The coastal contemporary transformations adorning the exterior and interior of this cozy waterfront home will immediately draw you in and make it hard to ever leave. Located on a nearly quarter-acre lot overlooking peaceful waters, this three-bedroom elevated home is offered completely furnished with wonderful custom upgrades inside and out. Kemick Builders handled the recent 2017 renovations, which include metal roof with double water barriers, HardiPlank siding, seashell driveway lined with oversized boulders, tile entryway, impact windows and sliders, as well as keyless exterior doors. The open concept interior is spread across two living levels and encompasses more than 2,600-square-feet. The ground level houses the bonus room, featuring an outdoor entertaining space the leads out to the waterfront, plus wood-grain tile flooring, wet bar area accented by unique reclaimed wood barn door/cabinetry and handmade cement countertop, as well as a modernized full bathroom. At the heart of the main living level sits the chef’s kitchen decked out in a natural palette of all-white cabinetry, glass tile backsplash and Quartz countertops. This gourmet space overlooks the living/dining room and screened waterfront terrace beyond. Trendy features throughout highlight this home’s Cape Cod mood, such as the shiplap wall and cabinet accents, Bamboo flooring in every room, inspired light fixtures and designer ceiling fans. The master is in a secluded spot with its own waterfront terrace, his/her walk-in closets and newer Quartz en-suite bathroom. Two guest suites are arranged in a split plan to maximize privacy and share their own newer bathroom on the other side of the residence. This remote retreat is within walking distance to Sarasota Bay or the Gulf of Mexico. Boasting a fantastic place to escape and relish glimpses of Manatee lounging in sailboat-deep waters or Herons and Egrets in their natural habitat. The historic village of Long Beach is a delightful gem tucked away on the north end of one of Sarasota's most sought-after barrier islands. This neighborhood is comprised of custom-built homes, surrounded by azure, white-capped waves on the west and the open bay on the east. With Mar Vista Bar/Grill, The Shore and Cedars Tennis Resort a short distance away, plus Anna Maria, Bradenton Beach and Cortez a bit farther north, this special location offers the best of both worlds.
