Welcome to your contemporary home - West of the Trail - less than a mile to the sandy white beaches of Siesta Key! Florence neighborhood is a wonderful peaceful community- right next to Phillippi Estate Park. This home has been updated and remodeled, but there is still a bit of it's mid-century character in place. Walk into the foyer and open living area with 16 foot ceilings, and you realize what you can do with an older home. Renovations include some new plumbing and electric wiring, new architecture, newer a.c., new flooring, new baths, new kitchen, many "green" features, new impact resistant windows, outdoor shower, beautiful large lanai for entertaining with an area plumbed for an outdoor kitchen. The backyard is fenced in with plenty of room for a pool. There is gas for cooking in your modern kitchen, granite counters, pull out shelves, and a beautiful bar area. There is a efficient laundry room with ironing board cabinet and large sink. This house is designed to provide passive cooling by removing the hot air with the high windows; seller runs air about 5 mos. out of the year. If you love the contemporary homes in the older neighborhoods, being close to the beaches, downtown, hospital, and shopping, then this home is perfect for you!
