West of Trail Classic Design & Timeless Luxury

Sold in 9 days


Traditional West-of-Trail home where classic design and timeless luxury elevate the comforts of home. Located in historic Bayview Heights, an iconic Sarasota neighborhood tucked between Cherokee Park and McClellan Park, extreme serenity from end-of-the-road seclusion flows throughout the home for an overall feeling of tranquility.


This home sits on a double lot with lush, fenced-in grounds surrounded by privacy landscape. Enter through hand-carved mahogany front doors into a lofty living room with vaulted ceiling, wood-burning fireplace and wall-to-wall glass doors that lead to the covered patio, gazebo and travertine bedecked swimming pool. The large kitchen with eat-in center island is open to the family room and adjacent to the dining room. The family room opens to the outdoor living space, and the dining room opens to the kitchen through pocket doors, which can be left open for family meals or closed for formal dinners. The home’s four bedrooms include an upstairs master retreat with two balconies, as well as a downstairs bedroom wing with a private guest suite and two additional bedrooms. Across the master suite, a solid-wood paneled den/office completes the owner’s retreat. Fine finishes include marble tile flooring, 5-inch baseboards, crown molding, fluted square columns and solid wood cabinetry.


Designed for enjoying the outdoors as much as indoors, the home has a covered patio with vaulted-ceiling gazebo and large 14x30 pool. Convenient in-town location just a half mile to Southside Elementary, one mile to Southside Village and Sarasota Memorial Hospital, 2 miles to downtown Sarasota and 5 miles to Siesta Key Beach. The effective build date of this home is 1989. The home was completely rebuilt on and around the existing slab.
