Property Description

Under contract-accepting backup offers. Welcome to Sapphire Heights surrounded by Sapphire Shores and Indian Beach which together form a trio of desirable neighborhoods West of the Trail in North Sarasota close to the beautiful Sarasota Bay. This charming 3 bedroom/3 bathroom home has been lovingly updated to a more modern feel while still maintaining its original character. As you drive up the circular driveway you will be impressed with not only the curb appeal of the home but also the true Floridian yard on display with a wide range of tropical foliage including many different types of palms, ferns and exotic flowering plants. Entering this immaculate home your eyes will be drawn to the stunning porcelain tile floors that flow throughout except for the guest bedrooms which have engineered wood flooring. The feel of this home is light and bright due to the many windows, 2 skylights and glass block strategically placed. All windows are rated hurricane impact except for the French doors in the primary bedroom and the glass block. What follows is a list of just some of the major upgrades: Kitchen has been remodeled to include all new white cabinetry and granite countertops. The primary bathroom was redesigned with a new glass enclosed shower, new cabinets, countertops as well as all new toilets, mirrors, lights and faucets. Attractive Hunter Douglass white Plantation shutters on most of the windows. New designer fans throughout. A niche in the living room wall was redone to allow for a mounted TV and a new Scion 43 inch electric fireplace which adds to the ambiance of the home. By doing this it also created a handy storage room. Many other smaller upgrades add to the absolute beauty of this gem of a house. Stepping outside you are transported to your own slice of paradise. An oasis of tranquility for you to enjoy! The cool, inviting salt water pool was resurfaced in 2022 and waterline tile was also replaced. Expansive paver stone deck surrounds the pool allowing room for chairs to lounge around and plenty of room for the grill of your choice. The back yard landscaping is just as appealing as the front yard. There is a large wood deck with a trellis which lends itself to many entertaining possibilities. And for the boater there is a fenced enclosure for water toys or a small RV. The yard is fully fenced with white vinyl. All upgrades were completed by the current owner between 2020 and 2023. New A/C in 2020. The home is in the center of the "Arts" world in Sarasota with the Ringing Art Museum and Asolo Theatre just to the north and the Ringling School of Art a few blocks to the south. Sapphire Heights is only a short drive from the vibrant downtown where top of the line restaurants & performing arts venues abound. Over the Ringling Bridge you'll find the trendy shops of St. Armand's Circle and many more dining options. If it is beaches you are looking for be sure to explore Lido and Siesta Key, two world-class beaches that the community is very proud of! Only 15-20 minutes to drive. Don't forget to visit Sapphire Shores Park on the bay front to witness one of the spectacular Sarasota sunsets less than a mile away. Easy access to I-75, Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport and UTC shopping Mall.
