You'll love this vintage waterfront beach home in popular Siesta Isles on Siesta Key, located across the street from the world-famous, powdery white sands and azure waters of Siesta Beach, previously rated the #1 beach in the nation.

Kitchen was remodeled about 15 years ago. Sited on a large, beautifully landscaped, private tropical lot with a beautiful water view and plenty of room for a pool. A short distance to quaint Siesta Village, where you'll enjoy the many restaurants and boutiques. Just 15 minutes by boat to the open waters of Sarasota Bay, or15 minutes by car to experience the arts and dining of cultural downtown Sarasota.
