Imagine living within a short stroll to Siesta Key Village and Siesta Key's spectacular beaches! This adorable, lovingly maintained waterfront home, tucked away in a quiet and tranquil neighborhood offers all this and more. This classic beach cottage with original heart pine tongue & groove walls, ceilings and floors has been lovingly updated and modernized to keep the integrity for a comfortable, casual, coastal Florida lifestyle. This home offers two possible master suites with en-suite baths, one downstairs and one upstairs. The shady yard is pleasant even for hot summer days and has ample room for pool. Hot tub will stay for future enjoyment, however not warranted. This secluded and private property offers 80 feet of waterfront. Canal has been dredged recently, feeds directly into the Grand Canal just around the corner and has excellent boating water, with only one fixed bridge to the Bay and Intracoastal Waterway. After 30 years of happy island living, this family decided, that it is time to downsize. Homes in this very special neighborhood, close to Village and Beach, however far enough away from all the bustle, come rarely on the market. This cottage incorporates the absolute best in Siesta Key Living – walkability to beaches, shopping, and dining; purposeful incorporation of indoor/outdoor living, private shoreline for any watersport enthusiast, and convenient access to Sarasota’s multitude of cultural, culinary, and entertainment venues.
