Property description

Lovely, spacious villa in friendly Village des Pins just minutes away from Siesta Key Beach voted #1 beach in the USA in 2011 and again in 2014! All on one level with washer and dryer in unit, luxurious king size bed in master bedroom and twin beds in second bedroom. Free high speed internet, cable T.V. and phone. Attached garage.

We remodeled our kitchen a few years ago so we bought new appliances and installed granite counter tops. Kitchen is very well equipped and we even have an electric kettle for those of you who must have a 'real cuppa'!!

Village des Pins is a 25 acre park like setting with just 112 well spaced single story villas. There are lighted tennis courts, a huge heated swimming pool, hot tub, shuffleboard and community barbecue grills (gas and charcoal) outside and a beautiful clubhouse with pool table, TV, library and games inside. Many activities during the 'snowbird' season.

9 minutes walk to Macy's door in Sarasota Square Mall! Ample shopping within a short driving distance. 15 minutes to downtown Sarasota with its hotels, cultural activities, theater and many restaurants and a short drive to the famous St. Armand's Circle with shopping, restaurants and Lido Key Beach. For the golf lover there are 30 championship golf courses in and around Sarasota but there are also courses for those of you who prefer something less challenging!

The owners live in Sarasota and it is reassuring to know we are just 10 minutes away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Born and raised in the UK Ross and Jane spent 10 years living in Canada before settling in the Chicago area for 30 years. We fell in love with Sarasota 15 years ago and are so happy to be finally living here permanently. We live 5 minutes drive from the villa so are close by in case of any problems.

Why the Owner Chose Village des Pins:
We searched the Sarasota area to find the right property to be our retirement home. We looked at condos on the beach, villas on the golf course but as soon as we drove into Village des Pins we did not look any further. The villa needed some TLC which we have given it over the years and it is nice and clean and comfortable.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
location, location, location! We are so close to everything in Sarasota and the surrounding area. A quiet little enclave with only 112 homes with lots of space inside and out. This can truly be your home away from home and our repeat guests feel exactly that, we have many families who return every year for their Sarasota top up!
