Location, location, location. Nestled on a quiet street just off Shade Avenue this California style ranch home sits on a large botanically landscaped lot. Low maintenance exotic plants and charming paver paths in both the front and back yards create an almost meditative state. A split bedroom plan, the master suite with double door entrance is on one side with direct lanai and pool access. The core of the home features a spacious foyer, open LR/DR to one side and Family room with two bedrooms and a shared bath as well as a fourth bedroom suite at the end of the hall with a separate door. The home is centered around an almost new open kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, large farm porcelain sink and cabinets all with pull out drawers, even the pantry cabinetry. One and a half blocks from Tamiami Trail and Trader Joes, close to schools and all that Sarasota has to offer, this home is ready for your casual lifestyle and lots of entertaining. AC replaced in 2014 and roof in 2009.
