Move-in and immediately begin enjoying this three-bedroom home in this newer, family-friendly neighborhood. This charming enclave of custom residences is just minutes from Sarasota’s “cultural coast”, where a short drive will take you to pristine Gulf beaches, theaters, trendy eateries, the Bayfront Park, farmer’s markets, and wonderful shopping options. Lush, manicured landscaping connects this contemporary home to the private, sidewalk lined street. Inside, the open layout of the Gasper home plan makes entertaining easy and inviting. Each corner of the more than 2,000 square foot interior is flooded with natural light. The sunny and bright great-room design features neutral tones, volume ceilings with tray and crown molding details, plenty of windows, arched walkways, custom light fixtures, and oversized tile flooring that connects the open-plan living space with an effortless flow. The great room and dining room are arranged around the eat-in kitchen that overlooks each space. This sumptuous area offers an extended island with room to dine, unique tile backsplash, all-white cabinetry, stainless-steel appliances, plus pantry closet and Butler’s pantry. The primary suite is located in a northwest spot and has a very large, custom-designed walk-in closet, its own bathroom outfitted with granite countertops, large glass/tiled shower and private water closet. Two guest bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom to the east for optimal privacy. Sliding glass doors lead out to the covered outdoor entertaining area just off the living room, with a backyard enclosed in a protective fence. Brick pavers were extended outside to enlarge this relaxing space, featuring a covered dining area, hanging lights, and lounge area under an umbrella.
