Incredible opportunity to own a Bird Key waterfront estate situated on a canal with views of Sarasota Bay and Siesta Key! This home was designed by Edward J. (Tim) Seibert who is nationally recognized as a leading force in the Sarasota School of Architecture. The unique floor plan encompasses 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a great room, and a fabulous bonus room with floor to ceiling windows offering gorgeous water views, as well as allowing natural light pour in, blurring the lines between inside and out. The property is mostly in original 1966 condition; an addition was built in the 90’s consisting of a bedroom, bathroom, and new laundry room. The lot is bordered by a concrete seawall and includes a dock with lift; there is also plenty of room for a pool and outdoor entertaining - from a spacious front courtyard to the two rear patios that offer relaxing water views and soothing breezes. This property has the potential to be exquisitely remodeled, making the dream of owning a piece of paradise come true! The Bird Key Yacht Club is minutes away, and offers 3 Har-Tru clay tennis courts, fully equipped fitness center, and swimming pool. The marina is off the ICW and offers a robust boating program, as well as dock rental privileges. There are many social activities, including art openings, book reviews, bridge, style shows and more! Come experience the Bird Key lifestyle! As-is, with right to inspect. Tenant occupied for 15 months, beginning 09/01/14; contact LA for details!
