Separated from Osprey Avenue by a gate post adorned with a tiled Cherokee rose and a low, stucco wall, you’ll find Cherokee Park, an exclusive neighborhood with grand lots platted in 1926, situated on Sarasota Bay and just steps to sought after Southside Elementary School. As you wind your way through splendid oaks that form a canopy in the South Lodge section, you’ll come upon this magnificent example of Old Florida craftsmanship overlooking a private canal, just doors in from open Sarasota Bay. The lot is over a third of an acre with stately oaks and 69 feet of seawall on the canal for grand views down the waterway, a hidden gem of a location for a new home should you be looking to build. If you prefer a Florida lodge, enjoy the house as is. The main floor is open with an oversized living room, a grand fireplace trimmed with stone and an adjacent family room, each enjoying tranquil water views. The Owner’s Retreat, also on the first floor, is spacious and inviting. Upstairs you will find a grand space that opens onto a deck with sweeping water views. It could be reworked to make up to three bedrooms. Here is your vintage palette. Add a touch here or there, or paint a new picture. Either way, the end result will be draped in brilliant nature at its best. See attachments for proposed plans, survey and other information.
