Classic Sapphire Shores ranch home on an oversized parcel just steps to Sun Circle Park. This 3 bed, 2 bath pool home is in very good condition and still retains some mid-century flair like the vaulted, beamed cypress ceilings and an interior, exposed, stacked block wall. It’s been enlarged over the years and now has an “eat in kitchen” and spacious interior utility room big enough to support just about any hobby. The pool & lanai were added in recent years providing a significant outdoor living area under roof and a great place to swim your laps or simply lounge about in the very private back yard. Sun Circle Park is within sight from the front yard and is wonderful place to walk along the waterfront and enjoy sunsets over Sarasota Bay and Longboat Key. Sapphire Shores in an eclectic waterfront neighborhood dating back to the Ringling Era and is now a combination of historic Mediterranean mansions, classic ranches and new construction. Live here amidst Sarasota's most significant cultural & educational institutions and you're only 2 miles north of downtown Sarasota, a 12-minute drive to St. Armands Circle and the beaches of Lido and Longboat Key and an equal distance to University Parkway anchored on the west by SRQ International Airport and UTC Mall and I75 on the east.
