A Tropical Paradise tucked away in the heart of Sarasota! This custom-built Lee Wetherington home presents a unique open floor plan and is situated on 215 feet of private shoreline on Phillippi Creek in a lush, very private setting. Phillippi Creek is a scenic, serene, wide waterway with access to Sarasota Bay. A beautiful new 30 ft boat dock, for shallow draft boats, has just been completed. The tranquil, large magnificent back yard with majestic Oaks along the Creek is a caress for the soul. The residence offers a large great-room with wood burning fireplace, exquisite exotic hardwood floors, beautiful, high coffered ceilings, with a well-equipped open kitchen which makes this home perfect for family gatherings and entertaining. Large sliders which open all the way, are connecting the indoors with the outdoors and lead to the huge lanai and deck area, all this overlooking the elevated salt-water pool, back yard and Creek. Upstairs is a fabulous, very spacious master suite, with fireplace, coffered ceilings, space for a gym or office and a wonderful, large terrace overlooking the yard and creek. There is an additional 1,100 sf of under-air bonus space on the ground floor - ideal for a gym, game room, or storage. The very spacious 6+ car "drive thru" garage has room for all the family cars and can be accessed from two sides. The house is engineered to have an elevator installed. Home earned the Build Smart Certification by FPL. Located in a small, private community in an excellent school district, only a few minutes from the world class beaches on Siesta Key, and within short distance to everything Sarasota has to offer.
