About the Property

Contemporary1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, 750 Sq. Ft. Great Location Near All Attractions

Location! Location! Location! This apartment is part of a 'duplex' (side-by-side, QUIET flats) built in the 1920's with separate, private entrances; one bedroom, one bath on each side. Please see VRBO # 455693 for the adjacent rental space. [NOTE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had CANCELLATIONS IN JANUARY and MARCH 2017 in the adjacent unit noted.. THESE DATES WILL FILL FAST WHEN THE COLD WEATHER HITS IN THE NORTH].

The interior remodeling for this side was just completed with new kitchen cabinets and upscale appliances, which include a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with ice-maker, a dishwasher, an electric flat surface cooktop stove with large oven, and a microwave oven. The kitchen also comes equipped with all small appliances and tools needed for the gourmet cook. All floors are solid eco-friendly bamboo, except for the bathroom which is slate tile. The bedroom is a good size and features a queen-sized bed with storage drawers beneath, a four drawer dresser, a mirrored closet space with plenty of hangers. The open living/dining area is spacious and features contemporary style furnishings. The space also contains a work station/computer area with two seats and built-in WiFi.

There is a pet friendly, fenced, rear garden that has a great patio space with separate gas barbecues, and two separate dining tables with seating for four at each. The yard also includes a separate building which contains a clothes washer and electric dryer AND beach chairs for you to use when the occasion arises.

A five minute walk takes you to Arlington Park to enjoy free use of a heated Olympic sized pool, lighted tennis and basketball courts. There is a great walking/jogging trail through the park that leads to a fenced dog park. They also have a great PICKLE BALL League that meets 3 times a week in the gym.

For groceries you can just head to Publix, a fully stocked supermarket, which is just 1 1/2 miles away, or continue on to downtown in order to find the famous Whole Foods store. There are many other options too, like Morton's Gourmet Market (right in Southside Village).

And although the street location is extremely quiet, 'civilization' is about one mile away at Southside Village on the corner of Hillview and Osprey Streets, with shops, restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes. For more excitement you can head to downtown Sarasota where Main Street is filled with many diverse shops and restaurants. At the lower end of Main Street you will find the bayfront marina where there is boat dockage, two waterfront restaurtants, and a great walking park along the waterfront. Nearby, a section of the old Ringling Bridge was saved and converted to a fishing pier with a bait shop, and pole rentals available.

A 5-6 mile drive takes you to either Sarasota's famous Crescent Beach on Siesta Key or Lido Beach on St. Armand's Key. Both areas are great for walking and have village-like areas for shopping and dining. If you are a golfer, there are a more than a dozen clubs to choose from (that suit all levels of play) that are within a 10 to 30 minute drive.

Very near Arlington Park with a heated Olympic size pool, tennis courts, basket ball courts, handball courts, and walking trails with a fenced, dog park area. It is about a 20 minute walk (one plus miles) to Southside Village with several pubs, restaurants and shops, including Morton's Gourment Market.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We have lived in Sarasota since 1979 and own a small custom remodeling company. Kit and I both grew up and got our college degrees in New Jersey where we met while we were teaching.

Why the Owner Chose Arlington Park, Sarasota, FL, USA:
Waldemere Stereet is centrally located and provides easy access to downtown, the bay front, and the beaches if you head west, and going east there are many 'to do' things to partake of including golf courses, major and minor league baseball stadiums, serious shopping, nature parks with birds and aligators, a Big Cat Habitat for rescued circus and zoo animals. You can literally arrive at any of these places from Waldemere in less time than it will take to have lunch.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We enjoy the look of the 1920's Old Florida cottage on this quiet street, and the fact that we totally updated and modernized the interior.
