Perfectly positioned for privacy and to capture long lake views, this stunning residence is sited on just over ¾ of an acre in the gated community of The Preserve at Heron Lake. This Arthur Rutenberg home was beautifully designed to blend classic architectural elements and exceptional modern finishes to create a stunning yet functional living space. The impressive ceiling detail, neutral tile floors, granite countertops, custom millwork and huge banks of windows and doors are just some of the features that make this home special. The living room flows seamlessly to the adjacent dining room and kitchen creating an amazing entertaining space. The kitchen, outfitted with custom cherry wood cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, an enormous functional island, wet-bar area, walk-in pantry, and a large breakfast nook, will impress even the most discerning chef. The family room and game room both open to the expansive lanai and pool area. The spa-like master suite and office are situated on one side of the home, while the 3 guest bedrooms are on the other side, resulting in the utmost privacy for family and guests. The lanai features a heated saltwater lap pool with swim jets and colored pool lights, a sauna, a firepit, and an outdoor kitchen. There is a large 3-car garage with built-in storage cabinet, 2 instant gas water heaters, newer landscaping, newer HVAC (2019), newer exterior paint (2019), and newly painted interior (2020). Very well maintained by original owner. All this in a quiet community of only 32 homes with great access to all that living in Sarasota has to offer. See Matterport link for 360 view of each room.
