Beautiful remodeled home on a canal with direct access to the Intracoastal Waterway of Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Located in the exclusive waterfront 45-home enclave of Longboat Key Estates, where residents and their guests have their very own deeded beach with gated entry access. The private beach frontage includes a tiki hut equipped with picnic bench and shower. Longboat Key Estates also offers a community dock facing the Sarasota Bay for friends to visit, boating enthusiasts, and hobby fisherman. The community borders with Bayfront Park offering tennis courts, kayak launch with rentals, dog park and more. The home is situated 7 houses from the Intracoastal Waterway of Sarasota Bay and offers 100 ft. of water frontage, Lumber Rock composite boat dock spanning 70 ft. equipped with a 30 and 20 amp power, dock spigot, aluminum fish cleaning table, lighting, remote controlled 10K boat lift, and shallow water cradle. The seawall and caps were updated just 8 years ago. Enjoy your tropical oasis and host friends from the 444 sq. ft. paver covered lanai with additional paver deck around the 15 ft. x 42 ft. gas heated pool. Surrounded by tropical landscaping, the quaint porch paver courtyard allows for additional outdoor living space and creates a welcoming environment to greet guests before they even enter the home. Airy and bright open floor living space opens to water views through two sets of glass sliders that can be completely hidden in their pockets. New vinyl “wood” plank flooring that blends the graceful beauty of hardwood with the versatility of waterproof vinyl plank runs through the main living areas excluding the laundry room. New carpet installed less than a month ago in all the bedrooms. Each bedroom has its very own ductless mini split A/C to accommodate each occupants comfort. The large master bedroom room features partial walk-in closet, en suite bathroom, large windows, and glass pocket sliding doors with views of the canal and entry into the lanai. The master bathroom was completely remodeled in 2020 with neutral color scheme featuring walk-in shower with niche, quartz counters, stainless steal fixtures, and solid wood white shaker cabinetry. Main bathroom was also remodeled in 2020 with a coastal aesthetic featuring vertical shiplap running mid wall, quartz counter with large sink, and two stainless steel faucets, large linen closet and wood look tile. Beautiful timeless kitchen was remodeled this year and features white shaker cabinetry, polished 3 x 9 marble backsplash, beautiful designer polished nickel 2-Handle Bridge Kitchen Faucet, polished quartz counters, polished nickel hardware, and new Samsung appliances replaced under a month ago (dishwasher 3 yrs old). Gas is available for gas range if desired. Other updates include: new garage door in 2015; new gutters, pool heater, pool pump, and pool resurfaced in 2016; new AC and 3 ductless mini AC splits in 2017 with warranty until 2027; reroof in 2017 with warranty; new pool cage in 2017; exterior and interior painted in 2020. Longboat Key Estates uses a community well for lawn irrigation. The central location on Longboat Key makes this an ideal island home as you can relax and enjoy the private tropical oasis with pelicans and manatees in your backyard but then a 10 min drive to New Pass brings you to St. Armands Circle for world-class shopping and dining. Be rewarded with beautiful Bay sunrises and Gulf of Mexico sunsets in this perfect island home!
