BEST LOCATION, BEST QUALITY OF LIFE & BEST VALUE. This home is truly a one of a kind, awe-inspiring, Nature lover's dream. The property is an oasis of thriving Southwest Florida Wildlife (designated as a colossal sized Monarch Waystation by Monarch Watch) that sits smack dab in the middle of all that is fun and interesting to do in Sarasota. The elegant Feng Shui design and layout of this home, the Magic Faerie, Gnome and Butterfly Gardens, as well as its owner - a Master Practitioner of Classical Feng Shui - have been featured over the past 10 years in publications like Sarasota Magazine, SRQ Magazine, The Herald Tribune and Sarasota Natural Awakenings. This home - locally known as The Peace House - has been cherished by its community and the countless guests who have experienced the gardens, and the amazing creatures who live in them. Located in the highly coveted community of Southgate you'll have access to the top schools in town and upon arriving immediately experience the incredible ease in daily life here. Within a 2 block radius you'll find everything you need - 2 grocery stores (Aldis & Publix), 2 drug stores (Walgreens & CVS), 2 pet stores (Petco & Bark & Bath), an authentic French Bakery with the best bread in town (Rendez Vous), a full scale gym, the mall! Cinebistro, some of the best restaurants in town AND you can walk/run/bike year round to the #1 Best Beach in the US (actually made out of Quartz Crystal) Siesta Key located less than 5 miles away. The actual size of the lot that this home sits on is enormous - 16,280 SF - just shy of acre of land which makes this an incredible value by the square footage alone compared to prices of similar homes West of the Trail. On this property you'll find 15 years' worth of established landscape and waterscape plantings which are priceless. There are also many survivalist underpinnings here a 6000 gallon pond (full of Koi and turtles) can easily be stocked with eating fish, established fruit trees (Mango, Coconut, Lychee, White Grapefruit, Moringa) offer year-round delights, raised vegetable beds planted with tomatoes, zucchini and watermelons, and buckets of passion fruits all summer long, and even a designated area for Chicken Coop, Beehive and Butterfly House. The home itself is 1765 SF of wide-open, bright, sunlit space. Everything feels spacious and roomy. From 2017 - 2018 the entire home was gutted down to the studs, all interior walls were Durocked (waterproof sheetrock), all plumbing re-done properly through the concrete foundation (not overhead in the attic), all bathrooms redone, and all floors replaced with gorgeous porcelain tile that looks just like light wood, but not susceptible to water damage like real wood. The master bathroom is unique in that it features a double headed, glass block shower that makes you feel like you're standing outside. In addition to the 2 extra-large bedrooms there's a 600 SF bonus space with its own private entrance. This open space would be ideal as an art studio, private office, children's play or guest space. An enormous 1000 SF lanai is the place where you may entertain friends and family - swim, eat, sing, dance, sun, grill, happy hour - all activities that can be enjoyed year round by a salt, magnesium, Rose Quartz infused pool surrounded by wildlife. PLEASE NOTE: Narrated video tour of the gardens coming and most all of the crystals and statues in the garden are not included in the sale of the home.
