"Tropical compound" in Sapphire Shores! This property on Sun Circle, sits directly across from a waterfront park providing full Sarasota Bay views and year-round sunsets over Longboat Key. Build here for remarkable views or enjoy the comfortable home on grade. The architect/owner’s inspiration is a “Craftsman Ranch” styled home with an open plan including vaulted, tongue & groove ceilings, oak floors and a wood burning fireplace. Looking west, and out to the water you’ll find a wall of french doors and clerestory windows allowing unobstructed views. Your Florida lifestyle may take you out to the front porch and spacious patio overlooking Sun Circle Park or you might prefer the private retreat off the kitchen which contains a lagoon pool and entertaining cabana surrounded by foliage reminiscent of Costa Rican retreats. The master suite also has a vaulted ceiling, bay views and shares access to the porch/patio. There’s a generous walk-in closet and a separate tub & shower. The second bedroom has a walk-in closet and shares a unique indoor/outdoor shower which may transport you far from Sarasota to a private jungle oasis. A home office and plenty of room for storage and a workshop round out the first floor. An income generating guest apartment with a private entry is on the second floor and has a full kitchen, balcony and vintage Florida design details including wood floors and a raised ceiling. There’s plenty of parking for your guests with a circle drive in the front and a side driveway off Sapphire Drive providing access to the two car garage. Here is where you will find the laundry and additional storage which can be upgraded to many possible uses. The landscaping has been chosen with care and an eye toward Florida native species. We would also be remiss if we did not mention one of the most prolific mango trees in the entire neighborhood! This oversized parcel in Sapphire Shores, is nestled between the Ringling Museum of Art, the Asolo Performing Arts Hall, the Sarasota Ballet and many other cultural and historic amenities. The location is 2 miles north of downtown Sarasota, a short drive over the Ringling Bridge to St. Armands Circle and Gulf of Mexico beaches and very near University Parkway anchored on the west by the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport and on the east by UTC Shopping district and the “coming soon” Mote Aquarium.
