Perfectly positioned directly on the west end of Dolphin Waterway in Bird Key, this immaculately maintained four-bedroom home flourishes in lovely updates and offers the avid yachtsmen multiple enviable boating options. This home’s location places it at the T-junction of Bird Key’s widest waterway, offering three unobstructed access points to Big Pass, the Gulf of Mexico, and Sarasota Bay; coupled with its 100’ of water frontage, deep-water dock and lift to create an ideal boater’s paradise. This residence was extensively updated and partially rebuilt in 2004/5, including a new roof, all new windows and sliders (not impact, although 3M hurricane film is affixed to all glass), Porcelain tile flooring, second story added, exterior refinished, pavered driveway and walking paths throughout the grounds, four-car garage, as well as wrought iron gated entry. Solid wood and glass double doors welcome you to the pristine, nearly 5,300-square-foot interior. Twelve-foot ceilings and plenty of windows enhance the sunny ambiance around every corner. Formal dining is steps from the living room, making entertaining a breeze. The granite kitchen overlooking the family room is filled with natural light from the wall of sliders that lead out to the pavered pool deck. The spacious master suite, and three bedrooms are arranged in a split plan, completing the first floor. The second level offers the option of a second, more private master suite, with its expansive bonus room that could also be converted to two additional suites as well. The media room and study complete the second floor. The open sundeck is the perfect spot to relax the day away, featuring heated swimming pool, spa, and brick steps that lead down to the waterfront. The jewel of Sarasota, Bird Key is nestled between Sarasota’s bustling downtown and St. Armand’s Circle. Joining the Bird Key Yacht Club is also a wonderful option. Members love the access to fine dining, private club activities, fitness center, tennis, swimming, and an additional place to dock your boat. The charming Bird Key Park is just a sun-filled bike ride from your front door.
