, restaurants, and shopping as well as the Sarasota Bayfront, Selby Gardens and Sarasota Opera. The kayak launch is less than 2 blocks away, and takes you out into the bay for dolphin and manatee sightings! This home has terrific personality and character!!!
