Property Description

Idyllic residence resting on the water's edge of Little Sarasota Bay surrounded in exotic tropical gardens, this "old world" design is about romance inside and out and was created by discerning perfectionists in 2006-2007. Construction done at that time of the majority of the home, except bedroom section, with large living spaces having spectacular vast water views. Exquisite details researched for just the right elements: enter through a courtyard with trickling fountain to a massive patio, with imported Cantera Stone Mexican Columns, and a commissioned hand-painted Mexican mural. Inside find vaulted ceilings, terra-cotta flooring, extensive use of Talavera tiling throughout, even floor to ceiling in Florida room. The custom kitchen with
gorgeous solid wood cabinets, granite, stainless, is centered in the home. Mexican Chandeliers and Moroccan lighting, carved doors and columns, numerous built-in features. Authentic cap and pan tile roof, with Old World-style corbels, add to the exterior charm, with a fully fenced yard and a 17x33 sparkling heated pool, surrounded in pavers. Enjoy BBQ's and cocktails, or throw out a line for a fresh catch, while watching year-round sunsets. Enviably situated location offers immediate access to downtown, Pine View school, YMCA and shopping. One has the rare combination of being in a very private world, seeing nothing but stunning water views, dolphins, manatees and shorebirds, without the traffic concerns often associated with living on a barrier island.
