Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: The owners, Bill and Molly bought their first triplex on Calle Miramar in '89. They've lived on Siesta Key ever since then and are very familiar with all that Sarasota has to offer.
'We think Siesta Key is a great place to live, you can go to the beach three times a day, catch the sunsets at night and park your car on a Friday night and not have to drive again until Monday morning.'
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Siesta Key Village: The Siesta Key Blue Cottage is the second property we've owned on Calle Miramar. It's a sought after location just 1/2 block to both the Beach and the Village. Built in 1949, it has withstood the test of time and is one of the few remaining examples on Siesta Key of the Florida Bungalow.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Unique benefits to this property are it's a ground floor, one floor housing unit. No flights of stairs to haul your bags up. An easy walk with a chair and beach towel gets you to the quieter end of Siesta Beach without trying to find parking! And it's a short walk, not a drive or ride, into Siesta Village where you have many restaurants to choose from. Location, location, location.
