Property description

A dramatic, two story, Georgian-style brick residence. 10 ft. ceilings, 4-5 spacious bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. A formal living and dining room, a fully upgraded kitchen and a large, open family room. A wall of doors opens from the family room to the screened lanai with resort style pool, outdoor cooking and entertaining areas.

The Braden River flows along the rear perimeter of the private 1.5 acre property. Beyond the adjacent pond is a view of the 9th green of the 18 hole golf course. It's a nature lover's retreat, complete with a rustic outdoor fire pit, hammock and wooden deck, yet it's only 5 minutes from I-75.

This home is convenient to all that Florida has to offer. It's located two miles from downtown Lakewood Ranch which offers shopping, cinema, restaurants and night life. It's located 10-15 miles from downtown Sarasota, Ringling Museum, Crosley Mansion, St. Armand's Circle, etc., where world class dining, theater and music venues are popular. The award winning beaches of Siesta Key, Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island are easily accessible, as well. The newly completed Benderson Rowing Recreational Area is only 5 minutes away. The Bollittieri Soccer Fields are 5 minutes away. The new, upscale University Town Center Shopping Mall is also 5 minutes away.
