Details: This two-story home, situated on Little Sarasota Bay, with views of the bay and Siesta Key, is offered for the first time since it was built in 1998 by premier custom builder Todd Johnston.
On the main floor, enjoy views of the bay from the spacious master suite with master bath, walk-in closet, laundry center and direct access to the heated pool and spa. Watch the sunset over the bay and the lights of Siesta Key from the kitchen, living and dining areas.
Two guest rooms, a spacious office with his and hers built-in desks, a full bath, and a pool bath complete the first floor. Take in spectacular views from the second-floor master suite with two lanais overlooking the caged pool and bay.
A 900-square-foot unfinished bonus room above the garage can easily be made into a guest suite, media room, man cave or something else. This home is built like a fortress, with pilings going all the way down to bedrock and concrete block through the second floor up to the roof joists.
The owners have a rare and highly coveted transferable permit to trim the mangroves, so new owners will never lose the stunning views.
