Location, Location, Location. West of Trail, in beautiful Coral Cove, across from bay, on canal with private dock, just 5 minutes from Siesta Key. 7 houses from the open waters of Sarasota Bay, with no bridges. This waterfront home was rebuilt from the ground up with over 5,000 square feet of interior space, and neutral finishes. No deed restrictions, no mandatory HOA fees and no flood insurance required. Largest lot in all of Coral Cove-- at 26,000 sqft – in a gracious and established neighborhood. This home is now available for under $499 per square foot. This home's unusually high elevation raises it outside of the flood zone, even though it's uniquely surrounded by 3 bodies of water! In fact, it's one of the few waterfront houses in Sarasota that are across from the bay, surrounded by 2 canals, that is not in a mandatory flood zone. You'll love the well designed interior space, with 10' and 12' volume ceilings throughout. Flexible floor plan allows for work, play and entertaining options throughout the home. Approximately 80% of the home's space is on the ground floor, while a spacious light filled master suite occupies the entire second floor. The expansive great room anchors the center of the home, with 3 sets of arched french doors looking out at the oversized commercial grade heated pool. The open kitchen offers granite counters, a breakfast bar and eat in dining space, plus a spacious walk in pantry. It is conveniently open to a wet bar, family room, and dining room, with great views of the pool and lush landscaping. Green home features include new energy efficient dual zoned air conditioners with anti allergy UV technology and smart thermostats. Storage throughout the home is abundant with walk in closets, light and bright laundry room, and oversized garage with 11 foot ceilings and storage above. You'll be in the heart of Sarasota's cultural arts, top dining, and shopping, plus some of Sarasota's top schools including nationally ranked Pine View School. This gracious home has been well maintained and is ready for your personal touch. This is the one!
