This Sarasota School of Architecture home sits on Siesta Key's waterfront. Built in the 50’s but artfully renovated and on a quiet cul-de-sac, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath home will appeal to the connoisseur who appreciates vintage architecture. A creative blend of true mid-century modern with an urban edge, you'll realize this home is very special upon entry through the Porte-cochere, stainless steel front door & glass foyer. The use of Brazilian cherry floors with both vintage and modern tile treatments throughout the home add to its appeal. Walls of glass, transom windows and huge sliding doors, combined with sleek angles of early modern design, focus on the water and add to the feeling of living outdoors. A guest suite/office area with a wet bar, fridge and full bath which could be a second master suite. The spacious master bedroom suite features a wall of glass, 6 x 9 sitting area, original built-ins and a bath. The huge covered lanai houses a renovated free form pool, leading to an open composite sun deck with artistic, urban stainless & cable fencing to the dock with 12,000lb boat lift. There is a big circular drive with additional outside storage. Brand new mature landscaping adds to this one of a kind property. Conveniently located to Siesta Key Village and Siesta Beach. 15 minutes by boat to the open bay, and by car to cultural downtown Sarasota.
