Property Description

Discover Siesta Isles, only moments away from world-renowned Siesta Beach and Siesta Village. From sunsets on the sand to an early morning kayak expedition, imagine the relaxed, island-lifestyle and yet enjoy the convenience of downtown Sarasota's unmatched cultural scene. If you have a young family, Out-of-Door Academy Lower School and St. Boniface Pre-school are less than two miles away. Ride your bike to Siesta Key Gym or walk across the street for a morning run on the beach. You'll never tire of evening sunset walks, especially to watch the Sunday evening Drum Circle. No need to run off Key for last minute grocery items when Morton's Siesta Market stocks all the local favorites. This home offers you a casual, carefree beach lifestyle
with a touch of elegance. The homeowners designed the residence with small and large gatherings in mind and was custom built by their father, who was a prominent local area builder for over twenty-five years. Enjoy salty breezes from the second story balcony with spiral staircase leading down to the private saltwater pool and screened patio. Located on the tranquil Grand Canal, moor your boat at the lighted dock with convenient cleaning station, 10,000 lb. and 16,000 lb. lifts, all just a cruise away from Sarasota Bay. Rich in features and details, this 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom haven is ideal for those who want their own slice of island paradise in a secluded, wonderfully picturesque setting.
