A peaceful, hidden gem on Siesta Key, this enchanting tropical enclave is truly an oasis. The waterfront community of Sandy Cove I is pet-friendly and boasts a private, crystalline sand beach in a tropical cove, and a fishing pier on Big Pass on the Gulf of Mexico. Designed by award-winning Sarasota School of Architecture Architect Frank Folsom Smith, this lakefront 2 bed/2 bath condo is private, cozy and inviting. With nearly 1,500 square feet of living space and a private lanai that extends the length of the living room and kitchen, your unobstructed vista of the spring-fed lake with fountain is unparalleled. Steeped in mid-century charm, with exposed brick, classic lines and “great bones”, the main living areas feature high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling sliders and atrium-like windows that allow natural light to flow throughout. A separate formal dining area with wet bar, a small office nook overlooking the enclosed and screened in private courtyard, as well as a passthrough from the kitchen to the living room, all add to the unique charm of this home. The spacious kitchen features granite countertops and lots of cupboard space, flanked by the serene lake and cozy courtyard. Nicely updated bathrooms with an ensuite bath in the master, with plenty of closet space and direct access to the home from the one-car garage, as well as a parking spot right outside your front door. With the Gulf of Mexico right outside your door, magnificent sunsets and panoramic views are yours to enjoy daily. The private beach and pier make for unbeatable spots for fishing, kayaking and paddleboarding. Just steps away is Siesta Key “Village”, with its shops, cafes, restaurants, and outdoor venues with lively local musicians provides the perfect mix of modern-day amenities and old island charm. Take a stroll to the Sunday Farmer's Market in the heart of the Village, go for a swim in the spring-fed Cedar Lake just off your back patio, or ride your bike to the sparkling sands of Siesta Key Beach. Siesta Key is a natural paradise. The eight-mile barrier island is a sheltering habitat for a host of native water birds, dolphins, and manatees and other aquatic wildlife. The world sings the praises of its beaches-five, awe-inspiring miles of pristine sand along the tranquil Gulf of Mexico. A short drive away you will find Downtown Sarasota and St. Armand’s Circle, world-renowned for their arts & cultural offerings, where you will enjoy a plethora of fine dining and shopping options, Lovers of the Arts can take in the world-class Sarasota Orchestra, the Ringling Museum, or a performance at the Opera House, as well as a bevy of award-winning theatrical venues and art galleries. For outdoor enthusiasts, golfers and boat lovers, the choices abound! Lovingly maintained, the roof was replaced in 2018, and 2 new HVAC systems were installed in 2019 and 2020. This unit truly is one-of-a-kind, and ideal as a seasonal getaway or for year-round enjoyment. So, come bask in the Florida sunshine and luxuriate in the sparkling blue waters of Siesta Key beach, consistently ranked as the #1 beach in the nation. Recline in a comfortable beach chair and relax with a good book on the pristine private beach. Enjoy tropical breezes off the fishing pier practically outside your door. Walk into this living postcard, then swim, collect shells and soak up the sun… or spend the day doing exactly nothing.
