Discover a rare opportunity in this market to own 200' (double lot) of prime Longboat Key waterfront property, where manatees, dolphins and splashing fish play just a moment away from sparkling Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico beyond. Set on almost a half acre along a serene bayou across from a lush 7-acre preserve, this cypress, mid-century architecture home is Zen-like in its privacy, tropical serenity, and connection to nature. The tranquil ambiance begins at the front entryway, where a peaceful koi pond with flowing waterfalls welcomes you home. Pass through the threshold to the spacious open plan perfect for entertaining, as walls of glass and multiple skylights invite a soothing cascade of natural light and sliding doors in the front and back open to a covered, screened lanai. The entire first floor has been completely refurbished with all new appliances, drywall and insulation, electric and plumbing, A/C units, and LED lighting. Also set on the first floor, the master suite boasts separate his and her bathrooms and an en-suite office. An atrium with a 20' tall ceiling separates the first floor from the second floor, where 2 guest bedrooms are located in a separate wing upstairs, with a Jack-and-Jill bath and private entrance to the open oversized pool and caged spa. Additional features include an extra family room or game room, plenty of storage and closet space, a new back-generator, and a voluminous two-car garage with room for guest parking. Enjoy endless opportunities with the option to subdivide into two 10,000-sq.-ft. lots and build two new waterfront homes. Located in the Sleepy Lagoon section of Longboat Key, this property is within walking distance to the beach. St. Armands and downtown Sarasota are just a short drive away.
