Set on nearly three acres near Palm Aire Country Club, this enchanting estate is poised on a tranquil ten-acre lake and surrounded by a 55 - acre preserve. Rarely is there a setting of such majesty and privacy so close to heart of Sarasota. The custom home is gracefully woven into its natural surroundings. A bright, open floor plan is ideal for entertaining or enjoying peaceful afternoons with family. Wood floors, plantation shutters, crown molding define elegance. The formal living and dining room greet guests. The family room boasts a distinctive gas fireplace and opens to the spacious custom kitchen equipped with breakfast bar, antique oven, and plenty of counter space. The eat-in cafe overlooks postcard perfect lake views. Marble baths and custom closets round out the private spaces. Once outside, a series of outdoor living spaces are a masterclass in the Sarasota lifestyle. There are two covered areas for dining alfresco or relaxing in the shade that overlook the lake. The spectacular lakefront pool and spa features a Pebble Tec finish. Custom exterior lighting and romantic winding walkways provide a park-like experience throughout the property and down to the lake and firepit. A wealth of expansive driveways provide plenty of space for parking your vehicles, boats, or RV (no deed restrictions). Conservatory Park is a 5-minute walk away boasting wildlife, paved walking paths, and a covered picnic area. Only ten minutes from downtown, airport, University Town Center, and more.
