GREAT LOCATION. This beautifully renovated 3-bedroom/2-bath home feels like new construction. Nestled in the gated Oak Court community, one of Sarasota's most secluded neighborhoods (64 homes) off of Fruitville Road, it’s just 5 minutes from I-75 and 10 minutes from Lakewood Ranch or downtown Sarasota. Much of the house has been updated in the past three years. It has a custom kitchen with 15” deep cabinets, roll-out shelves, custom book shelves and storage, quartz counter top, a hand-painted back splash and GE Cafe appliances. Other updates include a remodeled hallway bath/laundry room; an updated master bath; plantation shutters; custom base board throughout; a GE hybrid heat pump water heater (costs less than half traditional to operate); a new garage door opener with a quiet rubber belt drive; new light fixtures; chandelier and ceiling fan replaced in the past three years; handmade mantle and custom glass fireplace insert; solid core doors, louvered closet doors and oil-rubbed bronze hardware throughout. There are 10-12-foot ceilings throughout. This home site backs up to a preserve with a natural spring, making the lot feel much larger. Enjoy watching otters, turtles, woodpeckers, owls, cormorants, humming birds and a variety of other Florida wildlife from the breakfast nook or back yard.
