1351 Harbor Drive, Sarasota, FL
One of the prettiest homes in Harbor Acres, this four bedroom custom home sits beautifully behind gates on a large parcel of land. Warm & inviting the exterior may remind you of a French manor house. As you enter through tall mahogany doors onto oak floors, the quality of construction is very much in evidence with crafted built-ins, wide crown moldings, high ceilings & everything you need for entertaining friends & family. A great center island kitchen with cherry cabinetry, separate butler’s pantry, 5-burner gas cook top, two wall ovens, bar seating, kitchen desk, breakfast nook & extensive storage is the hearth of the home. Plenty of room to gather and chat with the chef of the day. There is also a refrigerated storage room for your extra groceries & supplies. The extensive master suite is on the 1st level as is an en-suite bedroom. An office with French doors boasts full walls of finely crafted cabinets with lighted glass display shelves. There is a summer kitchen on the upper terrace with views to the lower patio & the sculptured flowering gardens. Two additional bedrooms are on the 2nd floor, one of which has been used as an exercise room, the other as a second office. Plenty of parking space in the over sized two car garage & on the circular drive. Living here means everything is nearby ….the Saturday morning Farmer’s market, cafes, bakeshops, fun shopping, art galleries, theater, gourmet food shopping, Southside Village & walks along the bay front. Difficult to duplicate in this highly regarded neighborhood. Ample land for a beautiful pool.
