You are in for a real treat when you see this charming, craftsman style bungalow located in close proximity to vibrant downtown Sarasota and Ringling College of Art and Design. This 1920’s home in Bayou Oaks has been lovingly preserved and restored with some modern conveniences added for your enjoyment. You enter the home into the Florida room which adjoins the living room complete with a wood burning fireplace flanked by original double hung wood windows and hardwood floors. There are three total bedrooms in this home. Currently, the main house has two bedrooms and one bath with its own entrance. The guest area of the home has a separate entrance which includes one bedroom with walk-in closet, one bath and combo living, dining, and kitchen areas. The main house is 1260 sf, and the guest area is 550 sf. There is a handy craftsman built-in butler’s pantry in the main house. If one wanted the main house and guest area combined, this is where the doorway originally was and could easily be reopened by the new owner. The new 2020 upgrades include the metal roof, electrical panel, interior painting and exterior painting. The two-zoned HVAC and tankless hot water heater is newer. The guest area could be used as an art studio or home office. This guest area has an open floor plan with a French door leading to a wood deck overlooking mature landscaped gardens. The main house kitchen has a large vintage cupboard along with the modern conveniences of new appliances and updated cabinetry. The main bathroom has a claw footed tub with hand shower. Don’t miss the beautiful stained glass windows in each bedroom. This home features a common closet laundry area outside between the main house and guest area; the Bosch washer and dryer are included in sale. Carport top has been replaced with a pergola type roof with palm fronds over the rafters giving a “wiki hut” effect. Sky vine and trumpet vine have been planted at the corners for a flowering arbor someday. Simply add an aluminum roof, and the carport could be used again. There's a whimsical Bavarian Baroque Japanese Tea house style workshop or shed and another 10 x 14 shed with trellised passionflower vines and plantings. For the gardener, you will be delighted with the one of a kind boat garden! Growing now are tomatoes, kale, parsley, mint, rosemary and onions. Current leases expire 12/31/2020. Walk to the beautiful Sarasota Succulent Society at the end of the street! The location of this home is prime, being just a short distance to downtown, cultural venues, restaurants and world-class powder sand beaches. This oasis is magical!
